|12 Affirmations 2.0|
A revision of the original 12 Affirmations by Steven Vryhof, is now available -
12 Affirmations 2.0: Christian Schooling for a Changing World.
The goal of the book is to "provide fresh language to a new generation, asking it to consider again the importance and the power
of...Christian schooling. ...The hope is that the book will again spark discussions that energize and improve Christian schools, that bring changes that
start closing gaps between the ideal and the reality, and that make these institutions strong and effective and sustainable."
12 Affirmations 2.0 is a very accessible book. Each affirmation, a paragraph long, is followed by an exposition of the affirmation (1-2 pages), and three
questions to guide discussions. The affirmations are grouped into 3 categories - Foundational Affirmations, Educational Affirmations, and
12 Affirmations 2.0 can be used with many audiences including:
Discussions of Christian education at the board level
Engaging parents in understanding the goals of Christian schooling
Orienting new teachers
Reinvigorating current staff
Engaging upper level high schools students in discussions about the goal of Christian education
And more - limited only by your imagination
