Product Description

Christian religious education provides the content, processes, and settings to empower the church's mission in the world-a mission that includes health care, peace with justice, and disciple-making ministries. Today, the field Christian Education is clear about its tasks of helping form and nurture faith that is then embodied in faithful practices. Research studies on Christian faith practices show how participating in Christian community undergirds and complements thoughtful living through one's life.

With an emphasis on practices and mission, this book offers readers concrete ways to empower vital faith formation in congregations as it describes current trends, which include richer diversity, entrepreneurial spirit, and interfaith dialog. This book will also help prepare students for leadership in the Church universal and in the field of Christian Education.

Publisher's Description

Christian religious education provides the content, processes, and settings to empower the church’s mission in the world—a mission that includes health care, peace with justice, and disciple-making ministries. Today, the field Christian Education is clear about its tasks of helping form and nurture faith that is then embodied in faithful practices. Research studies on Christian faith practices show how participating in Christian community undergirds and complements thoughtful living through one’s life.

With an emphasis on practices and mission, this book offers readers concrete ways to empower vital faith formation in congregations as it describes current trends, which include richer diversity, entrepreneurial spirit, and interfaith dialog. This book will also help prepare students for leadership in the Church universal and in the field of Christian Education.

"Teaching the Way of Jesus is an important and eminently useful contribution to the field of Christian religious education by a practical scholar whose faithful leadership and hope-filled call for change will inspire all stakeholders in Christian religious education to 'face into the world, to follow the realm of God, and to work with all our energy for a world where God’s hopes and God’s renewals are possible.'" (182). –Ryan S. Gardner, Brigham Young University–Idaho

Endorsements

"Teaching the Way of Jesus practices what it preaches, seamlessly combining intellectual rigor with story, systematic educational methodology, and clear practical guidelines for a way of living. It is an invaluable resource for Christian educators and a worthy addition to the personal library of educators of any faith. As a Jewish reader, I was interested to meet this idealistic, imperfect, human Jesus and follow his travels and his personal development amongst his people, who were searching for strength and meaning. Jack Seymour is deeply Christian but his writing radiates with love for other faith communities." -Deborah Court, Bar-Ilan University, Israel

Jack Seymour's Teaching the Way of Jesus is a capstone work from a senior scholar in Christian religious education. He brings us back to Jesus' invitation-- the greatest ever offered-- of "come follow me," and reminds that the practices of Christian faith are not only the results but the source of discipleship. It will empower the most effective way to educate Christians -- get them to do Christian things. -Thomas Groome, Professor of Theology and Religious Education, Boston College

Jack Seymour offers us provocative insight on teaching the Christian faith. He extends to us a practical theological invitation to teach the "way of Jesus" so that we, young and old, will join the Jesus Movement in our private piety as well as public practices. -Evelyn L. Parker, Professor of Practical Theology Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas
