About This Book
In her debut title, Gerene Joseph, an Educator with over 35 years' experience, delves into 30 questions posited by Jesus, the MASTER teacher.
A Modern Twist!
The book's architecture is unique and the author takes a modern approach to biblical questions like, "Who touched my clothes?" (Mark 5:30) and, "What do you want me to do for you?" (Matt. 20:32) through the lens of a 21st century instructor!
Meat Of The Matter
Each chapter is meant to challenge thought and broaden the understanding of educators - both in the classroom and on the track of life. Captivating in both content and presentation, the volume is written in Socratic style, a teaching method favored by Jesus that has captivated audiences throughout the ages.
