Born in Cape Town and raised in Rhodesia, Dr. Peter Hammond has been a pioneer missionary to some of the worst war zones in the world. Since his conversion in 1977, Dr. Peter Hammond has served persecuted churches and pioneered evangelistic outreaches into Mozambique, Angola, Sudan, Rwanda, Congo and Nigeria. In the course of his missionary activities Peter has been ambushed, come under aerial and artillery bombardments, been stabbed, shot at, beaten by mobs, arrested, imprisoned and tortured for Christ.
Dr. Peter Hammond is the Founder of Frontline Fellowship, the Reformation Society, Africa Christian Action, the William Carey Bible Institute and Henry Morton Stanley School of Christian Journalism.
He is the author of Faith Under Fire In Sudan, Holocaust In Rwanda, In the Killing Fields of Mozambique, The Greatest Century of Missions, Biblical Principles For Africa, The Greatest Century of Reformation, The Answering Skeptics, Old Testament Survey, Sketches from South African History, Victorious Christians – Who Changed the World, The Ten Commandments –God’s Perfect Law of Liberty, The Chaplains Handbook and Security and Survival Handbook.
Peter, and his wife Lenora, are home schooling parents of four children. Peter has helped establish over 100 Christian schools and numerous Bible Colleges throughout Africa. He has smuggled in and distributed hundreds of thousands of Bibles, New Testaments and Christian books into communist and Muslim nations.
With recent court cases and Bills being proposed to further restrict religious freedom in education in South Africa, even more parents are withdrawing their children from government schools and turning to private Christian schools and home schooling.
Who is ultimately responsible for our children’s future? As we look behind the scenes at the state curriculum we consider the objectives and are shocked at the moral values, worldview and religious beliefs being propagated in the classroom. We need to learn from the history and philosophy of public school education and consider practical steps that we can take to protect our children from indoctrination in the classroom. We have for 24 years been researching and producing excellent resources to help parents as we seek to bring up our children in the love, fear and admonition of the Lord.
“And these Words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7
More destructive than even the blatant paganism being promoted by the Hollywood entertainment industry, secular humanism in state schools is having an even more devastating effect on families, the Faith and our future.
For most of the last 2,000 years, schools have been pioneered and run by parents, Churches, Missions and Christian communities.
