Joye informs and guides Christian education practice in this pragmatic text. She enforces the idea that the church can make responsible caring real in the educational process if it discerns and cultivates healthy relatedness, thus fostering genuine self-understanding, responsible attachment to significant persons and causes, and meaningful participation in a faith community. The author draws from the theological reflections of Daniel Day Williams, a process theologian whose understanding of love and relationship are integral to the book. His views are expanded with the psychological theories of psychoanalysts Carl Jung and Erik Erikson, and the educational concepts of John Westerhoff and Thomas Groome. From these concepts, proposals emerge for educational practice in the church.
