Onward to the '80s

From: Volume II, Issue 2: Spring 1982 Pages 25-28


Christian education in the 1980's must meet the challenges of Alvin Toffler's "Future Shock" generation. The need is not for new promotional gimmicks, but for a more mature approach. The writer makes two proposals: (1) Return to the principles of Christian nurture enunciated by Horace Bushnell more than 125 years ago; (2) Redefine "faith" in which we are to nurture pupils in a thoroughly Tillichian sense. With such an approach, Christian education can face the "future shock" generation unafraid.
