If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?
A ministry is the product of ideas. The Bible is our primary source of inspiration and ideas. Here is a sampling of books and authors whose ideas have contributed to the way we approach education. It should be apparent that listing a book is not an endorsement of every idea promoted in it. All of these books should be thought provoking. Some are controversial.
