Publishers 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.""

Christian Ed textbook Mar 10, 2008
This book is a good resource for a foundational study of Christian Education. It is written primarily for an overview of adult Christian education. It is helpful to someone taking a beginning course in Christian Ed. or someone who finds themselves newly appointed to overseeing a church Christian Education program.
