This is a book rich in both practical ideas for teaching and insights into teaching as a Christian calling. While it is not a book on teaching theory, the discerning reader will recognize sound theoretical reflections underlying its practice-oriented approach. The author's Christian commitment is made clear in many ways, but two features stand out. One is the way in which a piety that recognizes the reality of God's presence and our dependence on him is embedded in a down-to-earth approach to the everyday issues of teaching practice. The other is that the author clearly presents himself, not as the ultimate authority, but as a fellow servant of the Lord with his readers. It is a rich resource from which novice and the most experienced teacher alike will benefit.
