 This book shares the secrets of secondary education with confirmation educators. In light of what we have learned through research about the brain and how children learn, it is time to apply that information 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. It is full of practical information that will help you change how you teach. If it isn't already, confirmation will be the highlight of your week.

 Available on as paperback and e-book.
