Good for Everyone Sep 4, 2003
As a former high school teacher of theology, I wish I had read this book years ago. I would have loved to teach using its novel methods. Without a doubt, I would also have loved to experience this type of education in my own faith formation as a youth. In this book, Bernadette Stankard presents an abundance of helpful research into the nine types of intelligence. What's more impressive is her practical applications of lessons and activities for each type of intelligence, each of which builds a young person's faith in a unique way. People with true faith have usually acquired it by experience, not by merely studying it. This book offers a multitude of experiences designed to nurture the seeds of faith in many different types of young people. All of them have been tested in the classroom by the author and found successful. Do your students like nature? Try the "Terrarium Terrain" exercise. Do they enjoy math? Challenge them with "The Cost of Poverty" activity. Do they appreciate creative storytelling? Invite them to try their hand at "The Gospel According to me." Kids will come to enjoy faith formation in a fresh and new way. Stankard reminds us that God has made each of us with different talents, gifts, and challenges and we each come to know God in different ways. This book respects and celebrates the God-given differences in each human being. Using this book will prove that faith formation in youth can truly be stimulating, challenging and very rewarding for students and teachers alike.
Great for Sunday School Teachers Aug 22, 2003
Have you ever had a late Saturday night trying to come up with ideas for church in the morning? I found this book wonderfully refreshing and full of creative ways to bring God to children. It also made me begin thinking of news ways to bring the Bible alive.
Wonderful for All Educators Aug 8, 2003
Have you ever had a frustrating Saturday night before teaching Sunday school because you couldn't come up with any ideas? Read this book. Ms. Stankard explores the many varied ways to get children in touch with God and in touch with His attributes. Sing the Blues to God, use a prayer blanket, cook a Bible recipe. The author opens the door to creativity in a refreshing manner. Great book.
