Book: Christian Education as evangelism Norma Everist (editor)

This book is a series of articles orientated around the fact that if congregations (and Lutheran schools) are serious about evangelism they also need to be serious about education, and if they are serious about education then they will be serious about sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Each chapter includes: the article, stories, questions for reflection and practical congregational strategies....
