Christian education needs a mindshift. Research demonstrates that Christian education has a positive impact on student outcomes like purpose-driven career choices, community-mindedness, and stronger religious affiliation and practice. While Christian education makes a difference, it's facing significant threats. This book shares insights from over 60 leading educators on how schools can provide a deeper and more authentic Christian education, share stories of love and hope with their neighbours, and catalyze the growth of the church and the Kingdom.
The volume challenges the Christian education industry with a radical- at the root- set on new ideas. In the last century Christian education chose largely to withdraw from the challenges posed by modernity. I suspect that a very strong dose of collective courage will be required to meet the fresh challenges of post-modernity. MindShift will build out courage. --Dr. Charles Phillips, Executive Director, The Christian Education Charitable Trust, The Robert L. and Kathrina H. Maclellan Foundation
The book tells the stories of schools that are creative and innovative- stories told by thought leaders in Christian education about schools that are fashioning sacred places to equip students to be college-ready, career-ready- and most importantly, Kingdom-ready. --Dr. Timothy Van Soelen, Executive Director, The Center for the Advancement of Christian Education
This book offers hopeful, illustrative, realistic pathways for reframing our practices and reviving our schools. More than merely inspire, MindShift gives traction to our hope. The bold stories from Christian teachers, learners, leaders, and schools from around the globe scratch the itch for schools that transform lives. if you hunger and thirst for more authenticity, better engagement, and deeper learning in our schools, read this book. MindShift rekindles the joy of our profession and, put into practice, will reawaken your school. --Dr. Gary B. Arnold, President, Council for American Private Education; President, Little Rock Christian Academy
