This book takes the reader through a five step process of biblical lesson preparation. It begins with Studying the Bible. This step assists the lay person, Bible college student or seminarian in the study of the Bible for the purpose of teaching the Bible. The second step is entitled "Focusing the Message". The reader is instructed in how to take the message of the passage and make it relevant to the modern day learner. Teachers are given practical help in assessing student needs and in designing the class to targe those needs. The third step involves Structuring the Lesson. Here readers are taught how to structure a lesson for maximum impact and student involvement. The fourth step is the teaching step. Here the actual teaching process is explored. The final step is the evaluating step. Effective teaching depends on evaluation and imporvement. This section of the book helps teachers gain insights into their teaching and assists in developing ways to improve. All in all the book is designed to be a systematic presentation of the lesson preparation process.

A comprehensive book on teaching Jan. 16 2006
By M. Teresa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The book is divided into five sections: (1) "Studying the Bible," (2) "Focusing the Message," (3) "Structuring the Lesson," (4) "Teaching the Class," and (5) "Evaluating the Results." The question that is posed is, "How is it that a book (the Bible), given by God to transform, seems so unproductive when taught in the very churches where it is most honored and best known?"(29). It is that particular inquiry that drives the authors to find an answer. Their findings showed the lack of an effective teaching method. Through this book, the authors hope to educate ministry leaders and teachers the "hook, book, look, and took" technique of Bible teaching. The foundation of any Bible teaching starts with a clear understanding of who God is (that He is the Creator) (28) and how He speaks (that God used people to write the Bible) (38). The Bible provides the human race with God's plan for salvation and reconciliation. Richards and Bredfeldt discusses various ways to read and understand the Bible. For example, they suggest that while reading the Bible, one should ask probing questions like "Are there any repeated words or phrases?" (79). When teaching the Bible, it is imperative that the age of students is factored into the lesson. The authors point out that the task for teaching adults is different than teaching preschoolers. For instance, adults desire a challenge and an emotional supportive learning environment (245), while preschoolers learn best in an active, participatory play setting (296). The inclusion of the "summary of developmental characteristics" and "spiritual developmental tasks" for students from preschool to adulthood is helpful, but the student's needs assessment seems too complicated for the average Sunday school teacher to complete (106). The section entitled, "Questions for Discussion and Further Study" facilitates the application of the information read (333).

Detailed and helpful Feb. 21 2006
By Chris L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Creative Bible Teaching has shown me many dimensions I had not known, regarding teaching. I think it to be of tremendous assistance especially to those who are just beginning as teachers and to those who are using it as part of an independent or online study course.

The Spirit Teaches Truth through Wise Means June 10 2014
By Andy Muhich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My title sums up the underlying approach of this book. Unfortunately, most people's view of "teaching" is so narrow that the book's own title does not capture what Richards accomplishes here. He sets out a comprehensive philosophy and practice of teaching the word of God that is easily understood by a lay Bible teacher. The Bible makes it clear that teaching God's truths is categorically different than mere "teaching." Richards gives a foundation for understanding our partnership with the Spirit of God to teach the word of God. But what I love about Richards is that he grounds the mystical, spiritual side of teaching the word of God in practical means through which the Spirit works. He combines best teaching practices and Biblical wisdom to put spiritual teaching into concrete terms without losing sight of the truth that only the Spirit of God reveals Scripture. In short, this is a great example of a belief that God alone works to reveal truth, but He works through wise means in His church. Richards hits the bulls eye in this regard.

Class assigned April 8 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was used as the assigned book for a class entitled 'Teaching Principles & Practices'. I has really given me a useful tool to learn more about doing inductive studying. I am very pleased with the easy to follow instructions as well as the assistance I received from the chapter suggestions for further study in the back of the book.
