Product Description

For almost twenty years, Foundational Issues in Christian Education has been a key text for many Christian education courses. Its perceptive analysis coupled with clear writing make it a resource without peer.

In the book, Christian education expert Robert Pazmiqo guides readers through a comprehensive discussion of the interdisciplinary foundations of Christian education, calling all Christian educators to reevaluate the fundamentals of their discipline. "A careful exploration of foundations," writes Pazmiqo, "is essential before specifying principles and guidelines for practice."

This updated edition includes interactions with professional developments over the past ten years and appendixes that assess the impact of postmodernism as an educational philosophy. In addition, each chapter includes "points to ponder" for personal reflection or classroom use.

Robert W. Pazmiqo (Ed.D., Columbia University) is the Valeria Stone Professor of Christian Education at Andover Newton Theological School in Newton, Massachusetts. His many works include God Our Teacher and By What Authority Do We Teach? He is also a national consultant for the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning.

    Christian education encompasses more than traditional teaching based on historical practices, sociological and psychological theories. It incorporates Biblical and theological truths with educational philosophical ideals. The foundation for such education is based on the fact that all people are created in the image of God, but due to the Fall have been separated from the Creator God, and that everyone in faith can be reconciled to God through the redeeming power of Christ's death on the cross (70).

    The main goal of the Christian education is "passing on the commandments of God to the next generation" (20). The task is to incorporate students into the Christian community by loving others, building and sharing one's faith, worshipping God, and actively participating in ministry (45). In compiling a thorough book, Pazmino examines the contributions of educational, sociological, and psychological theorists. Utilizing the insights of people such as Cremin, Pazmino suggests that Christian educators should "carefully assess" the effects of secular educational institutions on their students, and to offer ways for people to share their knowledge with others (149). Christian education should incorporate ideals such as liberty, equality, and fraternity by reframing it in Christian terms. For instance, Pazmino redefines liberty as "the freedom made available in Jesus Christ," and fraternity as "the common humanity of all persons and the unique relationships that exist in Christian community" (151).

    Pazmino reminds readers that the acquisition of knowledge occurs through all modes-communities, institutions, and groups (175). However, ultimate knowledge is "transcended by being known by God and encountering God's love" (177). Though the book contains good information regarding education, too much emphasis is given to the various theories. Pazmino dedicates a couple pages to discuss an "interactive Christian model," but it would be better if he dedicated a whole chapter to this topic. The main educational topic of the book is true to its title-"foundational issues."
