Green states, "As we enter the twenty-first century, the powerful current of postmodernism is sweeping Western thought. Postmodernism not only denies absolute truth and value but now undermines confidence in the independent existence of human personality itself p. Greene is emphatic in the idea that to be Christian, is to be a philosopher. He says, "The New Testament is no less emphatic that Christians are to seek and love wisdom.
In this sense to be a Christian is, by definition, to be a philosopher p. The false dualism and dichotomies that separate knowledge, wisdom, and philosophy from the gospel truths of Christianity are simply false, un-Biblical, and un-Christian. Christ is, indeed, Lord of all knowledge and of everything. The Word of God must also be looked at as we discuss education, science and philosophy. The word of God is the Bible, but it is more than the Bible. Scriptures speak to us the words of God, and so does creation. As Eugene Peterson puts it, "The word of God constitutes the total reality in which we find ourselves.
We must get beyond this without falling into creation worship, or idolatry. Again Petersen asserts, "The total reality that we inhabit is the Word of the living God p. Some scholars also add restoration here as a fourth category through which to understand the human condition and hope.

Stressing the importance of walking by God's Spirit and functioning out of a place of love, hospitality, self-knowledge, and community cannot be underestimated in the makeup of what constitutes God-honoring and meaningful teaching in Christian education. Greene states, "Christian teaching should, above all, be meaningful. This means the learning should come to be associated in the student's mind with the knowledge of God. It is in God that we learn and it is in Him that education has meaning and purpose and learning takes place holistically. Hospitality also plays an essential role for the educator and for the learner alike.
As Henri Nouwen is quoted by Greene, "When we look at teaching in terms of hospitality, we can say that the teacher is called upon to create for his students a free and fearless space where mental and emotional development can take place Reaching Out, p.
Albert Greene ends Reclaiming the Future of Christian Education with an insightful conclusion that pulls together his thoughts, ideas, concepts, and tips for reclaiming the future of Christian education. Greene states at the end of the book, that there are three goals for Christian education: The second is encouraging reconciled lives that give visibility to the Christian worldview of creation, fall, and redemption. The third is nurturing students in such a way that through the school studies their awe, love, praise, and service to God are deepened p.
