This is a classic work on Christian education by one of its foremost proponents from the 20th century, Frank Gaebelein (also co-editor of Christianity Today with Carl F. H. Henry, as well as style editor for the New International Version of the Bible). It is in this book (actually in the lectures from which this book was adapted) that the phrase "All truth is God's truth" was so aptly coined . And in this book consists some foundational understanding of a Biblical philosophy of Christian educati ...more
Just about every new idea that current Christian educators come up with has been around at least since Gaebelein put his thoughts together. This books is comprised of a series of talks given by Gaebelein at Dallas Seminary many years ago. The book is not good because of the author's eloquence, but because he is spot on for every argument he makes.

One of the better books from the required reading for ACSI. It was pretty direct and actually had some really practical points. A little wordy at points and not always moving forward, but pretty good food for thought.

It's a good book for Christian teachers and administrators. It's got some terrific takeaways. Highly quotable. I skimmed through some long sections, which helped me enjoy the book a lot. In places, it is brilliant. In others, it's pretty dull. It was short enough that it felt worth the investment of time.
