On this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I talk with David Garner of Westminster Theological Seminary. We discuss what it takes to be clear as a teacher, how to lead in situations where participants want to take the discussion in a direction away from the text, and how our sense of the authority of Scripture impacts what and how we teach.
Garner is the editor of Did God Really Say? Affirming the Truthfulness and Trustworthiness of Scripture. His lectures on the authority of Scripture from Westminster’s Full Confidence conference are available online. Additionally, his article “High Stakes: Insider Movement Hermeneutics and the Gospel” appeared in the July 2012 edition of Themelios.
