  1. Personal Interaction: The Missing Ingredient in Christian Education

    Fall 1982 — Pages 47-50

    Although no hard evidence is available, a recent Gallup Poll and a brief study by the author give indication that educational programs in evangelical churches are ineffective in teaching Bible content and in influencing the behavior of students. Fads in Christian education are indication that church leaders sense this ineffectiveness. Secular studies in sociology reveal the importance of interpersonal influence on both content acquisition and behavior in individuals. It is suggested that the ineffectiveness of church educational programs lies in a failure to understand and respond to the dynamics of interpersonal influence.
