The Art of Teaching Confirmation

This book shares the secrets of secondary education with confirmation educators -- both lay and clergy. Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” In light of what we have learned through research about how children learn, and educational policy and practice it is time now to do better by taking that information and applying it to confirmation.

By changing just a few things about how they teach, confirmation educators can bring about a more significant understanding of the Bible and their faith for adolescents and with the help of the Spirit, a more meaningful personal relationship with God and His Son, Jesus Christ. The purpose of this book is to provide insight as to how to help adolescents interact with the information in a more meaningful way at their developmental level.
