A joint publication by Driestar Christian University (DCU) and ACSI Europe. The new book consists of essential building blocks of Christian education, which challenge the readers to rethink and deepen their practice of teaching in their own situation.
The English version of The Essence of Christian Teaching has been available for quite some years now. A new edition is to be published in September 2018! The book was written by three authors who work at DCU: Bram de Muynck, Bram Kunz and Henk Vermeulen. DCU and ACSI Europe have noticed a growing interest in the book from several, international educational contexts. Through this book both organisations aim at inspiring and equipping people working in the field of education.
