For almost twenty years, Foundational Issues in Christian Education has been a key text for many Christian education courses. Its perceptive analysis coupled with clear writing make it a resource without peer. In the book, Christian education expert Robert Pazmi o guides readers through a comprehensive discussion of the interdisciplinary foundations of Christian education, calling all Christian educators to reevaluate the fundamentals of their discipline. "A careful exploration of foundations," writes Pazmi o, "is essential before specifying principles and guidelines for practice."
This updated edition includes interaction with professional developments over the past ten years and appendixes that assess the impact of postmodernism as an educational philosophy. In addition, each chapter includes "points to ponder" for personal reflection or classroom use.
Robert W. Pazmi o (EdD, Columbia University) is the Valeria Stone Professor of Christian Education at Andover Newton Theological School in Newton, Massachusetts, and a national consultant for the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning. His many works include God Our Teacher and By What Authority Do We Teach?
