Noted Christian education professor and theorist Robert W. Pazmino shares the theological essentials to guide faithful educational thought and practices in the third millennium. He explores a prepositional theology that deepens the relationships between God and us through our teaching and learning together with spiritual wisdom. ""Here is a book that can be read for many purposes: as a substantial review of the calling of education in the mission of the church, as a challenging text on the theological foundations of Christian education, and as a stretching exercise for those who are serious about the educational and missional aspects of ministry."" --Ted Ward, Michigan State University and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, emeritus ""A refreshing and wise look at the teaching ministry of the church. Pazmino has done well at grounding his reflection in a winsome and irenic historic orthodoxy."" --Jim Wilhoit, Wheaton College ""God Our Teacher explores the important roles of the Trinity in teaching ministries. Pazmino serves the reader well in his call for balancing unity and diversity and engaging the world in a holistic ministry of teaching."" --Cathy Stonehouse, Asbury Theological Seminary ""This book presents a balanced view that is continually framed by biblical boundaries and demonstrates Pazmino's encyclopedic grasp of the resources that have stimulated his thinking."" --Julie Gorman, Fuller Theological Seminary ""God Our Teacher is a carefully crafted, robust, and theologically grounded vision for Christian education. A worthwhile read for anyone committed to the teaching ministry of the church."" --Robert Drovdahl, Seattle Pacific University ""God Our Teacher is different from typical books on teaching and learning in that it begins with Scripture and presents a theologically informed perspective for Christian education."" --Dennis E. Williams, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ""No contemporary educator more creatively develops teaching metaphors or is better able to design theologically strong models for Christian education than Robert Pazmino."" --Marlene LeFever, author of Creative Teaching Methods and Learning Styles Robert W. Pazmino is Valeria Stone Professor of Christian Education at Andover Newton Theological School in Newton Centre, Massachusetts, where he has taught since 1986. He has also taught at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and other theological schools across the United States. He is the author of several books, including Foundational Issues in Christian Education (2008), So What Makes Our Teaching Christian? (2008), Doing Theological Research (2009), and A Boy Grows in Brooklyn (2014). He serves as a national consultant for the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion.

    Ours is an age of rapid change. What is fashionable comes and goes more quickly than ever before. In a world of such rapid change, it's essential to know who you are--to know where you come from, to have your roots go deep. Walking through this book is like going to a large family reunion and meeting for the first time some relatives you didn't know you had. Here in all of its richness and diversity is your family of faith. Of course, the roots of Christian education go deep into the Hebrew heritage. In many ways, Christian education is an extension of Hebrew education.

    The office of dean has evolved from assistant to the president to senior administrative officer with signficant responsibilities for academic leadership. This book presents the findings of the Lilly-sponsored Study of Chief Academic Officers in North American Theological Schools. The study's director offers a description of the deanship in theological education based on the research data, examines effective practices in both performance and hiring, reflects critcally on the potential of the office, and affirms the importance of the call to academic administration. This book will be of value to deans and the theological schools that hire them, and to presidents, faculty, administrators, board members, and church leaders who work with deans.

    Being part of a small group can be a bit like climbing a mountain--it has risks but the payoff is immense. That is why Trent, Cox, and Tooker have styled this second book in the Leading From Your Strengths series like a mountain climbing expedition.Just like climbing Mount Everest, climbing the mountain to intimacy in your small group involves five stages, or camps. You begin at your "base camp" commitment, and then move through the various stages of honesty, acceptance, closeness, and finally the mountain's peak of intimacy. Once again, the Ministry Insights team will be your expedition guide on your climb as you learn to leverage your strengths for effective and successful small group experiences.
