Abstract:

This book offers an energizing Christian vision for the art of teaching. The authors -- experienced teachers themselves -- encourage teacher-readers to reanimate their work by imagining it differently. David Smith and Susan Felch, along with Barbara Carvill, Kurt Schaefer, Timothy Steele, and John Witvliet, creatively use three metaphors -- journeys and pilgrimages, gardens and wilderness, buildings and walls -- to illuminate a fresh vision of teaching and learning. Stretching beyond familiar clichés, they infuse these metaphors with rich biblical echoes and theological resonances that will inform and inspire Christian teachers everywhere.
