Much has been written on teaching methods and techniques - discussions, questions, uses of audio and visual aids, and so on. But are these to be the gospel teacher's primary equipment? While acknowledging the contributions made by devices in teaching, Joseph McConkie focuses here on principles of teaching. These he brings to us mainly from the scriptures themselves, from the words and example of the Master Teacher. In this context he affirms and defines the role and the divine commission of the gospel teacher and sets out ways in which these may be fulfilled. He emphasizes the teaching of the saving truths; teacher discipline both in preparation and in presentation; the teacher's use of class discussions as a means of leading rather than being led. He stresses that spiritual knowledge is earned and not merely learned. Most important, he shows that ultimate excellence in gospel teaching is inextricably linked with strivings for excellence in gospel living. Parents and those teaching Church classes will find the style and emphasis of this book both refreshing and rewarding.
