Teacher Training Resources for Getting People into the Word
The benefits of the Bible as a source of authority and hope in students' lives is obvious. -- "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (2 Tim. 3:16-17) Teachers need to learn to get beyond spoon-feeding students to helping students study the Word on their own.
