    One thought on “Creative Bible Teaching”

    1. This book has great explanation of teaching and preaching, but it only gives one method and the information on actually studying the bible isn't really that great. It seems to slightly discredit topical preaching (which is important too) and favor exegetical based, nothing wrong with that, just that their are more views on this and they could have been mentioned more and covered.

    2. Pretty helpful book in helping to prepare Bible studies for different ages. It gives recommendations on teaching styles that are necessary for young children to adults. The book is quite practical in laying out steps, suggestions, and teaching methods for different audiences. Diagrams and sheets in the book are helpful in providing a systematic approach to teaching.

    3. Provides recommendations for developing the approach and methods for structuring and effectively constructing and teaching bible lessons. Results are evaluated as well.Three domains of learning: (1) Cognitive -Content aim thinking and knowing (2) Affective-Inspiration aim, Values and attitudes (3) Behavioral-action aim, Actions and Skills. Hook - Gain student’s attention, Book - Clarify content meaning, Look - Relate content to their life, Took - Lead the student to a specific acti [...]

    4. De los mejores libros que he leído. Si en verdad estás comprometido con la enseñanza bíblica debes leer este libro. Tiene ayudas muy prácticas.

    5. Creative Bible Teaching introduces much educational psychology and theory that would take too many classes to cover if a student was trying to develop and assimilate the skills piecemeal. It is written in an accessible style with a minimum of technical complexity, though it provides comprehensive tools for developing a competent method.The book centers around a general lesson outline dubbed: “Hook, Book, Look and Took” (recommending a short, attention getting introduction, a biblical based l [...]

    6. I vehemently hated the first half of this book.I appreciate some of the second half of this book. Overall, I think this book needs to be updated in a very serious way. It's 15+ years old, and it reads like it. It doesn't have a clear enough flow and methodology. It's a lot of information dumped in different categories. The chapters on how different age groups learn was its redeeming quality for me. The creative Bible study method pales in comparison to Grasping God's Word's Interpretive Journey. [...]

    7. I feel this book accomplished what it set out to do, in that it had a clear and detailed focus on teaching the Bible. Where it ran a little shy was the process of studying the Bible (which is a crucial prerequisite to teaching it) thankfully the course supplemented this by also requiring us to read 'Living by the Book'. If anyone wished for a reference that would develop ideas for teaching the Bible to a wide range of age groups, this is probably it. Every age from preschoolers to adults, it out [...]

    8. pretty good. gives tried-and-true teaching methods to effectively encourage learning of the bible. Not really that creative, but doesn't need to be. Offers a lot of ideas and information about how to get people engaged in learning rather than having them be passive.

    9. Title gives a different meaning. A better title would be, "Creative Small Group Teaching." Because that is what it is about. I read it for and ORU class and liked it for small groups.

    10. Well this book is a little bit stilted, dated and corny it is a helpful resource for preparing Bible Studies

    11. Another one read for a class. I just felt like it was attempting to teach a teenager how to teach Bible Study. It wasn't all bad, but it definitely wasn't challenging or insightful.

    12. The first part of the book is boring, dry and not creative, but useful tips are found in the second half.

    13. For the most part its pretty good and gives some good ideas of how to teach. The HBLT method is actually a pretty good method in developing a lesson plan.
