A study of the principles involved in a Christian philosophy of learning and teaching, and an evaluation of models for Bible lesson plans. The course includes instruction on how to outline Bible studies based upon a textual message or topical message format.

It exposes the student to “block diagramming” to help the student learn how to spot the main themes of larger narratives.
