Item description for Building Biblical Values: Innovative Learning Exercises for All Ages by Harold J. Westing & Penny Thome...
Overview Children, young people, and even adults increasingly operate on the basis of a relative value system accumulated through public education and the popular media. One of the major tasks of a church's educational ministry must be the clear teaching of scriptural values based on the authority of God's Word. Building Biblical Values is a new approach to the crucial issue of values education. It takes its clue from the ministry of Jesus who, as the authors observe, "modeled for us that the Christian lifestyle is most accurately learned when, in a sense, disciples' hands are held and they are guided through appropriate learning experiences." A variety of group activities are included that can be used for Sunday school sessions, leadership training, home schooling, adult retreats, Vacation Bible School, women's fellowship groups, camps, and Christian day schools. They are written specifically to help the participants become intentional about their values, that is, to seriously and consistently develop Christ-like attitudes and behaviors.
Publishers Description Westing and Thome provide a variety of group activities written to help readers become intentional about their spiritual values.
