Originally written in 1976, and translated in six languages, this classic critique of Christian education is newly revised and expanded.This edition includes Westerhoff’s overview on the state of Christian Education over the past forty years and his role in that history. Featuring a study guide by Christian formation specialist Sharon Pearson, it offers fresh perspectives and insight for those who know the subject area well, while remaining the foundational text for a new generation of readers—from parents to seminarians to practitioners.
