Why We Are All Green Now: Understanding Environmentalism by Dr. James Wanliss
In this seminar, Dr. James Wanliss—university physics professor, space scientist, and expert reviewer for the United Nations IPCC—explains the emergence of environmentalism and Dark Green religion and why the Church, particularly young people, risk modifying the gospel in favor of ecocentric sensibilities. Is this good or bad for the church and society? This is a seminar for those wanting to understand the worldview, theology, ethics, and politics of the Green movement and to have those views subjected to a penetrating, biblically grounded critique by a practicing scientist and Christian.
A Biblical Philosophy of Education by Dr. James Wanliss
In this seminar Dr. James Wanliss—homeschool father, college professor, and space physicist—asks what it takes to achieve the goal expressed in Proverbs 22:6: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Our basic duty as parents and home educators is found in these words. Dr. Wanliss develops values upon which Christian homeschools will thrive as he draws practical educational principles from the wisdom of the Bible.
Abraham, The Good Father by Dr. James Wanliss
In this seminar, Dr. James Wanliss, university physics professor and space scientist, encourages fathers to engage with the mission of homeschooling their children. As a busy college professor and researcher, he knows the personal struggle of balancing work demands with the need to guide the education of his children. After a busy day at work, helping homeschool is a challenge for any dad. Fathers have too often ceded responsibility to mothers, who have their own frustrations trying to teach their kids singlehandedly. James refocuses the mission, encouraging busy fathers to aim for the glory of God in raising their children. But how? James gives tips and biblical examples to help them take charge and to be godly fathers and husbands.
Amusing Our Children To Death by Dr. James Wanliss
In this seminar Dr. James Wanliss—homeschool father, college professor, and space physicist—asks a simple question: How should we entertain our children? Entertainment wastes time and goods and wastes our minds when not used productively. Time is first consumed in thinking, planning, and talking about it. Then more time, as well as wealth, is taken up in actually doing it. At some point all parents have to cope with children complaining that they are bored. In frustration or exhaustion, parents may be tempted to offer their children entertainment recommended by the world. But the problem is that worldly entertainment invariably fosters self-indulgence and strengthens a rebellious will. Drawing from biblical examples and personal experience, James shows how parents can create appetites in their children to encourage them to hunger and thirst after righteousness instead.
