Increasingly, adults do not see the church as a credible provider of quality religious education. This revision by R. Michael Harton of the classic work by Leon McKenzie addresses the foundational issues of what constitutes such an education for adults and how ministers and teachers can determine and understand the needs of learners. It also offers ways to involve learners in the planning and execution of their own religious education. A must-read for ministers and seminarians who care about the religious education of adults.
"The ecumenical team of McKenzie and Harton has produced an invaluable resource for those concerned with taking religious education beyond the catechism of children and youth and addressing the needs and involvement of adults. The Religious Education of Adults is as up to date as one can expect in this rapidly changing world and backs up a solid scholarly approach to the theology and philosophy of educating adults with models and suggestions for creative application."
