This collection of essays endeavors to plot a course for making a connection between the content of a person's faith and the realities of his or her life through the educational ministry. It includes a short survey to assess existing approaches to Christian Ed. A 'living religion' is encouraged which includes transforming the world around us through social justice, inner spiritual growth and life-application of faith. Concrete examples are given to show how social transformation can be accomplished within the community.
