Prepared by the Episcopal Church, this booklet describes programs of adult Christian Education in other Christian Churches as well as those of the Episcopal Church; they show a diversity in approach, execution, and long range results. The three chapters cover Religion and Life, the Church in the World, and Understanding the Christian Heritage. Among the action programs described were a "give-away" library in Union Gap, Washington; a business centered ministry on Wall Street; a teacher training program in Youngstown, Ohio; and FISH, a "good neighbor" mission in West Springfield, Massachusetts; coffeehouses, play reading and discussion, forums, and sermon dialogues.
