    One of the best books in my Library, there are a lot of good books on Christian teaching, but this really breaks down approachable, simplistic elements on teaching those who are really hungry for God's word, I suggest that every one who is Christian Education should read this book, From those in Christian College's & School's to those who volunteer for children's Sunday school. to adult classes.

    Communication and caring compassion is the key to teaching. Hendricks uses the acronym, "TEACHER," to relate his concepts. The examples of teacher-student interaction shared in his book illustrate the importance of communication and show of care that motivates students to learn. He states, "The greatest teachers are not necessarily the people up front with high visibility. They are the people who have great heart. They communicate as a total person, and they communicate to the total person of their hearers (87)." Another way to be a "person of impact," is to be "vulnerable" with one's students. Not only are communication and compassion important, but preparation. Hendricks relates, "Teaching involves a delicate balance between facts and form, between content and communication, between what you teach and how you teach it (77)." If teachers want to prepare their students to "think, learn, and work," then four skills need to be taught: "reading, writing, listening, and speaking" (48).

    Though this book is written for Sunday school teachers, it contains helpful suggestions for use in other teaching venues. For instance, Hendricks suggests a "self-examination" in which teachers ask three questions: "What are my strengths; what are my weaknesses, and what do I have to change?" (35). Great teachers are the ones who continue to grow in their own personal learning. Hendricks' book is a good reminder for all teachers of the main purpose for Bible teaching. Even if the teacher teaches in a secular institution, the basic principles of the book can be utilized. For instance, students will be more willing to try harder and put more effort into their school work if they know the teacher truly cares for them.

    Teaching To Change Lives is a very practical book for new teachers and seasoned pros. The material is relevant and useful to Sunday school and the classroom in a daily school setting. I strongly recommend this book for everyone involved with teaching.
