Will Our Children Have Faith?

Third Revised Edition

John H. Westerhoff III

Aug/2012, 208 Pages, Paperback, 5.5 x 8.5

ISBN-13: 9780819228000



This classic critique of Christian education is revised, expanded and includes Westerhoff's overview on the state Christian education over the past forty years.

According to Westerhoff, instead of guiding faith formation within the family, the church, and the school, we relegate religious education to Sunday morning classes. There, children learn the facts about religion, but how will they learn or experience faith? How can we nourish and nurture the faith of children, instead of only teaching the facts?

John H. Westerhoff taught at numerous Episcopal, Roman Catholic, and Protestant theological schools around the world, retiring in 1994 as the Professor of Theology and Christian Nurture at Duke Divinity School. He is the author of more than 25 books, including Will Our Children Have Faith?, Living Faithfully as a Prayer Book People, and A Pilgrim People. He died in 2022.
