Review: Christian and Critical English Language Educators in Dialogue: Pedagogical and Ethical Dilemmas

Document Type

Book Review

Publication Date



Missionaries have been involved in English teaching for at least a century. In recent decades, however, the field of English Language Teaching (ELT) has grown globally and professionally. As a result, missionaries who are teaching English as ministry, especially those with no teaching credentials, have been singled out by critics as being unethical and having subversive hidden agendas (see Edge, 2003, and Pennycook, 2003).
