“How many did you have in Sunday school last Sunday?” “What is your Sunday school averaging now?” These and many similar questions can be heard at conventions, in fellowship meetings, and at many other places where pastors convene and converse. Such questions remind us that the Sunday school is the number one criterion by which we judge the success of our churches. Hence, I felt impressed to add The Hyles Sunday School Manual to The Hyles Manual Series. Methods and materials presented herein come from the author’s experiences of over twenty years of pastoring churches whose Sunday schools have ranged in attendance from 7 to 4700.
