Great Foundation!
5 stars By Katie, Apr 26 2013
I have recently studied this book as a part of my year 12 homeschooling (A.C.H.) and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

On a whole it provides brilliant clear examples, helpful hints, and more.

All on a VERY strong Biblical base.

Little is taught without several verses, real life examples, and pure logic to confirm it.

I loved this book, and would recommend it not only for people in oversight, but also for every other Christian I know.

Everyone should know how to train, encourage, and use the Bible like this.

I wish I'd read this book sooner!
