The conversation about education recorded in "Anabaptist Ways of Knowing" grows out of a concern that practices which shaped faith communities in the past are rapidly being discarded and replaced in a haphazard, unexamined way. Shenk contends that by revitalizing core practices and the powerful substratum of knowledge they provide, educational endeavors can renew the wellspring of community life.

Here is a resource for any who care about the recovery of faith-based educational practices that are part of a church-school-family ecology. Shenk’s aim is to present a strong rationale for tradition-based, critical education that incorporates core practices for strengthening faith communities into its theorizng. The book offers a viable proposal for the Anabaptist-Mennonite faith community often featured in the discussion. And it serves as a model for reflecting on educational theory from any particular Christian tradition.
