An Integral Resource and Guide for our Book Study
Thank you for sharing Bringing Christ to the Classroom with MidAmerica Nazarene University’s Teacher Education Department. As with every good and perfect gift, it arrived at the perfect time in our program’s reimagining. It will guide our book study next semester and serve as an integral resource in the development of our department’s ‘Faith Integration’ learning outcomes.

All Christian Educators Should Read this Work
Professor Dunn has brought to light the teaching methodology of the most important teacher of all time—Jesus Christ. I believe all Christian educators should read this work and incorporate it into their daily lives as instructors of truth. Teaching is a calling and Christian educators need to be strong in their faith to fulfill this important calling on their lives.

A Powerful Resource to Equip Teachers
Bringing Christ to the Classroom is a powerful resource for any Christian called to be an educator in our public schools. This Bible study can help equip teachers to live out a biblical worldview in the classroom every day. I believe the public schools are a mission field for all believers and living out the Truth from God’s perspective is a legal and effective form of evangelism.

Unique Insights for Teachers
Bringing Christ to the Classroom is an important book for anyone who is an educator. No matter who you teach or your setting, Charissa’s unique insights will be valuable. They’ll encourage you and inspire you.
Learning more about Jesus is always good. For educators to see Him as our Teacher enriches our relationship with Him and empowers us in our ministries. Reading familiar Bible passages and applying them to our ministry with Charissa’s excellent direction will increase their relevance. The Scripture will be personal and practical. Because she motivates you toward relevant takeaways, you and your students will benefit from your reading of this book. Charissa understands you. She’s a teacher, too. I believe you’ll come back to these pages often to consider her golden nuggets. I know I will.
