Endorsements

The tension between faith and science is a long-standing one, captured by the apocryphal story of Catholic academics refusing to view the heavens through Galileo's telescope. The field of Christian education stands athwart the two, one foot firmly planted in Scripture, and the other in theories of learning, motivation, and personality. Estep and Kim provide thoroughly biblical perspectives in the synergism of theological and theoretical truth (revelation and creation) as they lead us to pursue practical, effective Christian formation in our homes, churches, and schools.
