The Public Church as a Model for Religious Education.
O'Brien, Maureen R.
Religious Education, v88 n3 p394-414 Sum 1993
Asserts that efforts by Christian churches to join in humanitarian community efforts are hindered by diversity and reluctance to participate in public engagement. Maintains that a "public church" is necessary in society today. Contends that there are two main tasks: (1) education of disciple-citizens; and (2) education of the public. (CFR)
