    When I'd purchased the book, my impression had been that its focus was figuring out what kinds of educational options might work within one's context. Instead it turned out to be more of a textbook for someone in a class on Christian Education within a church community setting. Given my background in College Student Personnel, I was familiar with learning theory,but for readers without previous exposure, I would think it would be quite helpful. Though I do think it stopped short of connecting pr When I'd purchased the book, my impression had been that its focus was figuring out what kinds of educational options might work within one's context. Instead it turned out to be more of a textbook for someone in a class on Christian Education within a church community setting. Given my background in College Student Personnel, I was familiar with learning theory,but for readers without previous exposure, I would think it would be quite helpful. Though I do think it stopped short of connecting practice with theory. Granted, that's probably easier to do in a classroom than via a book. What I particularly liked was her focus on the need for on going education for teachers. I agreed. I think often people are reluctant to teach out of a feeling that they do not know enough or the right stuff if questions come up. However, sorting out the solution to the flip side, getting teachers to show for the teaching is no small feat.

    Norma's book on educating congregations should be foundational in the foundation of Religious Education. Her message is wonderfully good with great nuggets that can be integrated in to your current program. There are no easy solutions included, you must internalize what's in the book and apply it.
