Guest Editorial: Special Focus Topic: Curriculum Issues in Christian Education

From: Volume 12, Issue 2: Fall 2015, Curriculum Issues in Christian Education Pages 372-374


The Christian Education Journal’s (CEJ) special focus for fall 2015 highlights current scholarship concerning “Curriculum Issues in Christian Education.” The apparent ongoing need to address this topic fully remains ominous. The topic is varied in width, depth, and context, as is the work of Christian educators in ministry. Few, if any, current books, textbooks, and articles address curriculum topics, as there continues to be a void in the research and practice surrounding curriculum issues. What has been written is dated, though it is still being referenced foundationally, biblically, and theologically, as well as practically, in the field. However, there are online discussions, newsletters, and blogs for practitioners networking in the field. Thus, this is a relevant topic for the Christian Educator Journal, as it has been about 20 years since CEJ has used this topic as a special focus theme. The five pieces of scholarship that have been highlighted in this edition are evidence of the breadth of this topic, which is global in nature for Christian educators in the 21st century.
