Perspectives on Children's Spiritual Formation: Four Viewsby Michael J. Anthony
Synopses & Reviews
Perspectives on Childrens Spiritual Formation presents in counterpoint form four views of childrens spiritual formation and four related methods of Christian Education. Each chapter is written by a prominent person(s) representing his or her view. Contributors also respond to the other viewpoints. Views include the contemplative-reflective model (cultivating a quiet, worshipful spirit), instructional-analytic model (involving child evangelism and Bible memorization), pragmatic participatory model (focusing on high-energy activities, often seen in mega-churches), and the media-driven active-engagement model (using a video-based curriculum with limited teacher training).
Church scholars, from varying denominational backgrounds, discuss four, basic, common beliefs about childrens spiritual formation with the goal of determining which is most scripturally sound.
