Summary

EDUCATION THAT IS CHRISTIAN LOIS E. LeBAR Is there a distinctive Christian system of education? Lois LeBar shows that there is such a system, and she defines it clearly. "The foundations and the orientation of Christian education are distinctive if they are truly Christian," she says. "Every area of life that the Word of God enters is changed." Her aim in this book is to help teachers discover the distinctive Christian system of education and to help Christians produce literature and visual aids from a Scriptural viewpoint. In order to reach Scriptural conclusions, the reader is led through the process of studying the methods of the Teacher "come from God," the Old Testament wilderness school, the emphases of Paul's major sermons in Acts and of his epistles, the example of the life of David. From these sources is derived the nature of the teaching-learning process, the relation of authority and creativity, the relation of the human and Divine teachers, and the implementation of these principles in structuring curriculum units and lessons. Dr. LeBar emphasizes that intimate personal experience in the Lord should go together with Biblical facts and doctrine. Here is a book so overflowing with spiritual reality and power that it cannot help but bring new light and a life of transformed service to everyone who reads it. LOIS E. LeBAR has been teaching Christian Education at Wheaton College since 1949, and she is now also director of the graduate program of Christian Education at Wheaton. She has had training in elementary and Christian education, and she has the B.A. degree in psychology from Roosevelt College, M.A. in Christian Education from Wheaton College, and the Ph.D. in religious education from New York University. She is author also of Children in the Bible School. CHILDREN IN THE BIBLE SCHOOL The HOW of Christian Education LOIS E.
