Overview

Teaching that Transforms aims to improve the ways in which the Bible is taught to adult learners. As grownups today leave the church in droves, academic professors Richard and Shera Melick recognize that it is in part because many who teach adults have little or no exposure to the distinctive characteristics of adult learners, rendering their lessons ineffective.

Affirming the traditional authority of God’s Word while considering the need to make it relevant to every generation in its cultural and educational context, the authors set out to present an easily understood method for teaching the Bible among adults which they describe as “transformactional.”
Indeed, the Bible is taught in order to transform a person’s life. And the next great result of that transformation is putting a stronger faith into action.

    Great Introduction to Bible Teaching

    I recently took a course from GGBTS taught by Dr. Shera Melick. She used this as the primary text. It is nicely organized as a text for a Bible teaching course. It is organized into chapters that fit nicely with a weekly study. It addresses the many aspects of Bible teaching, from proper interpretation of the Bible, to adult learning principles, to how to put together a lesson. I highly recommend it for anyone serious about learning how to improve their Bible teaching.
