A God who speaks and acts: theology for teachers in Lutheran schools  

By Rev Dr Malcolm Bartsch [now available]

Rev Dr Malcolm Bartsch’s latest book, A God who speaks and acts: theology for teachers in Lutheran schools, just been released.  In this book, Malcolm has captured and included not only his own wisdom and rich experience in Lutheran education, but has intelligently and effectively included the thoughts of several significant Lutheran educators and theologians. People such as Zweck, Koch, Hauser, Hebart and Jennings – deep thinkers in the Australian Lutheran context – add to Malcolm’s writings and provide a most worthwhile and thorough theological journey for teachers in Lutheran schools to venture into. Even more so, Martin Luther’s writings on Lutheran education and theology are inexorably intertwined into this well written dialogue. This enables the reader to be taken deep into Lutheran theology and, in the case of the Lutheran teacher, to identify their own and their school’s raison d’être.

 

The book contains the theological essentials for Lutheran educators and is written in a way which is not only understandable but can be applied in the daily challenges of school teaching, learning and planning.
