    I had high expectations for this book given the title. What I encountered was "academic bloviating." The book is filled with undefined or poorly defined principles or concepts, and is rather vague. (It reminds me of the old Dilbert Mission Statement Generator.) Some of the undefined or poorly defined terms include "Chalcedonian form," "Galilean principle," "educational trinity," "trinitarian grammar," "huddling," "mixing," and more. One can eventually figure out some of the terms as reading goes I had high expectations for this book given the title. What I encountered was "academic bloviating."

Some of the undefined or poorly defined terms include "Chalcedonian form," "Galilean principle," "educational trinity," "trinitarian grammar," "huddling," "mixing," and more. One can eventually figure out some of the terms as reading goes on, but then there is no explanation for how these terms actually find their root or explanation in the Scripture. There is also incessant references to his own works or to others works. Normally I like this, but his use of this technique is bad for two reasons. First, many of these references should just be relegated to footnotes. And second, the references either don't add anything to the conversation, or fail to do so because they are not explained. He sort of assumes that you've read the books too and know what he's talking about. The main argument of the book is expressed in the 6 chapter titles... namely... 1. The trinity is an example of what to base our teaching model on. Teaching is expressing content to persons in context. 2. Sin has marred our existence and thus needs to be dealt with by salvation. In our teaching we are always mindful of our limitations and need for salvation. 3. Jesus is the master teacher leaving us with great examples in both his life and teachings. 4. The Holy Spirit works in us to help us overcome sin and to teach with power. 5. The church is the framework within which we carry out our teaching to the world. 6. Eschatology moves us to be driven and impassioned as we teach because we have a living hope in which we live and teach. If this were not a required book for my class, I would have stopped reading at the first chapter. I don't like to give negative reviews, but I really can't recommend this book.
