Publisher's Description

Why does Bible study flourish in some churches and small groups and not in others? In this updated edition of a trusted classic, two Christian education specialists provide readers with the knowledge and methods needed to effectively communicate the message of the Bible. The book offers concrete guidance for mastering a biblical text, interpreting it, and applying its relevance to life. Its methods, which have been field-tested for twenty-five years, help pastors, teachers, and ministry students improve their classroom skills. Readers will learn how to develop the "big idea" of a passage and allow the text itself to suggest creative teaching methods. This new edition has been updated throughout and explores the changed landscape of Bible study over the past two decades. Readable and interdisciplinary in approach, this book will help a new generation of Bible students teach in a purposeful and unified way.

Author Bio

James C. Wilhoit (PhD, Northwestern University) is the Scripture Press Professor of Christian Formation and Ministry at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, where he has taught for thirty years. He has authored numerous books, including Spiritual Formation as if the Church Mattered. Leland Ryken (PhD, University of Oregon) is professor emeritus of English at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, and the author or editor of nearly forty books, including Words of Delight: A Literary Introduction to the Bible.


For a quarter of a century, Wilhoit and Ryken's Effective Bible Teaching has been a great resource for helping lay Bible teachers better understand how to study and teach God's Word in order to foster increased understanding, spiritual growth, and wholehearted obedience. In light of evidence pointing at the limited impact of the Bible in the lives of those who claim to love and follow Christ today, this update is a much-needed and welcomed resource. It should be read widely and used to shape and deepen the teaching of the Bible in a variety of settings including small groups and Sunday schools.
-Kevin E. Lawson,
director of graduate programs in Christian education studies, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University; editor, Christian Education Journal

From cover to cover, this book is packed full with bull's-eye analyses of what makes poor teaching and concrete action steps to successful teaching each time at bat. Watch out! This book will make 'The Yawner' an extinct species in your classroom.
-Howard G. Hendricks,
Dallas Theological Seminary

What a clever idea! Here is a book on Bible teaching combining the efforts of an outstanding Christian educator and a professor of English who has written several books on Bible study...This book will find its way into many college and seminary classes as well as serving a strategic role in the hands of Sunday school teachers and Bible study leaders.
-Kenneth O. Gangel,
Bibliotheca Sacra

Wilhoit and Ryken have written in a lively style which is easy to read...A very helpful work, and I think it likely that I shall refer to it in my own seminary teaching.
-Donald E. Gowan,
Religious Education

[This book] will help one become a more effective Bible teacher.
-David P. Kuske,
Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly

A well-done overview of how to effectively teach Scripture.
Christian Schools International

For those not experienced in teaching, this book should be a handbook to guide in this most important but often incompetently or irresponsibly performed task. ...This book will bear more than one reading and could become an indispensable reference source for those who teach at all levels in the church.
-Vox Reformata

Worthy of the time and effort required to read it...Effective Bible Teaching is not only profitable for teachers who desire to be better teachers, but is a useful tool in training new teachers. In fact the scope of this book is broad enough that pastors could also benefit from a study of it.
-David Webb,
Christian Education Digest

The writers each bring different strengths to the topic...Their passion for excellence in Bible teaching is needed.
-Krysia P. Lear,

Recommended to all serious teachers of the Word.

Offer[s] pastors, C.E. directors, Bible study leaders and Sunday school teachers practical advice on how to improve adult Bible studies...Anyone who teaches the Bible can profit from the advice given in this fine book.
-James G. Sigountos,
Alliance Life

Every local church should be concerned about the important topic this book addresses...This book is 'required' reading for every pastor who is serious about the local church's responsibility to be involved in effective Bible teaching. The layman who wants to improve his ability to teach God's Word will also benefit from this publication.
-Patrick J. Casey,
Calvary Baptist Theological Journal
