Summary

Christine Blair clearly outlines a plan for motivating adults to use the tools and theological principles necessary to interpret biblical texts for themselves. She proposes the "five R's" model for teaching--remembering, revisiting, reflecting, reinterpreting, and responding--and notes educational ingredients that must be intermixed in every teaching strategy.
