Written by Christian education specialists, The Christian Educator’s Handbook on Teaching is a complete resource on Christian teaching for use in the home, church, and school! A variety of principles and practices are outlined, including valuable insights for both the beginning teacher and the veteran. Handbook on Teaching includes sections on teaching children, teaching adults, designing biblical instruction, choosing and using creative minds, and much more. Charts and illustrations are also found throughout the text. Teaching with a Scriptural foundation has never been easier!
In Handbook on Teaching you will find a gold mine of information on all phases and places of teaching God’s truth. Twenty-one chapters address four general topics:
“Jesus’ primary concern was not His reputation but His responsibility.” (Page 23)
“Reaching the core of a student’s life demands contact with the whole person as he/she thinks, feels, and wills. That is why Jesus so frequently shared His own emotions of compassion, judgment, love, hate, joy, sorrow, gratitude, and sympathy.” (Page 20)
“What Christ was determined where He was. He could companion with sinners without being complicated by their sins. He hated sin but loved the sinner. Acceptance cannot be equated with approval.” (Page 23)
“From our Lord we learn that good teaching involves helping the learner to assume responsibility for his thinking and living. He was forever encouraging and enabling people to make the best possible choices.” (Page 28)
“Statements like that have a Pygmalion effect on people. ‘You follow Me. I’ll make you.’ That involves a mutual responsibility in the teaching-learning process.” (Page 23)
