Product description

Building on the success of his 1992 collection "Foundations of Ministry" (over 17,000 sold), Michael Anthony offers "Introducing Christian Education" to fill the need in the C.E. curriculum for an introductory foundations textbook--one that provides an overview and understanding of the broad range of subjects included in C.E.--for college and seminary use. Thirty-one chapters are offered under the following sections: 1) Foundations of C.E.; 2) Developmental Perspectives of C.E.; 3) Educational Implications of C.E.; 4) Organization, Administration, and Leadership; 5) C.E. Applied to the Family; and 6) Specialized Ministries. Contributors include Robert Pazmino, Jim Wilhoit, Julie Gorman, Klaus Issler, and Ted Ward. FROM THE FOREWORD BY LESTER C. BLANK JR. "Introducing Christian Education" will become a major resource text for church leaders and Christian education leaders who are professors of Christian education. It will be a valuable resource in my personal library. The desired outcome will be Psalm 78:72: ""He cared for them with a true heart and led them with skillful hands.""

Back cover copy

A Complete Christian Education Resource "This volume will become a major resource text for church leaders, as well as Christian education leaders who are professors of Christian education" -Lester C. Blank Jr., from the foreword Successful Christian education ministry is built on strong foundations. Yet Christian education is often steeped in misunderstanding and misconception. Although grounded in biblical studies and theology, Christian education seeks to integrate these areas with a variety of social sciences including education, sociology, and psychology. Michael Anthony has created an outstanding guide to this integration that fills the need for an introductory textbook providing an overview and understanding of the broad range of subjects included in Christian education. "Introducing Christian Education" begins with a discussion of the theological historical, and philosophical bases for Christian ministry. From there it examines contributions of the social sciences through the lens of biblical teaching. Another section is dedicated to the organization and administration of ministry. The final two sections apply Christian education theory to various age groups and specialized areas of the population. This book will help ministry leaders design programs that integrate the changing needs of contemporary society with the unchanging truth of God's Word. Contributors include: Warren S.
