Description

"Highly recommend[ed] to anyone in the field of Christian education and spiritual formation"

"Freddy Cardoza has assembled an exemplary team of educators and theologians to compile this text. Each of these authors are subject-matter experts in their fields, and their corresponding chapters represent some of the most cutting-edge research paired with real-life ministry application. I have no doubt that it will become a classic in the field and serve to guide the ministry efforts of countless church and parachurch professionals in the decades to come. I applaud this tome and highly recommend it to anyone in the field of Christian education and spiritual formation."
--Michael J. Anthony, Talbot School of Theology

"An interesting and worthwhile contribution to Christian education. This book covers the whole field of evangelical Christian education, beginning with educational foundations and continuing through theory, administration, ministries, and specializations. Cardoza has been able to convene a cadre of some of the finest minds today to share their expertise and research. The reader will find that this textbook has a satisfying balance of both the theoretical and the practical. It is filled with an abundance of theory and foundation to satisfy the academic purposes of colleges and seminaries, yet it contains practical handles for those who are looking for fresh ideas to employ in the teaching-learning world."
--Wesley Black, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (retired); minister to legacy and senior adults, Travis Avenue Baptist Church, Fort Worth, Texas

"Like every generation before us, we must pass on our knowledge to the next generation of Christian leaders. I strongly recommend this book to future Christian educators who want a fresh approach for engaging a generation living in a world more technologically advanced, socially aware, and spiritually divided. The various sections were well written--theologically and practically--and will be helpful for educators, students, and church leaders."
--Kevin Nguyen, California Baptist University, Crown College, and Biola University; pastor of leadership and multiplication, Mariners Church, Irvine, California
