The Relationship of Theories of Intellectual Development to Christian Educators

From: Volume I, Issue 1: Fall 1980 Pages 69-73


Is there a relationship between the theories of intellectual development and the work of a Christian educator? Two author's work are briefly reviewed and they are Jean Piaget and William G. Perry, Jr. The implication for Christian educators will be explored in three areas: 1) salvation by faith, 2) methodology of Christian educators and, 3) commitment to Jesus Christ. It matters greatly how a person thinks and learns because commitment is based on a reasoned faith and God calls us to the highest commitment possible--loving obedience to the Lord of the universe.
