Are you a bridge builder?
Communicating the Scriptures is much like building a bridge. However, instead of ravines or rivers, the teacher must span both cultural boundaries and great gulfs of time between the present and the past of Moses, David, Jesus, and Paul.
God's Word is "living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword" (Hebrews 4:12). It is contemporary and relevant. But it is the teacher who has the task of helping the student to see its vast treasures. This is no easy task, but it can be done through creative Bible teaching.
Together, Richards and Bredfeldt have written a book on bridge-building that reveals a detailed five-step process by which Christian educators can construct a bridge across time, geography, and culture.
Simple, clear, and memorable, the method laid out in Creative Bible Teaching gives a sure-fire way to communicate God's Word in a way that sticks.
