Teaching Bible and theology in a classical school comes with its own peculiar set of challenges. To what extent should a Bible/theology teacher be sensitive to the diverse that inform her students’ understanding of their faith? What is the best way to address controversial subjects in a Bible/theology classroom? What does it meant to teach the Bible classically? How can a robust Bible/theology curriculum cultivate Christian practice and thought? This session is a panel discussion gathers Bible and theology teachers from classical schools to discuss these questions and more. In addition to the content of the panel discussion, it is hoped that this session will be a catalyst for Bible/theology teachers to meet and discuss their vocation together.
