Matheson, Peter (1990) The Teaching of Church History.

Full text not available from this repository.


Too often the teaching of theology becomes a specialised, purely professional occupation, or, on the other hand, a confessional or utilitarian exercise. We need to rediscover a way of teaching which involves the whole person. One way forward in church history may be to use dramatic techniques such as role-play. These techniques are particularly helpful in bridging the imaginative chasm between, for example, our modern Pacific society and early Church History.
