Item Description...
Overview
In this important and groundbreaking book, Richard Osmer develops a practical theology of the teaching ministry. He begins by exploring the teaching ministry of the apostle Paul, identifying in Paul's letters to his congregations the core tasks of the teaching ministry: catechesis, exhortation, and discernment. Next he presents cast studies of the teaching ministries of three contemporary congregations, one in the United States, one in Korea, and one in South Africa, developing interpretive perspectives on the teaching ministry. Finally he focuses on the development of action-guiding models and guidelines, and explores helpful methods for guiding the teaching ministries of one's own particular congregation.

This long-awaited textbook will become a classic in Christian education courses in seminaries as well as in Christian certification courses.

Publishers Description
In The Teaching Ministry of Congregations, Richard Osmer gives historical background and develops a practical theology of the teaching ministry for contemporary communities of faith. He begins by exploring the importance of the teaching ministry of the apostle Paul and his congregations, arguing that three teaching practices can be detected in his letters: catechesis - handing on Israel's scripture and early Christian tradition; exhortation - the moral formation of these communities through the imitation of moral exemplars and the study of moral teachings; and discernment - teaching the members of these communities how to determine God's will in the face of controversial and confusing issues emerging in their life. He views these three teaching tasks as essential to the teaching ministries of Christian congregations across the ages, but also as demanding a process of contextualization in different social and historical contexts. He then presents case studies of the teaching ministries of three contemporary congregations, one in the US, one in Korea, and one in South Africa. Finally, he explores what it means for congregations to find their own particular stories within the theodr

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Surprisingly interesting.  Nov 10, 2007
The combination of teaching how to teach scripture by using scripture makes for an interesting read. Be prepared for the small print, however.
 
Honest Discussion of Difficult Topic  Oct 1, 2007
Although Osmer bases his conclusions on his theological presuppositions, he is honest enough to admit this upfront and clearly spell out his presuppositions. Working within this framework, Osmer draws out a threefold approach to Christian education, based on the teaching ministry of Paul. At times, Osmer is a bit technical, but overall this book is a helpful and practical guide for congregations serious about dialoguing on educational ministries. This book is most useful if read in conjunction with Osmer's earlier work: The Teaching Office of the Church.
