Title
Some Implications of the Self-Concept for Christian Education
Abstract

Factors involved in the development of the self-concept and some pertinent questions concerning the agreement between the secular and the Christian profile on the self-concept are discussed. The problems which an impaired self-concept poses for teaching certain theological concepts are raised. Areas of needed research, educational methodological possibilities, leadership training, challenges, and the role of conversion are discussed. Christian education is perceived as the confrontation of growing persons with Jesus Christ's demands to effect intentionally, through conversion, consistency between their value system and His - i.e., to develop a Christian life style through nurture and growth in Biblical principles of living and witnessing.
