Free Ebook from Josh Hunt on Using Questions in Teaching
I've learned a lot from Josh Hunt over the years, and now would like to steer you to his free ebook titled "Good Questions Have Groups Talking." Here is the message Josh sent out about this:
"This is a full book -- approximately 170 pages.
This book will help the teacher ask good questions as a means of teaching adults. It describes in detail the kinds of questions I use each week as I write Good Questions That Have Groups talking.
One caveat: this book is still in review and will be evolving as I get feedback from readers.
Feel free to pass this link along."
I took some time to work through the book and think you'll find a lot of value in it.
I really like the closing words of the book:
"At the micro-church level, you are the pastor.
Just as your pastor spends part of his time in content
preparation and delivery, you need to spend part of your
time in content preparation and delivery. But, that is not
you are called to do. You are called to pastor that microchurch.
You are called to make the group of people into
microcosm of the church.
The heart of a teacher, then, is the heart of a pastor."
Get the book here. You don't even need to give Josh an email address or anything.
I'm sure Josh would love to hear your feedback as well!
P.S. If you know other Bible teachers, steer them to this terrific resource as well.
