Is there a way to go beyond Christian perspectives on the subject matter and think about the teaching itself as Christian?
Christian teachers have long been thinking about what content to teach, but little scholarship has been devoted to how faith forms the actual process of teaching. Smith's scholarly exploration of education combines both theory and practice. With clever and sometimes funny examples, he shows how teachers of every subject and age group can be attentive to how their students are experiencing and interpreting learning. From desk arrangement to discussion questions, there are myriad opportunities to design classes that are deeply rooted in Christian faith practices. On Christian Teaching provides fresh insight into Christian education that expresses faith and community.
