Overview

The Christian Educator's Handbook on Adult Education represents one of the first comprehensive attempts by evangelicals to apply adult education theory to Christian education in general. In this book, contributors from across the evangelical spectrum present an accessible interpretation, application, and critique from a biblical perspective of the adult education model put forth by Malcolm Knowles. The result is a highly practical volume composed of applied, theoretical, and age-specific chapters that will appeal to those in ministry and higher education.

Topics include:

Biblical foundations for adult education
Cultural factors that affect education
Learning from gender differences
Small groups in adult education
Teaching young, middle, and older adults
Teaching single adults vs. family-oriented teaching
Adult Sunday school
Mentoring and discipling
and much more
