Weaving together insights from the Scriptures and psychology, the author offers an informative and useful guide to dynamic Christian living. He examines the unique contributions various New Testament writers present on discipleship and then analyzes and critiques several theories from psychology that bear on Christian development. In addition, he probes the role of faith, the church, the family, and the Holy Spirit in the sanctification process. The author then applies these truths to the practice of Christian education. He discusses the crucial components of learning--the student, the teacher, aims, curriculum, and setting--and shows how each contributes to a growing and vibrant faith.
