Basics of christian Education Jul 21, 2005
A very insiteful book that all chrsitian educatiors should read.
A very helpful overview Aug 19, 2003
In a compact text, Tye provides a very helpful overview of the basic building blocks of Christian education, as she sees them. In addition, she introduces the reader to several other prominent writers and theologians working in the field. This book would be an excellent resource for those seeking to be more intentional about their work in Christian education, or for those leading a workshop, training, or study on Christian education.
A good place to start Jul 6, 2003
This book tries to do so much in so little pages. As the book says it is the basics of Christian education, but sometimes an overview is so broad, that you cannot see that much. While the chapters are generally good, one has to use her Bibliography in order to actually understand what happens in Christian Education. This book would be good for volunteers who want more a general idea of why Christian Education is important.
