This work explores a perennial question that Christians who are called to teach must consider: So what makes our teaching Christian? It considers the essential and distinctive elements of Christian teaching by examining the apostles' teaching ministry in the Book of Acts and aspects of Jesus's own teaching in the Gospel of John. It proposes how teaching in the name, spirit, and power of Jesus relates to the teaching ministries of Christians today. For example, an in-depth look at Jesus's teaching of both Nicodemus and the Samaritan woman known in Christian tradition as Photini provides insights for transformative teaching of both insiders and outsiders in a Christian community. This work is a theological, pastoral, and educational exploration of Christian teaching that has implications for both laity and clergy in their ministries.

Christian, do you know who you are? Well, we know we are going to heaven and probably ought to be good until then, but is that all? Is Christian salvation nothing more than being good today for the promise of a future? Christians have talked about salvation for so long we have forgotten its meaning and power. We are saved, so what? What is the big deal? Is salvation a big deal? Sometimes, we stop even talking about salvation. The Christianity of the Bible is a powerful, life-giving, history-changing faith and life, but Christianity in the western world is too often unremarkable and declining. Are we missing something? There is more. There is so much more. Come, read and study. Open your heart and mind to the riches of Christian life and faith. Explore the life to which you have been saved, the life the Father intended for you in your creation. An ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, Rev. Moreau holds a Master of Divinity from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University. When health issues necessitated leaving parish ministry, she used the time to respond to one of the greatest needs in the local church today: the need for the laity to be taught the content of the faith and to come to see the world through the eyes of Christ - in short, to love God with all of their minds. Over a decade of service in the local church convinced Rev. Moreau that the laity desire the deeper things of God. Raised in East Texas, Rev. Moreau now lives in Houston, where she continues to write and teach as her health improves. She has one son, Paul, and is the grandmother of the most precious grandchildren ever born: Brandon, Kenny, Kyler, Kambrei and Brianna.

"This is not a how-to book on teaching, but one with the daring vision that Christian teaching is a vocation, a high calling, which is empowered by God's Spirit, embodies the gifts of the Spirit, and generates the transformative life-giving fruits of the Spirit. Teaching requires a prophetic and participatory pneumatology whose mission is to touch every dimension of individual, community, and social existence. Teaching is a profound privilege and a responsibility! This volume explains why. "Dr. M. Daniel Carroll R. (Rodas)Blanchard Professor of Old Testament Wheaton College and Graduate School

Bible Shaped Teaching

The Bible can and should be an environment in which we live and move and have our being, an environment in which we are shaped by God in different and interrelated ways. As with aspects of our physical environment, we may have never noticed many elements of this spiritual environment before or may have only the vaguest sense of their influence. While we may be more familiar with certain elements, we may not realize the full extent of their influence or be too preoccupied to see how they relate to form the larger whole of how we are shaped. This book looks one-by-one at several ways in which the Bible's environment influences us as people and, in particular, shapes our beliefs, attitudes, and practices as teachers in the classroom. It is concerned with helping readers to be, at one and the same time, faithful to our common calling as educators and faithful to the Scriptures as Christians.

In previous books respected New York pastor and bestselling author Timothy Keller has looked at such diverse and topical subjects as the existence of God, our need to do justice, the meaning of Jesus' life, and the human temptation to make idols - all through the twin lenses of a biblical framework and an engagement with contemporary culture. In this new book, co-authored with his wife, Kathy, he turns his attention to that most complex of matters: our need for love, and its expression in marriage. Beginning with the biblical narrative, and its pictures of marriage that span the original ideal to the broken to the redemptive, he looks at themes of friendship and commitment; the completion of men and women in each other; singleness, sex and divorce; and ministry and discipleship within the context of marriage. This is a profound and engaging work that will challenge and inspire people in all stages of life - single, newlywed and married.

Exiles: Living Missionally in a Post-Christian Culture presents a biblical, Christian worldview for the emergent church--people who are not at home in the traditional church or in the secular world. As exiles of both, they must create their own worldview that integrates their Christian beliefs with the contemporary world. Exiles seeks to integrate all aspects of life and decision-making and to develop the characteristics of a Christian life lived intentionally within emerging (postmodern) culture. It presents a plea for a dynamic, life-affirming, robust Christian faith that can be lived successfully in the post-Christian world of twenty-first century Western society. This book will present a Christian lifestyle that can be lived in non-religious categories and be attractive to not-yet Christians. Such a worldview takes ecology and politics seriously. It offers a positive response to the workplace, the arts, feminism, mystery and worship. Exiles seeks to develop a framework that will allow Christians to live boldly and courageously in a world that no longer values the culture of the church, but does greatly value many of the things the Bible speaks positively about. This book suggests that there us more to being a Christian than meets the eye. It explores the secret, unseen nooks and crannies in the life of a Christian and suggests that faith is about more than church attendance and belief in God. Written in a conversational, easy-to-read style, Exiles is aimed at church leaders, pastors and laypersons and seeks to address complex issues in a simple manner. It includes helpful photographs and diagrams.

"To reject power and its legitimate use is ultimately to reject God's gift and intention for Christians as we live in the world," writes Robert W. Pazmino. He defines what authority is and how it is perceived by and operates in various Christian communities. He applies these factors and the need for confident, authoritative teachers specifically to the ministry of Christian education. By What Authority Do We Teach? completes a trilogy covering key elements of evangelical education. Also in print are Foundational Issues in Christian Education, an agenda of theological, sociological, psychological, curricular, and other concerns; and Principles and Practices of Christian Education, which integrates conversion and connection into the teaching task.
