This past Monday, March 26, 2012, Dr. Jonathan Sarfati spoke in Winston-Salem, NC on the topic “Design, Deluge & Dilemma.”

Dr. Jonathan Sarfati is a former New Zealand national chess champion and creationist author with a PhD in chemistry. He works full-time for Creation Ministries International in Atlanta, GA. You can read a more complete bio at the Creation.com website. Some of the excellent Creation resources from Creation Ministries International that Dr. Sarfati has penned include Refuting Evolution, which now has over 400,000 copies in print, Refuting Compromise, and is the co-author of the popular Creation Answers Book.

Additionally, Dr. Sarfati serves as co-editor of the beautiful Creation magazine and also writes and reviews articles for the Journal of Creation.

These all make wonderful resources for homeschoolers seeking to teach science from a Christian worldview.

We had an opportunity to interview Dr. Sarfati before his lecture to ask him some questions pertinent to homeschoolers. Enjoy the podcast!

As we continue our back-to-school interviews with homeschooling moms and dads from all walks of life, our special guests today are Dwight Gullion, homeschooling father & owner of Gullion’s Christian Supply, and Nancy Glidewell, homeschooling mother and the homeschool curriculum coordinator at the Gullion’s Winston-Salem store. Together, they offer up their professional and practical tips on how to choose the curriculum that best suits your family. Be sure to check out Gullion’s on the web Gullion’s Christian Supply for an incredible range of used and new books & supplies for homeschoolers!

This is the second of a two-part series, in which we talk about the following: Why is it important to choose a specific curriculm approach? Why can’t we just “wing it” and study whatever we and the kids want to learn on any given day? How can we use the curriculum to individually nurture each of our very special and uniquely different children? How important is it to use Bible-based textbooks? Why should we stay away from books with magic and occult? How can we incorporate Bible truths by using Christ-honoring literature? Here are some of the great literature series and authors that Dwight and Nancy recommend: Journey Forth series from BJUPress, Mandy, Sugar Creek Classics, Elsie Dinsmore, G.A. Henty, Lamplighter Books, R.M. Ballantyne, Jonathan Park. You can do a websearch for any of these series/titles/authors or visit Gullion’s Christian Supply.
