Product Description

"If you want to see great teaching in action, read this book. If you believe that college classes can be communities of learning where knowledge of self, others, and the world is sought in response to God's call and the world's need, read this book. If you yearn for pedagogical wisdom capable of sustaining resistance to consumerist and instrumentalist pressures on teaching and learning, read this book."

This quote from the Forward of Teaching and Christian Practices: Reshaping Faith and Learning tells us exactly what this book is about: combining Christian religious practice with Christian pedagogy in order to ensure a more well-rounded theologically and life based education and formation for our students.

Consisting of 11 essays, authors discuss, theorize, and debate the ways in which the task of melding practice and education together in the classroom can be accomplished. It contains essays from some of today's leading pedagogical specialists, on topic such as spiritual formation through reading sharing meals to encourage healthy eating, or thinking through the the implications of biblical hermeneutics for use in analyzing economic data. A wonderful book that is as stimulating as it is helpful and informative for teachers, professors, and anyone interested in the Christian teaching task.Contributors Include:

Endorsements

Christian professors who seek to integrate their faith into their teaching often lack wise guides. Fortunately, David I. Smith and James K. A. Smith here provide a work in which thoughtful Christian teachers lead readers through reflections upon their own efforts to transform their pedagogical habits by incorporating unique Christian practices. As I read and pondered these insightful stories, I found myself constantly rethinking my own teaching routines. This book represents Christian educational philosophy at its practical best.
