Fears, Barbara A. – Religious Education, 2019
To be colorblind suggests a race-neutral perspective whereby no theological anthropological meaning is attached to one's physical embodiment.

Willhauck, Susan – Religious Education, 2013
It is crucial to recover the practice of seeking and refining ways to speak of faith.

James Estep's integration of Vygotsky's work on the Zone of Proximal Development into Christian education and pedagogy falls short of a distinctly evangelical form of integration.
