Dykstra on Christian Education

Christian education is that particular work which the church does to teach the historical, communal, difficult, countercultural practices of the church so that the church may learn to participate in them ever more fully and deeply. It is the dialogical process of teaching and learning through which the church comes to see, grasp and participate ever more deeply in the redemptive transformation of personal and social life that God is carrying out.
