Originally written in 1976, revised in 2000, and translated in six languages, this classic critique of Christian education is newly revised and expanded and includes Westerhoffas overview and perspective on the state of Christian education over the past forty yearsaplus his role in that history. 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?How do you help others acquire the skills necessary to be responsible political and social activists in proclaiming the Gospel in ... no new insights on learning, no new teacher-training programs, and no new educational technology will save us.
