Overview

High school Bible teachers often struggle with holding students' interest while challenging their young minds. For years, Bible classes have been considered bland, shallow, and safe.

Overview

High school Bible teachers often struggle with holding students' interest while challenging their young minds. For years, Bible classes have been considered bland, shallow, and safe. The result is that high school students leave school largely unprepared to defend their faith. Bob Van Allen's Issues in Christianity provides a series of lessons designed to address these matters. This course explores serious and controversial theology in a way that is accessible to high school juniors and seniors. The topics supply a starting point for discussion and are designed to provoke deeper thought, understanding, and spiritual growth. Van Allen expounds on such topics as tithing, dating, and end-times events, including the history surrounding the issue and how it is now viewed by modern-day theologians. This is not a read and fill-in-the-blank curriculum that leaves the teacher out of the equation. Teacher involvement is crucial to present the material, encourage questions, and guide the discussions. As students engage in this material they will begin to think and ask questions. By the end of this course they will know what they believe and why after delving deep into Issues in Christianity.
