The study summarized in this thesis was undertaken to explore the principles of producing a guidebook for the Lutheran pupil in first-year confirmation class. The need for a guidebook--psychologically, educationally, theologically, and aesthetically adequate--was brought home to the writer by experience in confirmation class teaching and by conversation with other pastor-teachers. The need was accentuated not primarily by the failure of any manual currently available, but by the desire for a manual which would be more useful, interest-catching, and challenging. This considered need, then, motivated the research into principles which might undergird the construction of such a guidebook.
