The one book every parent, teacher, coach, and youth pastor should read. This landmark book paints a compelling-and sobering-picture of what could happen to our society if we don't change the way we relate to today's teens and young adults. Researched-based and solution-biased, it moves beyond sounding an alarm to outlining practical strategies to: * Guide "stuck" adolescents and at-risk boys to productive adulthood * Correct crippling parenting styles * Repair damage from (unintentional) lies we've told kids * Guide them toward real success instead of superficial "self-esteem" * Adopt education strategies that engage (instead of bore) an "i" generation * Pull youth out of their "digital" ghetto into the real world * Employ their strengths and work with their weaknesses on the job * Defuse a worldwide demographic time bomb * Equip Generation iY to lead us into the future

Adventure is extensively used as a teaching tool throughout the Bible. In God of Adventure Bruce Dunning proposes 19 principles from the Bible that outline the validity, core concepts and teaching approaches of Christian adventure learning. "Finally! A book has been written for adventure learning leaders that is grounded in Scripture. This well-researched and highly readable text will be a valuable resource for Christian educators desiring a stronger theological basis for their practice." -Ken Kalisch, Author of "The Role of the Instructor in the Outward Bound Educational Process," Associate Professor of Outdoor Education, Montreat College, Montreat, North Carolina "Adventure learning has long been with us but seldom understood or valued as the powerful tool for learning and personal transformation as this book so clearly shows it to be. Bruce Dunning has crafted a solid biblical treatise for adventure learning with great applications to ministry and personal life. It is valuable reading for any youth worker or Christian educator who is willing to go beyond the normative approaches to the teaching-learning paradigm in helping young people become all that God first created them to be." -John H. Wilkinson, Executive Director of Toronto YFC, Toronto, Ontario "I would buy this for the Appendix alone." -Stephen J. Cyphers, Outdoor Leadership Program, Colorado Christian University BRUCE DUNNING has been involved in Christian camping every year of his life and has worked full-time at Medeba Adventure Learning Centre since 1980. Medeba is located in West Guilford, Ontario, Canada and specializes in Christian adventure learning. Its mission is to use adventure and community to challenge young people to continually say "yes" to God. Bruce also has extensive experience within the world-wide Christian camping movement. www.GodofAdventure.com

Noted Christian education professor and theorist Robert W. Pazmino shares the theological essentials to guide faithful educational thought and practices in the third millennium. He explores a prepositional theology that deepens the relationships between God and us through our teaching and learning together with spiritual wisdom. ""Here is a book that can be read for many purposes: as a substantial review of the calling of education in the mission of the church, as a challenging text on the theological foundations of Christian education, and as a stretching exercise for those who are serious about the educational and missional aspects of ministry."" --Ted Ward, Michigan State University and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, emeritus ""A refreshing and wise look at the teaching ministry of the church. Pazmino has done well at grounding his reflection in a winsome and irenic historic orthodoxy."" --Jim Wilhoit, Wheaton College ""God Our Teacher explores the important roles of the Trinity in teaching ministries. Pazmino serves the reader well in his call for balancing unity and diversity and engaging the world in a holistic ministry of teaching."" --Cathy Stonehouse, Asbury Theological Seminary ""This book presents a balanced view that is continually framed by biblical boundaries and demonstrates Pazmino's encyclopedic grasp of the resources that have stimulated his thinking."" --Julie Gorman, Fuller Theological Seminary ""God Our Teacher is a carefully crafted, robust, and theologically grounded vision for Christian education. A worthwhile read for anyone committed to the teaching ministry of the church."" --Robert Drovdahl, Seattle Pacific University ""God Our Teacher is different from typical books on teaching and learning in that it begins with Scripture and presents a theologically informed perspective for Christian education."" --Dennis E. Williams, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ""No contemporary educator more creatively develops teaching metaphors or is better able to design theologically strong models for Christian education than Robert Pazmino."" --Marlene LeFever, author of Creative Teaching Methods and Learning Styles Robert W. Pazmino is Valeria Stone Professor of Christian Education at Andover Newton Theological School in Newton Centre, Massachusetts, where he has taught since 1986. He has also taught at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and other theological schools across the United States. He is the author of several books, including Foundational Issues in Christian Education (2008), So What Makes Our Teaching Christian? (2008), Doing Theological Research (2009), and A Boy Grows in Brooklyn (2014). He serves as a national consultant for the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion.

Kids & Parents Need Trustworthy Guides

Raising children to know, love and follow Jesus has always been a challenge—even before child-sized tablets, video games and YouTube were in the picture! Today, there are more demands on kids’ and parents’ time, children are exposed to sensitive topics much sooner, and parents are forced to find new ways to pass down biblical thinking in a world that often opposes Christian values.

To better understand the dynamics shaping childhood faith formation today, we were commissioned by OneHope to study Christian parents' deepest pain points, greatest concerns and dearest hopes for their children.

The result is an 80-page report filled with findings to help ministry leaders and parents partner in faith formation, all with the goal of teaching children to:

  • Engage with the Bible (which correlates with a host of benefits)
  • Navigate technology and the independence it brings
  • Follow Jesus in a resilient way

If you recognize the importance of equipping children with the tools they’ll need to mature in faith, this report contains data and insights you can use to minister more intentionally to kids and better support their Christian parents.

Included in the Church Kit:

  • Print copy of the report of the full color report
  • Digital copy of the report (can be shared with up to 10 users)
  • Presenter Slides that you can use to share these findings with your team or congregation
  • 4 application guides (Top 10 Tips for Parents and Churches, 10 Facts Every Parent Should Know, 8 Questions Every Children's Minster Should Ask Themselves, Infographic of the major findings from the study) - digital
  • Video interview with author and children's minister Michelle Anthony offering practical solutions for engaging parents and children

Format: Paperback, digital. Full color, infographics, 80 pages.

    If you were a warrior you'd have a sharp, shiny sword and an army of soldiers to fight with. There might be a giant to attack, or a throng of enemy soldiers to defeat. But is that all there is to being a warrior? And what does it mean to be a Bible Warrior?

    Abraham, David, Moses, Joshua, Gideon and Jehoshaphat are all men from the Bible who fought in real life battles, but the lessons we learn from their lives are not about sword skills or battle tactics, they are about honouring God and glorifying him. We learn about how God wants us to fight evil, to stand up for the truth and to trust in him to be our Lord and Leader, Defender and the Victor.

    There are other people in this book who didn't fight with a sword, yet they still fought the good fight. They fought with words - good words. They fought against evil by telling the true message of how Jesus died to save sinners. You can learn from them and be like them too. But most of all you can learn to be like Jesus - the one who fought sin and won, who fought satan and won and who fought death and won!

    Get ready to fight!

    No one fully understands how learning works, but educational psychologists understand a great deal about what works.

    The collaborative team of Klaus Issler and Ronald Habermas has assembled an integration of theology and instructional theory in Teaching for Reconciliation: Foundations and Practice of Christian Educational Ministry. Now they expound on one aspect of educational theory/theology to help teachers choose the method that best reaches particular learners in a specific learning situation.

    How We Learn demystifies the principles of educational psychology. The book identifies:

    --means and barriers in learning

    --motivational factors that make learners receptive

    --learning's outcome in attitudes, spirituality, and behavior

    Application sections, special exercises and examples, plus dozens of figures and tables aid understanding of learning effectiveness, age-related development, individual learning style, special education, and other issues.
