How Shall We Then Care?
A Christian Educator’s Guide to Caring for Self, Learners, Colleagues, and Community
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
“How Shall We Then Care? explores the essential caring aspect of teaching through theoretical pieces, empirical studies, and autobiographical snap shots. . . . The book breathes care and concern for the profession of teaching, the art of preparing teachers to serve in classroom, the persons who are teachers, and the students who are nurtured by teachers. Anyone concerned with reflecting on the nature of teaching will find this book helpful.”
—Albert Boerema, Calvin University
“The range of essays in this book helps the reader understand much more deeply what it means for teachers to care for their students, how teachers can care for students who have been through significant emotional trauma in their lives, why empathy is so important for compassionate teachers, how spiritual practices can sustain teaching, and so much more. This book will change the way you teach.”
—Bill Boerman-Cornell, Professor of Education, Trinity Christian College, and author of Graphic Novels in High School and Middle School Classrooms
