Item description for Educating in Faith: Maps and Visions by Mary C. Boys...

Overview
Mary Boys offers a new way of thinking about what it means to educate religiously. Utilizing the method of map-making to broaden the context of American religious education, Boys defines a process that incorporates each instructor's own experiences, perspectives, and analytical insights to develop more compelling teaching methods. By placing both Protestant and Catholic religious education in both a historical and conceptual framework, Boys establishes a theological and educational basis for providing answers to central questions: What does it mean to educate in faith? What is the teacher's role? How much emphasis should be given to psychology, anthropology, and sociology? Toward what view of society is a theory of religious education oriented?

Reviews - What do customers think about EDUCATING IN FAITH?

Tough, but Well Worth It  Jan 11, 2005
Mary Boys is a nun with a serious intellect and she has a gem for those who teach religion or religious education or those who educate others in faith (whatever).

I seriously recommend this to those who want something relevant and interesting that has obviously been well thought out and just as well written. If you want a more practical book on an approach to teaching at your Church, you may want Thomas Groome. But this is quite well and compliments Groome's work (and others) nicely. O yes, and it looks great on the bookshelf when your done with it and save it for later reference.
