Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It's short, it reads fast, and it builds on a single tale of a public school classroom. But this book is anything but insignificant. Author and pastor Travis (Unnamed) brings a humble, approachable style to his story of two years of teaching in one of the most dangerous middle schools in New York. Detailing days where he was abused by his own students or felt depressed and bitter, Travis extends the metaphor of the classroom to finding one's purpose and obeying God's will, even under tough circumstances. His revelation that helping others means more than finding comfort reminds the reader what really matters: unselfish love, serving others, dependence on God. Examples of disciplining sexual predators and telling scary stories to reach unruly students make this book a useful learning tool for first-year teachers. At the same time, incorporation of Jesus' parables and nuggets of wisdom (e.g., use your mistakes as knowledge gained) will help to refocus and inspire anyone who feels stuck or unappreciated in their lifestyle or career. Grab this book and read it. (Aug.)
