Teaching and Christian Imagination

Teaching and Christian Imagination

David I SmithSusan Felch

$29.99

Paperback
:This book invites Christian teachers to slow down, take a deep breath, and allow their weary souls to recover. The authors -- experienced teachers themselves -- encourage teacher-readers to imagine their work differently, opening up possibilities for reanimating how they view learning in a Christian context.

In Teaching and Christian Imagination David Smith and Susan Felch creatively use three metaphors -- journeys, gardens, and buildings -- to illuminate a fresh vision of teaching and learning. Stretching beyond familiar cliches, they infuse these metaphors with rich biblical echoes and theological resonances. "We need vision, not just beliefs and techniques," the authors argue in their introduction. "And that vision, if it is to sustain us, must be deeply Christian."
