Publisher Comments:

Are you a bridge builder? Communicating the Scriptures is much like building a bridge. However, instead of ravines or rivers, the teacher must span both cultural boundaries and great gulfs of time between the present and the past of Moses, David, Jesus, and Paul. This bridge must reach even further. The student must be able to cross both into the past and into his own future. God's Word is "living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword" (Hebrews 4:12). It is contemporary, relevant. But it is the teacher who has the task of helping the student to see its vast treasures. This is no easy task, but it can be done through creative Bible teaching.

Together, Richards and Bredfeldt have written a book on bridge-building that reveals a detailed five-step process by which Christian educators can construct a bridge across time, geography, and culture.

Synopsis:

Richards and Bredfeldt teach Christian educators to construct a bridge across time, geography, and culture, helping their students to see the Scriptures' vast treasures.

Synopsis:

In this newly revised edition of Creative Bible Teaching, the authors focus on how to better understand the Bible we teach and how to unleash the transforming power of Scripture.
