Bible Study for Teachers

By Dan Stanley. The Bible stands at the center of Christian education. It is our main textbook, our training manual and the primary source of God's revelation to us. Without the Bible you can't have Christian education. The most sacred duties of a Christian education teacher are communicating the Word of God and (perhaps more importantly) equipping your group to study the Bible on their own. Finding the truths of the Bible, communicating those truths and helping your students apply those truths to their lives is what teaching in Christian education is all about. The purpose of this workshop will be to give teachers some practical helps to assist them in preparing to find and communicate the truths of the Bible.
