Good general resource Aug 11, 2007
The first chapter is a little dry and tedious but the book picks up speed and practicality the further it goes. I like the discussion questions at the end to help apply what I had read.
A Needed Tool for the Teaching Ministry of the Church May 16, 2007
I just finished reading this book as part of a Christian Education course for my degree on Religion and I say that this book should be placed in the hands of every Christian teacher and in the hands of those who wish to become Christian teachers. Sunday schools are usually filled with teachers who are not well trained, prepared, or evaluated. Though it is not their fault that these teachers are not prepared or trained, it happens. God deserves our best as well as the students which every week sit under the teaching of someone who is supposed to correctly explain the word of truth. Most Sunday schools classes that I have been in are usually ones that are mediocre in nature because the teacher started the class period late, they were not prepared, no objective or goal were mentioned (we got no where every time), the room was not arranged for teaching, audiovisual aids were not effective or were not present, the teacher couldn't keep the class' attention, and among other things the teacher did not encourage the students to ask questions. These and many other areas are covered in this book. Though I have 4 years as an Instructor in a military technical training environment, I know that there is much to learn in the field of teaching, especially in the teaching ministry of the Church which, mildly put, it sucks. Get this book, you won't be disappointed.
Biblical, practical, balanced, fresh, appropriate in scope Aug 5, 1999
Teaching in Bible college I've reviewed and used scores of texts over the last 25 years. Some have been simplistic and others mentally congest being encyclopedic. This produced raves from the students, both from its biblical insights, and from its well-written inductive review questions. It is pure, godly delight, and a great introduction to Christian education. More students wanted to change their major to Christian Education or commented that they received an exciting vision for it after this one than those before. Success is its best evidence that this is a great book.
