Issler and Habermas have written a work that all Christian educators should be acquainted with.... The sections on Purposes and the chapter on Human Nature are by themselves worth the reading of the book.... It will be cited and included in my reading lists and will help guide students toward helpful Christian treatments of educational psychology.--Eleanor Daniel, Religious Education
