KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a book for religious educators and for parents seriously interested in the religious murture of their children in this modern age. It embodies the modern and liberal approach to Christian education and while much of the material is drawn from the author's experience in the educational program of the Episcopal Church it will be almost as helpful to these of other denominations. The volume deals with the need of a more adequate program of religious education, with the various stages of the growing process in childhood and with the way in which the religious educational approach must be adapted to each. Special problems such as prayer, disbelief, and death, are dealt with. Then fundamental questions pertaining to church schools and week-day religious education are discussed, as are the use of the Bible, art, poetry and books in religious education. Specific and detailed suggestions for programs and curricula are included. This is a valuable book.
