About this book

Based on the teachings of Jesus and a biblical foundation, this book presents a new framework for education and teaching, referred to as the shalom education model, that addresses four essential questions in education (why teach, what to teach, how to teach and who are teachers?). After explaining the theoretical background of shalom, the book investigates a range of contemporary educational issues including gender identity, bullying, disability, linguistic and cultural diversity, and social justice, and presents practical guidelines that can be applied to classroom teaching. The book also emphasizes the role of teachers as missional leaders who help students unlock their full potential.

Reviews

“A book on the pedagogy of shalom by Christian scholars also experienced as k-12 teachers is a welcome addition to the discourse in societies and schools that more and more are characterized by conflict, violence and hatred. Because The Pedagogy of Shalom keeps clearly in mind classrooms where the preeminence of Christ may not be recognized and sometimes cannot be voiced, it will be welcome in the Christian international schools with whom I work since many of the students we serve are not from a Christian background. It should be welcome in any Christian school or educational endeavor where the fragrance of shalom should waft heavenward.” (Dr. Phil Bassett, Director of Teacher Training, International Schools of China (Beijing, China), Leadership Development International (LDi))

“Education is God’s primary business to enlighten us in a dark age such as this. Christian teachers need to be equipped with sound biblical knowledge and transformative competencies that are shown in this book in order to become the difference makers that God commanded. This book is truly a must-read by all Christian educators, parents and administrators.” (Seung An Im, Ph.D., President, Korea Nazarene University (Cheon-An, South Korea) )

“This book is based on current research and educational theories that provide both theological understanding and research-based tools for successful classroom faith integration.  Whether they teach in a public, private, or Christian school setting, the book provides Christian teachers with a foundational understanding of and practical advice for the effective integration of faith with methodologies across a broad range of student populations and classroom settings.  This book should be in every Christian teacher’s library.” (Donnie Peal, Ed.D., Executive Director, Oral Roberts University Educational Fellowship (ORUEF), International Christian Accrediting Association (ICAA))
