People of faith often depend on their religious convictions to help them through troubling times.
In her new book, Rekindling the Flame of Christian Education, D ‘Judy’ Williams offers a way for Christians to strengthen their convictions by learning more about their faith.
The book is a comprehensive resource for Christian educators, takes readers on a journey from the zenith of Christian education through its demise.
She unveils major historical events that influenced the biblical principals of education during the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Reformation and Enlightenment. At the same time, she ignites educators’ imaginations by exploring new possibilities for the future of religious education.
By revealing startling facts relating to curriculum changes over the years, Williams addresses what she feels is a significant decline in biblical content in Christian classes. Williams says that the Christian Church ‘has lost its control and management of over the world of education,’ and she challenges teachers to join a movement of enlightenment in the 21st Century to improve the quality of their curriculum.
According to Pastor Al Ebanks of the Agape Family Worship Centre, ‘This book identifies key movers and shakers in the advancement of Christian education, speaks to current problems and their roots and offers practical suggestions on how we can rekindle the flame of Christian education in our generation.’
Williams received theological diplomas from the International Seminary in Plymouth, Fla., and has a degree in religious education from Christian Bible College in Rocky Mount, N.C.
She is the founder of Maranatha Resource and Training Center on the Cayman Islands and is a supervisor and lecturer for an off-campus satellite class of the International Seminary. Her goal is to see the establishment of a Christian college in the Cayman Islands that offers training in all levels of education.
