Join us for November’s online seminar:
Shaping a Biblical Worldview Through the Study of Literature
Presenter: Mark Ward Jr.
When: Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 2:30 p.m. EST
(11:30 a.m. PST)
Teaching literature at home can be easy. Students may read stories, learn literary vocabulary, and answer comprehension questions for literature class. But when Christian homeschoolers attempt to connect Scripture with the literature, they feel that their attempts are superficial. How can they better connect the two?
During this seminar, Mark Ward will explain how developing the tools of the literary discipline relates to the study of God’s Word. He will also talk about how literature can be used to remind students to love God and others and how literature can be used for God’s glory through reading, evaluation, and rebuilding.
Mark Ward Jr. is a Bible textbook author at BJU Press. He has written Bible materials for various secondary grade levels during which time he also worked on the Bible Integration Team. He has a PhD in New Testament Interpretation and is currently developing ways to integrate faith and learning into the instruction of literature. Join Mark for this month’s seminar on Shaping a Biblical Worldview Through the Study of Literature.
