KIRKUS REVIEW

Mildred Moody Eakin is one of the best known leaders in the field of religious education and her husband has the ability to make available to the reading public her skills, techniques and broad experiences through his editorial craftsmanship. Together they have produced several books of extreme value to those working in this field. This volume will be especially useful to the church school teacher who is interested in doing an intelligent piece of work in accordance with modern pedagogical principles and techniques. Mrs. Eakin is, of course, committed to the pupil-centered approach with emphasis upon life-situation teaching and projects. She would be the first to admit that this kind of teaching requires a higher degree of intelligence and training than just the transmittal of facts. This book should aid church school teachers to approach their task intelligently and imaginatively. It is crammed full of illustrative material drawn from Mrs. Eakin's own broad experience. Recommended for teachers and other leaders of religious education of the more liberal Protestant schools of thought.
