Christianity regards teaching as one of the most foundational and critically sustaining ministries of the Church. As a result, Christian education remains one of the largest and oldest continuously functioning educational systems in the world, comprising both formal day schools and higher education institutions as well as informal church study groups and parachurch ministries in more than 140 countries. In The Encyclopedia of Christian Education, contributors explore the many facets of Christian education in terms of its impact on curriculum, literacy, teacher training, outcomes, and professional standards. This encyclopedia is the first reference work devoted exclusively to chronicling the unique history of Christian education across the globe, illustrating how Christian educators pioneered such educational institutions and reforms as universal literacy, home schooling, Sunday schools, women's education, graded schools, compulsory education of the deaf and blind, and kindergarten. With an editorial advisory board of more than 30 distinguished scholars and five consulting editors, The Encyclopedia of Christian Education contains more than 1,200 entries by 400 contributors from 75 countries. These volumes covers a vast range of topics from Christian education: *History spanning from the church's founding through the Middle Ages to the modern day *Denominational and institutional profiles *Intellectual traditions in Christian education *Biblical and theological frameworks, curricula, missions, adolescent and higher education, theological training, and Christian pedagogy *Biographies of distinguished Christian educators This work is ideal for scholars of both the history of Christianity and education, as well as researchers and students of contemporary Christianity and modern religious education.

Review:

It has been some 25 years since the Harper Encyclopedia of Religious Education was published. This new survey assumes the pluralism, diversity, and global awareness in the field, which allows it to focus on Christian education without confusion or defensiveness. I expect the Encyclopedia of Christian Education, abled edited by Kurian and Lamport, to serve our profession well for at least the next quarter of a century.--Jerome W. Berryman, Episcopal priest and founder of the classic movement Godly Play

Encyclopedia of Christian Education is one of the most important publications of our time. Covering virtually every aspect of Christian education over 2000 years, this exciting resource is a must have for scholars, practitioners, church leaders, and anyone interested in exploring a myriad of historical and contemporary themes in Christian education.--Yolanda Y. Smith, research scholar and lecturer in Christian education, Yale Divinity School, and author of Reclaiming the Spirituals: New Possibilities for African American Christian Education

With its breathtaking histories and lively biographies of key figures in the field of Christian education, all written by renowned experts in the field, the Encyclopedia of Christian Education offers a definitive and indispensable resource for Christian educators everywhere.--Henry L. Carrigan, assistant director and senior editor at Northwestern University Press, and co-author of Three Testaments

A unique resource, opening up the rich heritage of Christian educational ministries for scholars and practitioners alike. The Encyclopedia of Christian Education is sure to stimulate creative approaches to ministry in our 21st century schools and churches.--Larry Richards, distinguished Christian educator, author of Christian Education: Seeking to be Like Jesus and Creative Bible Teaching

The Encyclopedia of Christian Education is a visionary work with an impressive list of contributors who are well known scholars, professors and Christian educators. The inspired and meticulous planning of the editors, George Thomas Kurian and Mark A. Lamport has ensured a depth and breadth of content which covers the history, the development and the influence of Christian Education across the world. As such, in a contemporary world that is characterized by global and plural dimensions, this volume is a significant addition to the literature on Christian Education.--Marian de Souza, senior lecturer of religious education at Australian Catholic University, Watson; coeditor, Global Perspectives on Spirituality and Education (2014), and editor, Journal of Religious Education (2006-2012)

The Encyclopedia of Christian Education is more than an outstanding resource and reference for religious and general educators; its editors project an expansive, comprehensive, and robust vision of Christian education that will inform, challenge, and inspire scholars, teachers, and educational leaders for a very long time.--Charles R. Foster, professor of religion and education, emeritus, Candler School of Theology, Emory University; author of From Generation to Generation: The Adaptive Challenge of Mainline Protestant Education in Forming Faith

The centrality of Christian teaching to Christian ministry, like the significance of Christian learning as an expression of Christian spirituality and vocation, is not sufficiently recognized by the Christian Churches. This impressive collection of original articles provides a major resource that will help both scholars and more general readers to discover the riches that lie within this field.--Jeff Astley, honorary professor in the department of theology and religion at Durham University, was Director of the North of England Institute for Christian Education, and author of The Philosophy of Christian Religious Education and Ordinary Theology

Christian education, done well, fosters Christian truth being embodied in attitudes that lead to personal and social transformation. The unique contribution of the Encyclopedia of Christian Education is to tell the global story of a diverse movement that has not only shaped our world but continues to do so in dynamic ways today. A wonderful and fascinating resource.--Patrick Mitchell, director of studies, Irish Bible Institute, Dublin; author of Evangelicalism and National Identity in Ulster 1921-98 (2003)

The notion of Christian Education has long deserved authoritative treatment as a developed and established body of knowledge, rightly positioned alongside other fields of theology and pedagogy. This Encyclopedia fulfills that crucial function by bringing together leading scholars, writing within a well-considered and clearly organized structure. Kurian and Lamport are to be congratulated on their monumental achievement.--Leslie J Francis, professor of religions and education, University of Warwick, England, and canon theologian, Bangor Cathedral, Wales

Nothing the Church does is more important than educating in faith - it's lifeblood. Written and compiled by leading scholars, The Encyclopedia of Christian Education brings together the best wisdom of the ages to enhance the scholarly foundations and pastoral praxis of this vital ministry. It will be an invaluable resource and reference for all Christian educators - scholars and practitioners alike.--Thomas Groome, professor of theology and religious education and chair of the Department of Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry, Boston College; author of Will There Be Faith: A New Vision for Educating Disciples
