In this episode, I share my best insights and practical tips for talking with your kids about non-Christian worldviews, based on our months of doing this as a formal part of our homeschool schedule. (You do not need to be homeschooling to implement any of what I talk about–this is for all parents!)
This episode will explain:
- Why it’s mission critical for Christian parents to teach kids about non-Christian worldviews.
- Three key things kids should understand about the nature of studying world religions before you even start discussing.
- Three “best practices” from my experience for how to discuss the particulars of other religions.
In addition, I’m doing a giveaway of the forthcoming Popular Handbook of World Religions to 5 lucky winners! As I discuss in the episode, this is a hugely valuable resource for Christian parents.
