Teaching for Spiritual Growth: by Perry G. Downs
Author: Perry G. Downs
|Teaching for Spiritual Growth deals with two important questions: 1) What does it mean to be spiritually mature ? and 2) What can the church do to help people grow spiritually? These questions are explored from the perspectives of theology, developmental psychology, and educational learning theory. |
The book integrates the three perspectives into a unified view of the teaching-learning process based on a biblical view of persons:
1. Theology: the divine side of spiritual growth. What does the nature of God tell us about teaching spiritual maturity?
2. Psychology: how God has designed people to grow. How does human development affect the process of achieving spiritual maturity?
3. Education: the learning process that produces spiritual growth. What is the process people go through to achieve spiritual maturity? The goal is to help readers develop a philosophy of Christian education that will be applicable to a variety of ministry contexts.
