Carr, Amy; Simmons, John K. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2010
Two troublesome portraits of religious studies professors often exist in the minds of some students at any given time: the Guru, or wise spiritual teacher, and the Deceiver.

My thoughts on the teaching of this course in my own context are organized…

Resner, Andre – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2010
M.Div. programs sequence curriculum in order to cumulatively build competencies for wise, faithful, reflective, appropriate and effective ministerial practices.
