The Appalachian Presbyterian: Some Rural-Urban Differences. A Preliminary Report.
Nelsen, Hart M.
Two hundred seventy-seven persons from rural, urban, and metropolitan areas of Appalachia were interviewed for the purpose of gathering background information influencing religious education programs. All those interviewed were members of Presbyterian churches. Information was obtained pertaining to family characteristics; attitudes toward education, welfare, and society; theological beliefs and church involvement; and attitudes toward Christian education and the church school program. It was concluded that significant differences existed by area of residence which would necessitate consideration of the locale when planning religious education programs and choosing types of materials to be used.
