About-

Christian education is an essential component of church development and transformation. Due to the low level of Christian education among lay mission workers the growth of the Diocese of Yvangon was almost stagnant since 1877. Such low level of Christian education in the diocese is mainly due to the failure of the successive bishops in not training lay workers and lay leaders since the formation of the diocese. They may have worked hard for the mission but made very little provision for the development of lay ministry. Therefore, to move the diocese one step forward, all bishops and clergy need to understand the importance of training lay workers, catechists and the heads of all the lay departments.

Endorsements & Reviews-

In the history of the Church of the Province of Myanmar (CPM) there was no contribution towards the church like this book. So, it is an invaluable contribution not only for the CPM but also for other denominations. Furthermore, although it is deeply concentrated and explored on the condition of the Christian Education in the diocese of Yangon it also contained valuable historical facts for the whole province.
Archbishop Stephen Than Myint Oo, Primate,Archbishop
and Bishop of Yangon, in the Church of the Province of Myanmar

The twentieth century saw the demographic and cultural transformation of the Christian Church; yet we have far too few close studies of how churches actually operated on the ground.
This account of church developments in Myanmar, set in a wider historical context, is therefore especially welcome. Not the least of its many merits are the way it explores the realities behind ecclesiastical structures at local level, and its engaging portrait of a seminally important layman whose influence was immense but often hidden.
