  • Please Read: The Purpose of this Education Resource Center

    This blog space serves as a resource for those reading and utilizing the books offered by Forgotten Lighthouse.  While the books we publish may be utilized for youth, young adults, and adults alike, they are largely written out of an experience of working with youth and young adults for two decades in the classroom and Church context.  Consequently, those using these books in the context of the homeschool, classroom, and Church should find themselves at ease using these books.
  • Introducing The Foundations Series

    Upon first glance, one might think that The Foundations Series is designed only for a theology class.  Such an assumption shows how far Christian education has drifted from traditional Christian education.  We compartmentalize theology to a discipline rather than recognizing the permeation of the beliefs, ideas, and assumptions we hold dear in our faith into every aspect of our lives.  These foundational ideas are not merely an intellectual exercise but are rooted in and born out of a culture, that is, the life of the Church.

  • Welcome to the Introduction to the Church Fathers Series

    Beginning to read the Church Fathers can prove difficult for a number of reasons.  One common challenge is people often do not know where to begin.  They may pick up a volume of homilies or a theological discourse and begin reading, which is similar to starting to read the Bible beginning with Deuteronomy, quickly feeling overwhelmed and disinterested.  Another reason is that the Church Fathers can be perceived as difficult to understand. 

  • Introducing The Life in Christ Series

    How are we as Christians to understand and approach marriage, family, education, technology, work, etc. in our daily living?  In a post-Christian world, the subtle workings of the culture can quickly undermine, redefine, and reorient our lives, despite our best of intentions.  This series takes a serious look at how the mind of the Church Fathers calls us to live as Christians within these various domains of our lives.
