Susan Hunt's plea for improved theological education of all God's children is a timely challenge. She shows how the entire church must be involved--parents, Bible school teachers, and church staff--and provides practical ideas to stimulate thought. I commend her work highly. --James M. Boice, Pastor, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, PA

Susan Hunt takes the redemptive message integrated in all Scripture from the academic's desk to the elementary classroom, kitchen table, and child's bedside. It's biblical theology for all of life! --Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary

True Christian education offers far more than secular education methods sprinkled with Bible stories. It teaches people of every age to think and live Christianly. And it makes teachers of us all. Whether you're a parent or grandparent, a Sunday school or Christian school teacher, or a youth leader or pastor, you are responsible to help develop the community of believers into a unified, vibrant fellowship; to draw families together in committed relationships that extend beyond generational lines; and to live out God's covenant with His people in a way that makes authentic Christianity come alive.

This practical plan for integrating Christian education into all of life shows what happens when, day by day, week by week, generation by generation, the church leads its people into the privileges and responsibilities of covenant living. Regardless of your role in God's Kingdom, Heirs of the Covenant will motivate you to leave a legacy of faith for the next generation--and to live for Christ today in your home, church, and community.
