A Guidebook for the Journey
Author: Sylvia Artmann
Publisher: Inspiring Voices
Called to Teach meets the critical needs of those of you who have decided that you want to teach, yet are unwilling or unable to pursue the standard elementary teacher certification. Some of you may be on the verge of completing a college degree for which you cannot find employment, and have been offered a job teaching at the elementary school of your local church. Others, unwilling to go through the currently popular “shortcut” methods of Alternative Certification, sense the great need for Christian teachers in public schools as a calling for Christian service. Desiring to show yourselves as “workmen approved,” you seek instruction that is both practical and grounded in the Christian calling by which you are led. Are you one of the burgeoning numbers of Christian parents who have decided to home-school your children? Although dedicated and bright, you may nevertheless be unaware of ways to use the latest research to further your children’s educational development. Essential principles for every part of the elementary school curriculum are included, as well as suggestions for organizing time and materials and the nurturing of self-discipline in your child. Called to Teach contains information on developmental expectations for children from age three through ten years of age, along with the latest research on methods to effectively engage each age in a variety of curriculum experiences to produce lifetime learners. The motivation of inspiration from scripture is maintained throughout; emphasizing that any effective teaching method must relate to children as God created them, and that all truth is God’s truth. Each chapter has a keynote scripture, and other relevant scriptures are quoted as appropriate. All subjects of the curriculum for age-three through sixth-grade are covered from research-based methods to practical teaching tips. By the final chapter the reader will emerge as being “fully equipped” for answering God’s call to teach.

A Call to Great Commission Obedience
Author: M. David Sills
Publisher: Moody Publishers
Most Christians know and understand that we are to seek to reach the lost around the world. Yet, Christ's command to us is more specific and calls us to a higher standard of involvement with the peoples of the world. He has called the church to make disciples of all people groups and to teach them to observe all He commanded us (Matthew 28:18-20). In recent years mission agencies and missionaries have increasingly shifted away from discipleship and teaching toward an emphasis upon evangelism and church planting—many to the exclusion of any other field activity. While evangelism and church planting are essential components of a biblical missions program, they are not sufficient for the complete task to which we have been called. Reaching and Teaching examines the task Christ gave in the Great Commission and redefines the task of missions from that which is currently prevalent. It surveys missions strategies and methodologies that have increasingly replaced Christ’s Great Commission instructions even as they have sought to fulfill it. It is a clarion call to return to the biblical task of reaching and teaching the nations for Christ’s sake.
An Introduction to Doctrinal Theology
Author: Steven P. Mueller
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
Called to Believe, Teach, and Confess offers an overview of the major doctrines of Christianity in a comprehensive, but accessible way. Written from a Lutheran perspective, this book is a helpful resource to those within that tradition and to others who seek a deeper theological understanding. Firmly rooted in Scripture, this book emphasizes the interrelatedness of all Christian teaching, with its central teaching being the doctrine of justification by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. This book is ideal as a text for university students and other educated Christian adults who seek to expand their knowledge of God's revelation and its application in human lives. It introduces and uses classical theological vocabulary and terminology, while offering clear definitions and application. Key terms, study questions, glossary, and sidebars help make this a valuable resource. Suggested readings from Scripture, the Lutheran Confessions and other secondary sources guide the reader into deeper study.

Author: Anious Yeakey

The Lord impressed upon my heart to write this book to encourage women in all walks of life who are faced with the challenge of leadership. Whether you are a mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, daughter, a teacher, a preacher or pastor, CEO, etc., we need to know that whatever title we hold was not given to us by man but the Almighty God. This book was written to build women up in leadership, not in their abilities but their God-given abilities; to open the doors of new founding faith in God; and to trust the godly training we have been taught by our many mentors. Women in godly leadership, we should walk by faith and not by sight with our heads up high, always looking to Jesus who is the author and the finisher of our most holy faith.

Empowering Women to Teach the Scriptures Effectively
Author: Jackie Roese
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
Conservative evangelical women are least likely to be trained in the areas of teaching and preaching. It's a tragic state of affairs, given the central value that our tradition places on the Scriptures. In this book, Jackie Roese examines the forces, both past and present, that have discouraged women from becoming trained. We'll discover that women are indeed called, gifted, and mandated in Scripture to herald the Word of God. The first half of the book will focus on encouraging women to become as fully equipped as our male counterparts, and to use their uniquely female voice in proclaiming truth to other women in various settings outside pulpit preaching. But encouragement isn't enough. Many women who already teach Bible studies, or who desire to teach, are in no position to pursue formal studies in a seminary. To that end, the second half of She Can Teach is dedicated to developing homiletic skills. Together we will learn how to study a passage, find the main idea, and build and deliver a biblical message. By the end of this book, the reader will be better equipped to proclaim truth, through her uniquely female voice, to her female audience.
The Call of God on a Woman's Life
Author: Elaine Rose Penn
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
There are thousands of great women of God who were pioneers of the faith and the gospel. Though many of their names are lost to us forever, the record of their exploits for the sake of the Kingdom are engraved in the eternal and living chronicles of heaven. They represent the hues and colors of Gods rainbow and are present in the history of every denomination, faith and religion. Women have dug out churches, cleaned them, closed them and built them. They were visionaries, ground-breakers, pathfinders, the bridges that brought us over, trend-setters, armor-bearers, leaders, agents for change and disciples. They cooked, cried, sang, marched, testified, organized, did the holy dance, counseled, and prayed while everybody else slept. They carried the "work" on their bare knuckles, tear drops, hips, lips and hearts. In the pages of this delightful book filled with powerful scriptural revelation, candor, insight and instruction, Elaine Rose Penn delivers a challenge to women called to the gospel ministry to be true to their femininity, and adhere to a high standard of excellence and accountability in the conduct of their service to Christ.
