Speaking Their Language

By Andrea G. Schwartz
October 24, 2007

Americans have seen a tremendous influx of Spanish speaking immigrants into our country over the past 3 - 4 decades. Regardless of one's political bent on this issue, the fact remains that the majority of immigrant children are being educated in the public (state) school system. The natural consequence of such indoctrination and instruction will be graduates who embrace a humanistic/secular perspective and the agenda of an over-arching state.

The Chalcedon Foundation has recently embarked on a project to make a sizeable dent in this monopoly. If you route your browser to www.chalcedon.edu/espanol, you will find in Spanish Rushdoony's book The Philosophy of the Christian Curriculum (La filosofía del currículo cristiano), the "Introduction" to Volume One of The Institutes of Biblical Law (Institutos de la Ley Bíblica (Introducción), and my book Lessons Learned from Years of Homeschooling (Lecciones aprendidas de mis años educando en casa). Additionally, there are a number of translations from important articles from Faith for All of Life and numerous blog pieces. New articles are being added monthly.

Here's your assignment. We need to advertise this site as far and wide as possible. Most of us know someone whose native language is Spanish and who would benefit greatly from the perspective that Chalcedon propagates. Share this information with at least 2 - 3 people, encouraging them to pass it on to others.

In order to reach the nations with Chalcedon's message, plans are in the works to translate these offerings into other languages. These will eventually be accessible on the Chalcedon website.
