Item description for A History of Christian Education by James E. Reed & Ronnie Prevost...

Where does the study of Christian education begin? This comprehensive text starts at its roots in ancient Hebrew traditions. Continuing through the Middle Ages and into the 20th century, the authors synthesize biblical, theological, philosophical, cultural, political, and social perspectives of each era. Includes chapters devoted to the education of women during each historical period.

Publishers Description

Ours is an age of rapid change. What is fashionable comes and goes more quickly than ever before. In a world of such rapid change, it's essential to know who you are--to know where you come from, to have your roots go deep. Walking through this book is like going to a large family reunion and meeting for the first time some relatives you didn't know you had. Here in all of its richness and diversity is your family of faith. Of course, the roots of Christian education go deep into the Hebrew heritage. In many ways, Christian education is an extension of Hebrew education.

Reviews - What do customers think about A History of Christian Education?

Excellent Summary of the History of Christian Education  Dec 4, 2004
Reed and Prevost have written an excellent story on how Christian Education has changed and improved over the years.

The writing style is engaging and easy to follow. The book is divided into 7 major parts:

1. Education in Ancient Societies.
2. Ancient Christian Education.
3. Christian Education in the Middle Ages.
4. Christian Education in the Renaissance and Reformation.
5. The Beginnings of Modern Christian Education.
6. Americans and Christian Education.
7. Christian Education in the Twentieth Century.

Since the 1993 edition is newer than Kenneth Gangel and Warren Benson's 1983 book on Christian Education: Its History and Philosophy, this title compares favorably to the latter.

Read and enjoy. Highly recommended!
A good synopsis of the history of Christian education  Jun 29, 1999
Reed and Prevost offer a concise, easy-to-read summary of the Christian education. The chronology stems from ancient education to modern Christian education. The book addresses the cultural and philosophical issues that impacted Christian educators throughout history. Furthermore, Reed and Prevost also address non-Christian educators that impacted Christian education. I found that the book offered enough information to cover the subject adequately, but remained brief enough to be useful to the majority of people. This book is useful to those involved in Christian education as a tool and reflective piece.
