"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, Former 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 Ford is the master teacher of our generation. 'Design For Teaching and Training' contains the philosophy of teaching developed by Ford and is presented in such a way that it is helpful to a Sunday School teacher or a PhD student. Only 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 Leadership and Church Ministry, 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, nor been so utterly consistent in theory and practice."
G. Campbell Wyckoff, Professor of Christian Education, Princeton University, retired
"'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.
