Veteran children’s minister and Christian educator, Sharon Ely Pearson, has compiled an impressively comprehensive list of currently available children’s faith formation curricula into one easy-to-read chart. Succinctly describing each resource’s key characteristics and placing them side-by-side for ready comparison, Overview has done the preliminary research that ministry leaders might otherwise have to carry out on their own. Each entry includes the publisher or denominational connection, format, teacher support features, cost and more. Curriculum Overview would be of value to anyone tasked with choosing and using children’s faith formation curricula. While this chart is dated 2018, much of its content will remain useful beyond 2018.
