Solid Advice for Bible Study Teachers Apr 1, 2007
I was pleasantly surprised to find this book, The Bible Study Teachers Guide, by Beverly Van Kampen. I have been teaching adult bible study on Sunday mornings now for several years. But for the most part, my teaching style and methods have been derived from teaching economics to college students or from my experience in public speaking, not formal study or my work in the church. For me at least, this book fills a void.
Van Kampen is a Christian writer and a Sunday school teacher, but not a Christian educator. She recognizes this blind spot in her own background and fills it with interviews with other experienced college and church Christian educators. Bravo! Her use of the case study approach is innovative and it gives her book depth.
Two points stick out in my mind from reading the book. First, I never considered myself called to teach Bible study. Her discussion of the call was refreshing and it spoke to me personally. Her presentation convinced me that teaching is more than a transitional activity. Second, Van Kampen made a serious point about getting to know your student, both in class and out, for the purpose of facilitating transform. Again--bravo! I have always felt that spiritual development was a goal. For me the question remains how to do it best. Van Kampen provides helpful guidance.
I recommend this book to anyone who is passionate about teaching Bible study.
A tremendous help for anyone leading or teaching Bible Study Oct 24, 2006
After leading Adult Bible Studies for over ten years, I just wish Beverly had written this book 15 years ago. It is a book full of practical ideas and easily implemented suggestions for improving ways of teaching, and learning, that anyone with a heart for studying God's word can use. Carol Shake
If you are a Bible teacher or small group leader you need this book! Oct 23, 2006
Author Beverly Van Kampen has assembled an impressive group of master Bible teachers to share their thoughts during the writing of this book though she herself has an impressive resume. But isn't that part of what teaching is about? A good teacher pulls together material from his or her own experiences and research then mixes in the wisdom of others. And that is exactly what Van Kampen has done in this expertly crafted work. Woven throughout the text are the thoughts of such noted Bible teachers as Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe, Dr. Edwin Lutzer, Dr. Ravi Zacharias and many others. Both new and experienced Bible teachers will gain much from this work including: How to prepare themselves to give the message, how to prepare and present the message, how to connect with students, the keys to leading good discussions and even a guide for one-to-one mentoring. This book is highly recommended for those who are already teachers or discusion leaders and for those who are new to teaching or simply considering whether they have the gifts to teach.
