Overview

Are you a bridge builder? Communicating the Scriptures is much like building a bridge. However, instead of ravines or rivers, the teacher must span both cultural boundaries and great gulfs of time between the present and the past of Moses, David, Jesus, and Paul. This bridge must reach even further. The student must be able to cross both into the past and into his own future.
God's Word is "living and active, sharper than any doubleedged sword" (Hebrews 4:12). It is contemporary. Relevant. But it is the teacher who has the task of helping the student to see its vast treasures. This is no easy task, but it can be done through creative Bible teaching. Together, Richards and Bredfeldt have written a book on bridgebuilding that reveals the following fivestep process by which Christian educators can construct a bridge across time, geography, and culture.

I teach several times each week - various topics, but primarily Bible studies. This book really helped me to clarify and focus my preparation and has made me a better teacher. It was a text in a class I took awhile back, but I go back to it often to refresh my style. The focus is not just on conveying information, but teaching in a way that produces life change in the student. I especially like chapter 8 that gives clear methods to accomplish this. Creative Bible Teaching is not only for Bible teachers. The principles could be used to teach any topic - from "How to build a bird house" to "Practical Nuclear Physics" ;). It would be very helpful for school teachers through college professors - as well as pastors whose sermons need some help. I highly recommend this book as an essential for those wanting to teach effectively!
