Does the Bible have answers to the tough dilemmas that plague our nation’s schools?
The educational crisis in America has become so desperate that most “experts” agree we are “a nation at risk.” Academic standards are declining. SAT scores are declining. Teacher competency is declining. In fact, just about everything we do with our schools is declining . . .except the costs, the crime, the drug abuse and the immorality.
Tragically, most of the experts don’t have answers to these dilemmas.
But the Bible does.
In this volume of the groundbreaking Biblical Blueprints Series, Robert Thoburn outlines specifically what those answers are. He shows us just exactly what we can do to restore academic and moral excellence in our schools according to Scripture’s own plan.
The Bible tells us what to do: when, where, how, and why. It offers us a “blueprint” for educational reform. The Children Trap lays out that blueprint simply, practically, and understandably. It shows us how to reverse the decline and answer the dilemmas.

Part 10: Do We Mean What We Say, and Say What We Mean?
When this brilliant and prophetic book was first published in 1961, the Christian homeschool movement was years away and even Christian day schools were hardly considered a viable educational alternative. But this book and the author’s later Messianic Character of American Education were a resolute call to arms for Christians to get their children out of the pagan public schools and provide them with a genuine Christian education. Dr. Rushdoony had predicted that the humanist system, based on anti-Christian premises of the Enlightenment, could only get worse. Rushdoony was indeed a prophet. He knew that education divorced from God and from all transcendental standards would produce the educational disaster and moral barbarism we have today.
The title of this book is particularly significant in that Dr. Rushdoony was able to identify the basic contradiction that pervades a secular society that rejects Gods sovereignty but still needs law and order, justice, science, and meaning to life. As Dr. Rushdoony writes, “there is no law, no society, no justice, no structure, no design, no meaning apart from God.” And so, modern man has become schizophrenic because of his rebellion against God.
