Principles and Practices of Christian Education shows teachers how they can use two important principles that stand behind all evangelical practices to make their education program stand out from all the others in its nurture of students.

Second, evangelical Christian education strives for connection-making contact with people as unique individuals who live in a particular society and who need to know more about scripture. In this book Christian education students learn that the work for which they prepare is a partnership with God to transform people. Their central task is worship, but through it and other activities they lead others to faith, commitment, and transformation of communities.As a result, persons do not consider how they are needed by others and in a sense by God. ... obligations, the fulfillment of which satisfies the deepest longings of the human heart to be needed and satisfied through service to God and others.
