  • 2020 Outreach Magazine Resource of the Year (Also Recommended, Cross-Cultural and Missional)
  • In our globalized world, ideas are constantly being exchanged between people of different cultural backgrounds. But educators often struggle to adapt to the contexts of diverse learners. Some focus so much on content delivery that they overlook crosscultural barriers to effective teaching. Educator and missiologist James Plueddemann offers field-tested insights for teaching across cultural differences. He unpacks how different cultural dynamics may inhibit learning and offers a framework for integrating conceptual ideas into practical experience. He provides a model of teaching as pilgrimage, where the aim is not merely the mastery of information but the use of knowledge to foster the development of the pilgrim learner. Plueddemann's crosscultural experience shows how teachers can make connections between content and context, bridging truth and life. Those who teach in educational institutions, mission organizations, churches, and other ministries will find insights here for transformational crosscultural learning.

    Teaching Cross-Culturally is a challenging consideration of what it means to be a Christian educator in a culture other than your own. Chapters include discussions about how to uncover cultural biases, how to address intelligence and learning styles, and teaching for biblical transformation.

    Teaching Cross-Culturally is ideal for the western-trained educator or missionary who plans to work in a non-western setting, as well as for those who teach in an increasingly multicultural North America.

    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. "Paperback edition is available from the Society of Biblical Literature (www.sbl-site.org)"

    What is "Christian" about Christian education; how is it different from on-Christian education? A Theology for Christian Education examines this question in depth and argues that the doctrines of systematic theology should drive the content, purpose, and methods of the educational program of the c hurch. The book states:

    "Christian education is distinct from other kinds of education in that its aim is the transformation of the whole person into the likeness of Christ (Col. 1:28). Christian education is the process of accomplishing this aim."

    A Theology for Christian Education dedicates chapters to examining particular doctrines and their implications for Christian education. It is the only serious academic text to offer a systematic presentation of the intersection of theology and Christian education from a conservative evangelical perspective.

    The bible college is a major force in the evangelical church of North America today, producing many of its leaders and 75 percent of its missionaries. Underlying the educational philosophy of the bible college is the concept that the teachings of scripture are foundational and permeating truths that impact all areas of life. Not until now has any book presented the biblical model of faith and learning as a practical paradigm for an educational institution. Toward a Harmony of Faith and Learning: Essays on Biblical College Curriculum is a comprehensive presentation of the unique educational philosophy of the bible college. The overall structure of the book follows the threefold curriculum pattern of the bible college - biblical, professional, and general (liberal arts) studies. Each chapter examines one academic discipline within the bible college, its biblical foundation and philosophical rationale. Practical suggestions on curriculum development and classroom implementation are provided in each chapter, including helpful ideas on teaching methods, textbook selection, student involvement, and student preparation for future service or vocational ministry.

    Historically education has been driven from behind - the history, and above - the educational institution. Traditions and adherence requirements have led to inflexible models of school leadership that are focused on administration and rife with educational politics. In contrast, today's theological landscape needs institutions with a grassroots-driven educational system, looking to a future that is biblically and theologically grounded. This publication, an English translation from the original German focuses on the leadership and curriculum development required for such a paradigm shift. Ott comprehensively assesses trends in current theological education across the world with detailed reference to wider trends in global tertiary education. Written primarily for those in leadership roles at theological schools and training institutions, this handbook is an essential resource for equipping the next generation of leaders in theological education.
