About-

The tragedy of modern Christian education, the author believes, is that it has been influenced as much by secular philosophies as it has by the gospel. To have a solid basis for an educational program, the church must build upon its own faith--this is the main thrust of her thought.

Clearly and concisely, Henderlite lifts up for study some elements of Protestant theology which have been neglected in Christian education. As she examines these beliefs she indicates the effects that would be felt in the church if they were more strongly emphasized.

Using the Reformation phrase, "justification by faith," as the organizing principle behind her work, the author considers four basic theological problems: the nature of faith, human nature, Christian ehtics, and the meaning of history.
