Teach Like a Disciple
Exploring Jesus’ Instructive Relationships from an Educational Perspective
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"In the midst of pressures such as high stakes testing, a scramble for resources, and intense scrutiny of education, it is no wonder that teachers and those considering the profession may grow weary and discouraged. What Jillian Lederhouse presents to us in this text is Jesus' demonstration of loving relationships as a counter balance to the pressures, and a foundation for effective teaching."
--Scot Headley, Dean of the College of Education, George Fox University
"Teach Like a Disciple offers fresh perspective on ten interactions between Jesus and his pupils. In addition to looking at what we can learn about Jesus, the author considers what can be learned about each student and what one can learn about teaching from the Master Teacher and his disciples. Lederhouse combines careful biblical exegesis with application to teaching that is both practical and timely."
--Karen A. Wrobbel, EdD; Director, Division of Education, Trinity International University, Deerfield, IL
"I highly recommend this very readable and valuable book to all teachers who want to develop in their profession and vocation and would recommend it as required reading for programs that educate teachers."
--Ken Pudlas, Professor, Director, MAES - SPED, School of Education, Trinity Western University
"The authors of the four gospels record conversations between Jesus and a variety of characters. With care and clarity, Lederhouse shows in Teach Like A Disciple how Jesus created and used these teachable moments. Teachers and professors will love how she unpacks these encounters. In fact, all those interested in how Jesus taught should read this thoughtful and needed book."
--Ken Badley, Mount Royal University, Calgary, Alberta
