Product Description

In this introductory treatment of Christian education, the authors assume that \"religious education begins with the basic human need to make meaning. The church and its education fail when they do not take into account people\'s life experiences and their search for faithfulness.\" Teachers and pastors learn first to understand how their own meanings have been shaped, then to name and clarify how religious meaning is transmitted and transformed through personal experience. Several personal and congregational \"stories\" are woven throughout the text to help the reader better understand how meaning, learning, and vocation converge as Christians grow in faith and understanding.

Readers are encouraged to apply new insights to their own lives through activities that are suggested throughout the text. A Key Concept Index provides easy access to primary terms and ideas.
