Delnay, Teach as He Taught, Quotable

Robert Delnay, Teach as He Taught: How to Apply Jesus’ Teaching Methods.  (Quotes from the Moody Press 1987 edition)

“If we attempt to teach without first meeting God, we may still find ways to impress the students, but we will not impress God.” (14-15)

“If a lecture does not have time to marinate, don’t expect it to be well-seasoned.” (31)

“But even when they try our patience, we must remember that if we ever humiliate a student, we lose him — and most of the class — and we may forfeit our chance to teach him anything.  Only a frank apology before the class can restore our moral credit.” (34)

“The beginning of clarity comes in the teacher’s determination that his people understand, not that he just cover the material.” (36)
