Publishers Description
This book is thoroughly original work on the meaning of teaching by one who has been widely credited with reshaping the field of religious education in the United States, and to have had a significant effect also in many other countries. Despite a steady flow of books that have "teaching" in the title, nearly all of them leave out most of the story. In Showing How, Gabriel Moran presents the full story of the act of teaching. Part 1 establishes a fundamental meaning for "to teach," examining why there exists a deep-seated fear that teaching is an immoral act. Professor Moran then grounds the meaning of "to teach in its most basic forms, moving from examples in the nonhuman world (what the mountain teaches the mountain climber) to communal and nonverbal forms of teaching among humans. Part 2 explores the languages of teaching and the diverse forms of speech appropriate to teaching; rhetorical forms, including storytelling and preaching; therapeutic languages; and religion'' preservation of these languages in ritualized settings, including confessing and mourning. Part 3 draws out the implications for education, the school, and the teaching of morality. Showing How addresses not only schoolteachers but parents, counselors, ministers, administrators, and everyone who can recognize teaching as a fundamental human act. By exposing the root meaning of teaching, the book represents a challenge to any proposals for educational reform. Gabriel Moran is Professor and Director of Religious Education in the Department of Culture and Communication, New York University. He is the author of sixteen books, including Uniqueness: Problem or Paradox in Jewish and Christian Traditions and A Grammar of Responsibility.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Contextually Not Impressed  Jan 11, 2005
Guess my being the 1st reviewer may be a tip off that this isn't the greatest thing since sliced bread. Then again, I had to buy it for my Master's and I had 10 other books calling my name, three of which I found so intersting and relevant that this one took a back seat because the others were so fantastic.

Of course, how many teachers are out there who want a religiously orientated book? I'm really not sure. If you do fit in this category, you may want to try it out. What's the worst that could possibly happen? You tell everyone it was a waste and ignore the author completely?
