More Description

TO SET ONE'S HEART offers pastors, Christian educators, and concerned laypersons valuable counsel and aid in making decisions about teaching in the community of faith.

The church needs to respond to people's need for belief. TO SET ONE'S HEART demonstrates how to use an intentional teaching ministry to fulfill this need.

Sara Little uses belief formation as an organizing center for the church's teaching ministry. She offers five detailed models of teaching expressed in terms of how each contributes to the development of faith: information-processing

group interaction

indirect communication

personal development


Each model includes concrete examples of how the method might be used in a church's educational program to further belief development.

TO SET ONE'S HEART provides both theory and practice, combining the insights of theology, education, and socialization. The result: an in depth examination of religious belief, teaching, and intentionality.

Sara Little eloquently expresses her staunch advocacy of the kind of teaching that enables one to say, "I set my heart, I believe."
