"LeRoy Ford led for us our first workshop on interactive writing and out of that came The Survival Kit for New Christians, Masterlife, Experiencing God, The Mind of Christ and many other of our Lay Institute for Equipping (LIFE) courses."
Roy Edgemon, Director of Discipleship Training, LifeWay Christian Resources
"Whenever I prepare to teach a college or seminary class, or construct a Sunday School lesson, I apply the principles of teaching that I learned from Dr. LeRoy Ford. In my opinion Dr. Ford is the master teacher of our generation. Design For Teaching and Training contains the philosophy of teaching developed by Dr. Ford and is presented in such a way that it is helpful to a Sunday School teacher or a PhD student. Only Dr. Ford could present information that bridges that gap so effectively. The illustrations and cartoons used make the most difficult concepts understandable. This is my number one book to prepare leaders as effective teachers of the Word of God."
Brian Richardson, Basil Manly Jr. professor of Christian Education, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Teaching and learning are as old as the garden, but we are always surprised
when they happen together. Writing with a passion fueled by years of
experience as a classroom practitioner and curriculum developer, LeRoy Ford
has given new life to an ancient art by taking us on a conducted tour for
designing a teaching and training plan. This long-overdue rewrite, with its
easy-to-understand language, will enrich the teaching of both professionals
and laypersons alike."

"LeRoy Ford is today's leading exemplar of rational lesson planning. No one else has done so much to put good learning theory to work in the reform of theological education, or been so utterly consistent in theory and practice."
D. Campbell Wyckoff,
Former Professor of Christian Education, Princeton Theological Seminary
Design for Teaching and Training is a gift from a true teacher for other teachers. LeRoy Ford's passion for learning energizes this book. His years of intelligent and observant experience are revealed in the down to earth synergy of theory and practice."
