Product Description



By Arnold Pent III

An endearing adventure of the Arnold Pent family who followed an unconventional path as what some have called "the first modern homeschool 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.


One of my favorite stories. The million-mile journey of Arnold Pent, Jr. and his wife and eight children as they traveled through US and Canada together. The father preached along the way. But no matter where they were, or whoever they stayed with, they never gave up their practice of daily Bible reading and memorization.

The father took time to read the Bible to his family for one hour morning, noon, and night. Because of the constant reading, most of the children could recite the whole New Testament and many passages of the Old.

Challenging and inspiring reading. I would encourage EVERY family to read this book. A great read for family story time.


~“TEN P’S IN A POD should be required reading. I still count it among one of the handful of most important books I have ever read.” 

~ Andrée Seu Peterson, World Magazine Columnist

~“Your book is a breath of fresh air.”

~“In a society where the Bible is rarely read, even in Christian homes, this book should be necessary (but enjoyable) reading for EVERY Christian family.”

~“How this husband and wife were able to take a family of eight children across both the United States and Canada throughout the 1950s and early 60s in various old cars is a story worth reading.”

~“I read this book out loud to my husband while we were on a long trip. Reading it out loud made the Scriptures and stories come alive. I’ve been greatly affected by the book.”
