About-

Every generation must accept the responsibility of training the next. Yet, are modern Christian pastors and educators using teaching paradigms that impact memory and long-term memory retention? Pedagogical Theory of the Hebrew Bible is a cross-disciplinary book that connects religious education with active learning theory and demonstrates how these two areas are intimately connected within the biblical texts of Genesis through 2 Kings. Through vivid discussion of the literary texts, Adrian Hinkle demonstrates that religious educators never used isolated oral stories or instructions. Instead, these are purposefully connected with other learning formats to increase memory retention and ensure each generation experiences the traditions of Yahweh.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Hinkle's valuable investigation highlights many previously overlooked but significant Old Testament pedagogical texts. In the past, Christian pedagogical models have depended too heavily upon non-biblical paradigms, but Hinkle's research will aid in the formation of more effective approaches."
--Lee Roy Martin, Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Languages, Pentecostal Theological; Editor, Journal of Pentecostal Theology

"The eclectic methodology adopted by the author, which includes a combination of historical-critical and literary approaches, ensures that all angles of the topic are covered and allows the author to apply contemporary pedagogical theory with impressive results. Her approach also ensures that the reader whose primary area of expertise is education will feel just as much at home with this volume as will the biblical critic and commentator."
--Martin O'Kane, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, University of Wales Trinity Saint David

"Dr. Hinkle offers new insight regarding the development and function of the Hebrew Bible. With an attentive focus on passages across the Canon of Scripture, Hinkle guides the reader to discern how Scripture forms persons within the community of faith. Hinkle demonstrates how Scripture serves the role of transmitting faith from every established adult audience in one generation to the emerging next generation of children and youth."
--Marty Alan Michelson, Professor of Old Testament; Author of The Greatest Commandment, Reconciling Violence & Kingship, and King David & God's People
