Coming Home seeks to make a real and practical connection between faith, the way we live, and the great ethical and environmental challenges of our time. It takes seriously the ways in which the shape of our household economy - our work, leisure, consumption, investment and use of time - impact our relations with others, with the earth, and with God. It provides a Christian vision of daily life that holds together the profound and the practical. Coming Home discusses subjects that are central to the lives of every person who knows that faith in Christ should make a difference. In Coming Home, Jonathan Cornford joins biblical theology with analysis of contemporary problems to help chart a practical, hopeful and life-giving path through troubled times. ""In this engagingly written book, Jonathan Cornford demonstrates how the radical message of the gospel speaks to the nitty gritty of our daily life. Weaving together astute cultural observations, wise biblical insights, and practical actions, Cornford paints a way of life where community can flourish in deeply faithful ways. This book calls out not only to be read, but to be studied with your church and community as a guide for deeper discipleship in an often overwhelming world."" --Dr. Sylvia C. Keesmaat, co-author of Colossians Remixed and Romans Disarmed ""If you are at all serious about the Christian faith and what it means to follow Jesus today, then frankly, this is a dangerous book. It's dangerous because it calls us to an expression of faith that really counts in the most daily actions of life. There are no remote theories or platitudes here. No doubt, this book is a good and accessible read. But be warned, reading it is risky business. It could change your life."" --Rev. Simon Carey Holt, Author of Eating Heaven and Heaven All Around Us ""Coming Home is gracious, inspiring, daunting and practical."" --Michael Frost, Author of Surprise the World and Keep Christianity Weird Jonathan Cornford is co-founder of Manna Gum, a ministry in 'good news economics'. He has a doctorate in political economy and spent fifteen years involved in research and advocacy on development issues in the Mekong Region (primarily Laos and Cambodia), with particular focus on the link between economic and ecological change.

He now lives with his wife and two daughters in Bendigo, Victoria, where they are members of the Seeds Community and the Common Rule Christian network.

A generation ago, the homeschooling movement was considered to be at best cutting-edge, eccentric, and alternative. At its worst it was considered strange, rare, and in some states illegal. But today the homeschooling movement has become more main-stream. Currently with over 2 million home educated children, it may well be the fastest growing form of education in the United States. There are many reasons parents take on the responsibility to educate their children at home, but often at the top of the list are religious or moral reasons. With the tearing down of Christian values in our society, it is understandable why parents want to bring their children back home. Christian's are waking up to the fact that education is not amoral. The education that a child receives will shape their life in all forms. But now we see many of these same children, raised in the faith, walking away at alarming rates. Years of surveys are confirming this. Church leaders and denominations are beginning to speak out. Multiple books on the subject are surfacing. And statistic after statistic is verifying the same ugly picture. We are losing our children, and homeschool families are not immune to this crisis. What is the answer? The answer does not lie within the halls of government, nor does it necessarily lie within the church. The answer to this problem can be found in God's Word and the solution rest with the parents. Home Discipleship is the key. But sadly, disciple making in the home is often thought of last and at times not at all. For some reason we think that if we are believers our children will automatically come to Christ and follow His ways. This book is about the discipleship process we find all throughout Scripture applied to the home. It covers the biblical mandate we have as parents, the structure of the Christian home, how to keep the proper perspective, fundamentals and practicalities of home discipleship, and addresses how a homeschooling lifestyle can help parents accomplish this very objective. Each chapter includes practical application questions to be used for personal reflection and family discussion.

A Christian who does not study the Word of God will not be able to live to the fullness of what God has promised to him or her. The enemy is trying to steal away our peace, and finally destroy us, hoping we will turn away from God. 2Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as an approved worker who has nothing to be ashamed of, handling the word of truth with precision. (ISV) Here we see we are to study His Word, to be approved workers, which is right, but let us look at the second part of this statement. handling the word of truth with precision. The word precision has an implication of importance and we need to know how to handle it in our defence against the enemy. We need to understand the Word of God clearly, so that we can extinguish the fiery arrows of the enemy.
