Most widely held works by John H Westerhoff
McGuffey and his readers : piety, morality, and education in nineteenth-century America by John H Westerhoff( Book )

5 editions published between 1978 and 1982 in English and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Holmes McGuffey -- teacher, preacher, college president, writer, educational reformer, and schoolbook compiler -- is perhaps the most important figure in the history of American public education, yet very few people know much about the man himself. Except for a few letters, a pair of handwritten sermons, and one unpublished manuscript on moral philosophy, his known writings are few. This book makes available some of those scarce writings as it looks at the man and his textbooks. It is estimated that at least 120 million copies of McGuffey's Readers were sold between 1836 and 1920, placing their sales in a class with the Bible and Webster's Dictionary. Indeed, since 1961 they have continued to sell at a rate of some thirty thousand copies a year. - Jacket
Will our children have faith? by John H Westerhoff( Book )

15 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally written in 1976, revised in 200, and translated in six languages, this classic critique of Christian education is newly revised and expanded and includes Westerhoff's overview and perspective on the state Christian education over the past forty years -- plus his role in that history. According to Westerhoff, instead of guiding faith formation within the family, the church, and the school, we relegate religious education to Sunday morning classes. There, children learn the facts about religion, but how will they learn or experience faith? How can we nourish and nurture the faith of children, instead of only teaching the facts? Includes a study guide, by faith formation specialist Sharon Ely Pearson

Living the Faith Community explains why Christians long to be in community and the quality of the communities they need to receive, sustain, and deepen their faith. In this eloquent summary, John Westerhoff identifies four essentials of religious community: a common story and memory; a common authority; common rituals; and a fulfilling common life. Westerhoff then goes on to describe with clarity and insight the narrative character of church life, the role of worship, the importance of liturgy to Christian nurture, and the role of catechesis in forming Spirit-filled churches
