The Alphabet of Errors: How to Teach the Bible Better

With over 30 years of teaching experience, Dr. Rick Jordan has learned what works - and what does not - in leading a Bible study. Using the alphabet, Dr. Jordan itemizes 26 errors common to Bible study teachers - such as the first three chapters on Assumptions, Bullies, and Calling on the Introvert. With humor, humility, and wisdom, the book promises to help the beginning teacher get off to a good start and to help the good teacher become a great teacher.
