Mary Boys offers a new way of thinking about what it means to educate religiously. Utilizing the method of map-making to broaden the context of American religious education, Boys defines a process that incorporates each instructor's own experiences, perspectives, and analytical insights to develop more compelling teaching methods.
By placing both Protestant and Catholic religious education in both a historical and conceptual framework, Boys establishes a theological and educational basis for providing answers to central questions: What does it mean to educate in faith? What is the teacher's role? How much emphasis should be given to psychology, anthropology, and sociology? Toward what view of society is a theory of religious education oriented?
No one maps out where we've been, where we are and where we're going more clearly than Boys does here. . . . [She] demonstrates how a real master in the field keeps the transforming power of the tradition alive for the sake of a new future. -- Craig Dykstra
In the course of dealing with the history, methods, and possibilities of Christian education, [Boys] has actually given us a compendium of the main issues and trends across the whole theological spectrum. Anyone who wants to know how we have gotten to where we are today and -- more important still -- how we move ahead in the life of faith, will find this book essential reading. In its blending of graceful style and copious scholarship it sets a model. -- Robert McAfee Brown
