Item description for Teaching the Bible: Practical Strategies for Classroom Instruction (SBL - Resources for Biblical Study, 49) by Patrick Gray (Editor) Mark Roncace (Editor)...
While books on pedagogy in a theoretical mode have proliferated in recent years, there have been few that offer practical, specific ideas for teaching particular biblical texts. To address this need, Teaching the Bible, a collection of ideas and activities written by dozens of innovative college and seminary professors, outlines effective classroom strategies---with a focus on active learning---for the new teacher and veteran professor alike. It includes everything from ways to incorporate film, literature, art, and music to classroom writing assignments and exercises for groups and individuals. The book assumes an academic approach to the Bible but represents a wide range of methodological, theological, and ideological perspectives. This volume is an indispensable resource for anyone who teaches classes on the Bible.

Useful collection of classroom tactics Dec 2, 2006
For what it is this book is very useful. Essentially it is a miscellany of classroom and homework exercises for teaching the Bible. The book collects under topical chapters short essays by various instructors from different academic contexts. The short essays typically focus on some particular tactic to engage the students. Some are gimmicks; others have more value. Most seem to strive self-consciously toward relevance in the age of MTV.
If you are looking for a book on pedagogy this is NOT it. This book is not going to teach you how to design a course on teaching Bible. However, reading this book may give the jaded teacher some new ideas to try out in the classroom.
