BOOK EXCERPT:

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.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The author was conducting a workshop for teachers in a church and was handed a note by a young woman in the workshop. The note read, "I have never taught anything or anyone . . . I don't know how to begin to prepare. Can you help?" Dr. Coleman meets scores of teachers just like the young woman. He indicates there are "men and women who are doing their best, but who have serious doubts about their adequacy as teachers of the Bible. Wherever you meet them, they ask these same questions: How can I learn enough about the Bible to have something worth sharing with my class? How can I get the members of my class involved in the lessons, so I won't have to do all the talking? How do you get people interested, when they seem so indifferent to Bible study? Is there any way to get the class members to study their lessons? How do you lead class members to do something about the message of the Bible, other than just sit there and discuss it? Where can I find out more about teaching methods? How do you prepare a teaching plan? "These workers care deeply about Bible teaching. They want to do a good job. But they don't quite know how to go about it. And that explains the reason for this book." Dr. Coleman integrates theory and practice in a how-to-do-it book which combines discussions of teaching with skill-building exercises. He brings the elements of a Bible teacher's conference to the individual who has had no opportunity to attend such a conference. At the same time, the book may also be used as a textbook for teacher-training workshops.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Teaching the Bible Coming to terms with the interpretive revolution- Although the field of biblical studies is bursting with new methods and fresh interpretations, there has been surprisingly little discussion of what these changes mean for the actual task of teaching the Bible. Happily, this volume takes significant first steps in addressing the shifts in classroom pedagogy that the new day in biblical studies urgently demands. Norman K. Gottwald Author of The Hebrew Bible: A Brief Socio-Literary Introduction An absolutely indispensable compendium of resources for charting the changes in the discipline of biblical studies, for exposing the operations of power in past and present interpretations and uses of the Bible, and for discovering a variety of postmodernist and postcolonial pedagogies in the reading and teaching of the Bible in a radically pluralistic age. Abraham Smith Perkins School of Theology, S.M.U. A superb collection of essays on a topic centrally important to theological education and biblical studies. It is an invaluable contribution to the new emancipatory paradigm emerging in biblical studies. Highly accessible, a must reading for anyone in the field. Elisabeth Schssler Fiorenza, Krister Stendahl Professor of Divinity Harvard University Divinity School Teaching the Bible engages the problem and opportunity of theological education in the twenty-first century head on. In a tightly crafted series of provocative essays, the work clearly defines the postmodern, postcolonial, culturally enriched challenges facing the academy today. For any student or scholar who wants to engage the postmodern challenge as an innovative opportunity rather than a debilitating crisis, Teaching the Bible is required reading. Brian K. Blount President, Union Theological Seminary-PSCE Fernando F. Segovia is Oberlin Graduate Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the Vanderbilt University Divinity School. He is author, with Ada Mara Isasi-Daz, of Hispanic Latino Theology: Challenge and Promise (Fortress Press, 1996). Mary Ann Tolbert is George H.
