The use of life approach in the teaching of Christian Religious Education (CRE) has been recommended as an intervention that would greatly improve students' interest and achievement in this subject in secondary schools. However,it has been observed that some teachers continue to teach the subject using inappropriate approaches with disastrous consequences on students' interest and achievement. This, coupled with the numerous challenges that teachers face while teaching CRE in secondary schools, has led to low achievement and students loosing interest in the subject. The author set out to discuss the use of the life approach and the challenges which teachers face while teaching CRE in secondary schools in rural Kenya. The author argues that if these challenges are effectively addressed and teachers embrace the use of life approach in the teaching of CRE, students' performance in this subject will improve. This book is therefore useful to professionals who play key roles in the teaching and learning of CRE in secondary schools as teachers, head teachers, educational officials or consultants.
