Praise for the Print Edition
This book is big and it's daunting; but if you appreciate quality reference tools, get it. It contains over 850 articles relating to Christian Education—everything from glue sticks and cotton balls to articles on postmodernism, peer pressure, philosophy, eating disorders, and youth ministry.
The book is just what is says it is, and everyone involved with Christian education will want to have an accessible copy of this compilation, a part of a reference series Baker has put out. It is a huge catalog of people, places, events, and organizations in the field.

[This] dictionary, scholarly but readable, has 850 alphabetically arranged articles on various topics relevant to the broad discipline of Christian education. . . . This dictionary is primarily intended for seminary students and leaders of evangelical churches. Recommended for general readers and theological libraries.
Congratulations to Michael Anthony and his team for putting together such a comprehensive tool for the discipline of Christian education. It was about time that a new dictionary of Christian education, especially one from an evangelical perspective, was introduced into the market. . . . I would recommend this book as a valuable resource for students of Christian education.
