Customer Reviews For "Discovering Australia's Christian Heritage"Write Your Own Review
I thought this was a documentary, but I was mistaken. This is a DVD recording of a talk by Col Stringer expounding on his book "Discovering Australia's Christian Heritage". Col is passionate about parents sharing the Christian heritage of Australia with their children. I suspect his book is worth a read, as he provides a good reference list, however his teaching style is a like a mash up of Steve Irwin and T.D Jakes. Also his use of Scripture to support his point that we need to teach our children Australia's Christian heritage is poorly founded. For example where Scripture encourages parents to teach children the works of God in saving His people Israel from slavery, Col uses the same scripture to promote teaching children Australian Christian history. I regret my purchase.
