Foundational text for Christian formation of children by well-known author,
priest and scholar
• Includes a Study Guide, by faith formation specialist Sharon Ely Pearson
Originally written in 1976, revised in 2000, and translated in six languages, this classic critique of Christian education is newly revised and expanded and includes Westerhoff's overview and perspective on the state of Christian education over the past forty years-
plus his role in that history.
According to Westerhoff, instead of guiding faith formation within the family, the church,
and the school, we relegate religious education to Sunday morning classes. There,
children learn the facts about religion, but how will they learn or experience faith? How can we nourish and nurture the faith of children, instead of only teaching the facts?
