This book is such a find for those interested in Christian Education, that it will be a shame if non-Wesleyan public miss out on this book. The large compendium of articles cover so many relevant parts of Scripture that I feel evangelicals in general will appreciate this book for its depth of insight and breadth of coverage of all topics pertaining to Christian Education. The many different contributors ensure that the book does not become too orientated to any one particular slant or opinion. Aukerman does a credible job of putting all together.
For an introductory text, this book is clear and explains itself well enough for the first year student of Christian Education. For more advanced readers, this book serves as a useful reference for teaching and for being reminded about Christianity and discipleship. For the general evangelical reader, there is no need to be worried about the 'Holiness movement' aspect of this book. It is fairly presented, and aims to present the basics of a Christian Education curriculum. --Conrade Yap, NetGalley 9/22/2011
