IMPARTING THE WORD: The Bible In Christian Education by Iris V. Cully

IMPARTING THE WORD: The Bible In Christian Education

Email this review


Beginning with a conviction that current practice in religious education lags decades behind what the Biblical scholars are finding in research and then teaching in seminaries, Dr. Cully has endeavored to close that gap. This is both an introduction to Biblical scholarship, and a lot of sound advice to educators on what to do with these insights now that we have them. Dr. Cully has gone out of her way to keep the writing simple enough for several million Church school teachers to understand, yet her solid background and her educational vision make this equally useful for pastors, professional teachers and college students. Of special merit are her handling of ""myth"" and her many suggestions for presenting Biblical teaching in such a way that learning ensues.
