Exodus Mandate Project Promotes New Book ‘Truth is Fallen in the Street: Examining the Pedagogy of Christian Teachers in Public Schools’
The Exodus Mandate Project and Lt. Col. E. Ray Moore are teaming up with author and teacher, Jay Jusino, at Equipping Teachers International, Inc., to embolden Christian teachers in public schools to reexamine their teaching methods in light of the origin and purpose of knowledge.
Jay holds double B.S. degrees in Biology and Education, is a husband and father of seven children, is in his 20th year of teaching secondary students (biology, chemistry, anatomy, and Bible, etc.), and is the science, curriculum, and staff development director at Friendship Christian School in Suwanee, GA. Jay is also the founder and director of Equipping Teachers International, Inc., a ministry dedicated to training up teachers to teach in the fear of the Lord (Prov. 1:7).The Challenge
Parents send their children to school, and students attend school, with the expectation that they will receive knowledge, and that this knowledge will be the key to unlocking their future potential. The Bible teaches clearly that it is the fear of the Lord that is the beginning of knowledge (Prov. 1:7). As such, acknowledgement of God is fundamental to any, and all, knowledge-based pedagogy. To teach any academic subjects apart from Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Co1. 2:3), is to fundamentally disconnect the world we all see and live in from the One it was created by and for. In this work, the Christian teacher in the public setting is challenged to re-examine his/her fundamental pedagogical approach in light of the premise of Proverbs 1:7.
“I don’t know of any other resource available today that deals with many of the questions that Jay Jusino tackles in his important book. All who are in one way or another engaged in the battle for the heart, mind and soul of our nation, especially those who labor as teachers and those who train teachers, owe it to themselves-and to the fulfillment of their calling-to read and study this volume. Jay: Great work on the book-it’s such an easy read and full of wisdom.” — Joaquin Fernandez; Great Commission Films; Co-producer, IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America
“In Truth is Fallen, Jay Jusino debunks the myth that education can ever be religiously neutral. If we do not begin with faith, and the fear of the Lord, in education, then everything else will be askew. This book will challenge your paradigms and assumptions and very possibly reorient everything you thought you knew about education.” — Israel Wayne: Author of, Full-Time Parenting: A Guide to Family-Based Discipleship, Questions God Asks, Questions Jesus Asks, Pitchin’ a Fit: Overcoming Angry and Stressed-Out Parenting and Education: Does God Have an Opinion?, Answers for Homeschooling.
