The writing is a bit dry, but Introducing Christian Education has some interesting information!

This is a good book, but a bit dated. It is a real hodge-podge, with the main editor contributing one section and each author being very distinct. There is no over-arching agenda, other than to introduce the reader to all the topics. All the authors are broadly evangelical, and non-seems distinctly Calvinist or Presbyterian (i.e. no Covenant Succession). I would recommend this to be read by any pastor, church educator, teacher, elder or parent.

Read most of the chapters. Because they are written by different authors, some are okay and some are great. My favorite was probably Chapter 17 about small churches.

I found this book full of useful information, but dreadfully boring. I know that some textbooks are not meant to be entertaining, but as a teacher I should hope it at least be encouraging or motivating to my ministry. Still a necessary part of my training, covering everything from the history of Christian education, to approaches to developmental psychology, to different teaching methods.

A very solid, thorough introduction to nearly every possible aspect of what we call "Christian Education." There's a good mix of theory, history, and philosophy as well as many practical examples of how the teaching and learning processes play out. Probably just about the best book of its kind.

A useful resource but painful to read. In fact, I wouldn't recommend trying to read straight through it. Instead use it to look up basic info on various people and approaches to education and christian ed.

This was a bit of a painful read, but informative for someone who is not conversant with various theories regarding the philosophies of education and their relationship to education within the church. I imagine I will consult with this book again in the future.

Anything and everything about Christian Education. It reads like a textbook- all the information you need along with all its staleness.
