True Education Reader: 5th Grade / Peck, Sarah Elizabeth / Paperback / LSI

945-6200 L


In a time where Christ is banished from the classroom, there exists a need for a return to the traditional values and beliefs. The True Education Reader series is a set of textbooks designed in the early 1900's for the elementary level. These readers were published in part as a response to the need for school readers free from myth and fairy tales, and whose core values upheld an early development of faith in the sacred Word. Such textbooks are in need again as modern science and lax morals undermine a simple belief in the word of God.
Sarah Elizabeth Peck (1868-1968) was a well-known author at the turn of the century.
Working on Ellen White's staff for over 10 years in Australia, her work is still the backbone of the indexing system used in the White Estate. She served as Principal of Claremont Union College in South Africa and taught at Union College. In her later years she worked as Superintendent of Education in the California Conference and concluded her career in the GC Education Department. She assisted in the preparation of the book Education and the True Education Readers series.
Also by this author: The Path to the Throne of God, Life of Jesus, Sanctuary Workbook, Stories from Israel, When the World Was Young and God's Great Plan.
