Dr. Robert K. Bower of Fuller Theological Seminary points out that church growth is intimately related to the ministry of education (see the article on the opposite page). CHRISTIANITY TODAY, in more than seven years of publication, has endeavored to publish frequent articles on various aspects of Christian education. This issue includes, in addition to Dr. Bower’s article, a forthright debate on the propriety of federal aid to Christian education (page 8). The article by Dr. McKenna (page 13) traces the significance of modern trends for Christian colleges. Our lead editorial (page 24) says that the influence of the evangelical minority in education is too often underrated.
