An endearing adventure of the Arnold Pent family who followed an unconventional path as what some have called "the first modern home school family". In the early 1950s, Arnold Pent, Jr., and his wife Persis took their eight children out of public schools and began a million mile journey throughout the US and Canada together. Along the way, they presented their gospel message in churches, schools, and wherever they had opportunity.
Central to the family's daily practice was in-depth Bible reading, study, and memorization. Their public programs featured music, preaching, scripture recitation, and always encouraged families to read the Bible together. The book was written by Arnold Pent III, the third child, who compiled it when he was 21 from his journals written as a teenager. A great story for those interested in home education, family discipleship, and evangelism.
If you ate expecting the recordings of the Pent family singing and quoting scripture, it is not on this recording. The story is very encouraging, and good for the WHOLE family to listen too👍😁
This is a beautiful story of a family working together for the glory of God.
This book reaffirms my faith in God. I admire the Pence family, especially the parents who so diligently taught their children such wonderful life lessons. I am going to read it again or listen to it again because I know I'll learn even more the second time. I wish there were more books like this on Audible.
