Item description for Teaching as Paul Taught by Roy Zuck...
Though books on Paul's life and writing abound, very few works have examined the apostle's teaching techniques. In this companion to 'Teaching as Jesus Taught,' Roy Zuck probes Paul's pedagogy to discover principles for effective teaching today.
According to Zuck, the apostle Paul stands as a master teacher. "Analyzing and following Paul's educational goals and strategies," Zuck writes, "can help us become better teachers of God's Word. Examining his pedagogy can acquaint us with a number of important principles and procedures in teaching."
'Teaching as Paul Taught' explores the many New Testament references to Paul's teaching as well as the historical and cultural context in which the apostle taught. Zuck carefully organizes this extensive material around fifteen key questions regarding the teaching ministry of Paul. Over twenty tables and questions for reflection at the end of each chapter aid readers in following Paul's example. The result is a comprehensive and practical handbook for everyone involved in a teaching ministry.

Biblically strong, a perfect reference tool: But Know What You're Buying Apr 28, 2008
REVIEW SUMMARY: Biblically strong, a perfect reference tool for those who want to categorize Paul's teaching methods and apply to their own methods.
OVERVIEW: Roy Zuck follows his classic Teaching as Jesus Taught with a focus on St. Paul (Teach ing as Paul Taught). Zuck makes sure to focus on Scripture and from there draw any and all conclusions.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Biblically focused to draw any conclusions about Paul's teaching, the book is an excellent resource and deserves a place on a teacher's shelf if he/she needs Paul's teaching labeled and categorized. Otherwise, the long lists might make some weary in reading. Definitely recommended, but know what you're buying.
MY REVIEW: THE GOOD: Completely focused on Scripture. If Zuck points out that Paul uses Questions as a teaching method he'll cite two hundred and fifty verses, in a numbered list, and quoting the question. If he wants to expose the reader to Paul's Diatribes he'll feature a table with references , preceding premises, false conclusions, initial brief responses and then the subsequent reason for the rejection: this method is excellent. You're not going to come out of this book thinking Paul's teaching style was something you can confine to a school of thought.
THE BAD: Although helpful to have these lists, they are very much like a concordance: long and dry. Now that can be negative to a certain type of reader who automatically looks at long lists as mere reference.
THE UGLY: The original book jacket is pretty ugly but the newer softcover jacket is nie with an excellent painting on the cover. The font is easy to read and the use of footnotes was done in a manner equal to any scholarly commentary.

Following up on the concise and informative views of Teaching As Jesus Taught, Roy Zuck has taken the next step. Many students of the Bible really do not think Paul a teacher, but well, how else could he have helped established Christianity in Europe and Asia? Zuck details almost exactly, the strategies and methods used by Paul and how we can learn and use these tools!
