Israel Galindo provides the Christian educator with the perspective and the tools to be truly effective as a small study group leader. This book will equip you to:
- create learning objectives
- understand group dynamics
- discern learning styles within the group
- develop the right questions for group interaction.
- assess your own effectiveness as a leader
Galindo discusses these and other topics in the pursuit of a learning approach that achieves the ultimate goal of Christian education: to bring faith to life. A sample topical Bible study and examples of small group study are included.
"Not only will this book help a small group leader to use effective planning processes and methods, but it will help educators, pastors, and lay leaders to re-think how they teach, how people learn, and assist them in moving beyond what Dr. Galindo calls the 'deadly null-expectancy factor.'" —The Education Connection, Association of United Church Educators
"This book is adult Christian education at its best! A must-have study for teacher training (either in a group or individual setting), it challenges teachers—and then shows them how—to move out of their comfort zones of teacher-centered approaches into dialogical or learner-centered approaches." —Jackie Riley, Baptists Today, April 2007
"Here is a helpful reference tool for small-group leaders...Each chapter is packed with biblically sound insights and information."—Church Libraries, Spring 2007
