Advance Praise for Why They Must Go
“A ‘must read’ for everyone who loves and values our children and youth and wants to see them saved in God’s kingdom.” —Dr. Penny Lister Smith, Education Superintendent, South Atlantic Conference “An excellent piece of reading material; I trust that it will reawaken the purpose of SDA education!” —Shakuntala Ramsarran, Education Superintendent, Southwest Region Conference “I highly recommend the reading and study of Terrell McCoy’s new book (which)… highlights the need for home, church, and school to work together in the preparation of our offspring to meet the challenges of life on this earth while also preparing the children that God has given us to live in Eternity with the Master Teacher.” —Dr. Doug Walker, Former Education Director, Southwestern Union An outgrowth of a series of sermons delivered on Christian education by author Terrell McCoy, Why They Must Go
presents strong arguments for providing Seventh-day Adventist children with an Adventist education. Expounding on the purpose and the goals of a Christian education, McCoy argues that children are God’s property and they must be related to in God’s way. He urges parents to keep the “church” in church schools.
