Zachary Garris holds a Master of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary (Jackson, MS) and a Juris Doctor from Wayne State University Law School. He is licensed to preach in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), and he has taught high school and Sunday school courses on ancient history, early church history, medieval history, logic, Bible, systematic theology, covenant theology, apologetics, and worldview.
Zachary is the editor of Dabney On Fire: A Theology of Parenting, Education, Feminism, and Government and author of the e-book Thinking Biblically About Education. He contributes to the Bible resource website KnowingScripture.com, and he has written articles for the Mises Institute, Desiring God, the Abbeville Institute, the Foundation for Economic Education, The Liberty Conservative, and LesserMagistrate.com.
TeachDiligently.com is devoted to helping parents provide their children with a Christian education. Zachary writes articles on education from a biblical worldview, encouraging parents to leave the secular government schools and take back control of their children's education. Whether choosing to homeschool or send kids to a private Christian school, parents and teachers need resources for Christian education. Zachary therefore reviews and recommends book and video resources that teach our Western history and Christian values. These are Christian education resources that can be used in the home, school, and church.
The site's title comes from Deuteronomy 6:7, where in reference to His words, God commanded parents, "You shall teach them diligently to your children." The New Testament reaffirms this command, as the Apostle Paul tells fathers to train their children "in the discipline and instruction of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4). God expects Christian parents to provide their children with a Christian education. May this site help parents in their obedience to this task.
