The Christian Educator's Handbook on Adult Education Summary

The Christian Educator's Handbook on Adult Education by Kenneth O. Gangel

How do adults learn? For nearly thirty years the general education field, influenced by the adult education model of Malcolm Knowles, has directed considerable attention toward answering this question. With The Christian Educator's Handbook on Adult Education, evangelicals join the discussion. The Christian Educator's Handbook on Adult Education represents one of the first comprehensive attempts by evangelicals to apply adult education theory to Christian education in general. In this book contributors from across the evangelical spectrum--practitioners and academics--present an accessible interpretation, application, and critique of Knowles' approach from a biblical perspective. The result is a highly practical volume composed of applied, theoretical, and age-specific chapters that will appeal to those in ministry and higher education. Also included is a chapter by Knowles, reflecting on his contributions to Christian adult education.
