This course focuses on teaching the Bible in congregations and in the community. It seeks to open the Bible to laypersons so that persons can live out a vital faith. The course is ?project focused.? Students will complete a peer teaching practicum examining some of the key approaches to teaching the Bible in the church: exegetical, historical, devotional, cultural, feminist, womanist, social justice, missional, cross-cultural, and interfaith. We will learn together and assess the effectiveness of these approaches as we discover and critically examine our own approaches to the Bible.
