This review is from: Fashion Me A People: Curriculum In The Church (Paperback)
Fashioning is challenging. It is awakening. And it is a life-long process to education. Fashion Me a People is for the church community that is willing to explore what education can truly be for itself and for the greater community and world.
This book presents a thoughtful educational plan for our church community, recognizing our churches offer different strengths and each have the need to develop their shortcomings. As a part of a community, one body in Christ, striving to do the work to which we are called, how do we become a community of communities, a worshipping community, a teaching community, a proclaiming community and a community of service?
Each of these areas of education and service is described in Ms. Harris' book. In her description of these five different forms we are inspired to see the possibilities within our church community. There are thoughtful and challenging questions and engaging activities included to assist in further practicing and implementing the themes of each chapter.
This is a valuable resource to have AND to use.

This review is from: Fashion Me A People: Curriculum In The Church (Paperback)
This book provides an especially excellent overview of the differnet concepts of curricula, including a history of different definitions and the recent history of the broadening concept of what it is. Harris' vision of teaching encompasses a wide scope of the church. She helps you to see curricula for education not just in books, but in people, worship, group interaction, meetings, and in fact, any aspect of church life. She identifies the present state of education in the church as an in between time, on the edge of a new, holistic view of education in the Church.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good General Introduction, July 5 2003

This review is from: Fashion Me A People: Curriculum In The Church (Paperback)
This book shows is a good general introduction to the idea of Church Curriculum. What is most interesting is that her best chapters are about non-traditional ways of looking at how the church teaches. For example, teaching in worship, service and other areas.
However, this book is highly dependent on Thomas Groome's Christian Religious Education. So I would see this book as a a first step in order to understand and better appreciate his book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaching the Bible to Adults and Youth, May 17 2000
By 
Rev. Donna Morley (West Mansfield,, OH USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Fashion Me A People: Curriculum In The Church (Paperback)
Dick Murray's book, Teaching tthe Bible to Adults and Youth, presents a wide expanse of ideas and possibilities in Bible study. In this book, an educator should find an array of scenarios to open the Bible up to people. His comments on how Biblically illiterate adults and youth have become in our society are right on. He further commented on how we learn the Bible in seminary (limited as it may be), but we learn to teach from teachers.

4.0 out of 5 stars All curriculum, all the time!, May 17 2000
By 
Rev. Donna Morley (West Mansfield,, OH USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Fashion Me A People: Curriculum In The Church (Paperback)
Calls for one to look at curriculum in a whole new light. Curriculum is more than the printed page. The entire experience of 'Church' in Harris' view is curriculum. She includes a discussion of the multiple meanings of curriculum and curricular challenges.
