9780804214421: To Set One's Heart: Belief and Teaching in the Church

This book uses belief information as an organizing center for the church's teaching ministry. It offers five detailed models of teaching expressed in terms of how each contributes to the development of faith: information-processing, group interaction, indirect communication, personal development, and action/reflection. Each model includes concrete examples of how the method might be used in a church's educational program to further belief development. To Set One's Heart provides both theory and practice, combining the insights of theology, education, and socialization. The result: an in depth examination of religious belief, teaching, and intentionality.
