The most traduced and misunderstood book in the world today must be the Bible. Yet it is described by the missionary organisation, Crosslinks, as “God’s word to God’s world”. Though the book of books has no place in our much-vaunted age of enlightenment, we at Cavina firmly believe that all our pupils must hear the Gospel presented in a way that will challenge them to think more deeply about the purpose of our existence.

In the time available it is not possible to cover all sixty-six books of the Bible, but the syllabus is extensive enough to give a rough outline of the four main epochs in our history: Creation, the fall, Redemption (our present epoch) and (still to come) consummation. Some prospective parents may fear indoctrination. Please be assured that only God the father (through the Holy spirit) draws us to His Son, in whom alone real life is to be found. 

Your children will inevitably be influenced by the fluctuating spirit of the age. Here they will be encouraged to cultivate the spirit of discernment, for whatever they choose to believe will affect their lives for good or ill. The apostle Paul informed his protégé, Timothy, that “all scripture is inspired by God, and is useful to teach us what is true, and to make us realise what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare his people to every good work.” If Paul’s words are taken to heart, pupils will find that “God’s word is a lantern unto their feet and a light for their minds.”  Surely none will quarrel with that.
