Christian Formation: Tweaking the Paradigm

From: Volume 4, Issue 2: Fall 2007, Children's Spirituality Pages 352-363


In the field of Christian education, deferred conceptual maintenance has resulted in fragmentation and enervation. This article considers some of the limitations in the Christian education movement, the recent popularity of spiritual formation as a way forward, and suggestions for a comprehensive approach under the banner of Christian formation which might invigorate and give a basis for integrating educational ministries. Earlier version of this were published in Covenant Quarterly 59, no. 4 (2001): 27-38 and given in a NAPCE workshop.
