I graduated from seminary, but didn't know how to teach the information I had learned. Dr. Wilkinson has outdone himself with the 7 Laws of the Learner. If you want to teach so that your students will walk out of your class knowing how to apply what you've taught to their life, this is a must. Don't just teach information -- teach people what to do with it.

We have been taught how to teach incorrectly. This book gives us the basic principles necessary to teach, not only Sunday school, but any subject that someone needs to learn. These principles are timeless and foundational to every classroom setting.

Format: Hardcover
Three years ago, our church of about 1,000 set about to reinvent itself within our Christian Education department. At about 26,000 feet flying somewhere over Arizona, I was shaken while reading it for the first time. It shocked me into realizing how really boring many teachers can communicate without anyone learning anything...always pushing content while omitting any application or creativity to ensure learning. These principles revitalized my own teaching, and I have used it as our core curriculum for the 15 teachers we have in our education department. Our teachers have come up with some great classes as well as creative ideas in their professional/occupational lives as a result of this book.

Going on year three, we stand by this book as the best-of-class, and continue using its principles weekly. We now have a growing and alive ministry, and can honestly say this book began it all. This book is a "must" if you want to change lives vs. "cover" the material.

As someone who sat under Bruce Wilkinson during his college classes, I really wanted to read this book. It's not that I'm a teacher now, but I serve in a project management role.

A lot of the information taught in this book relates to working with people. Some of the information I need is from my technical staff - my role in learning. Some of the information I need is to be taught to the everyday user - the my role in teaching. While "Loving your students unconditionally" may not apply in the real world, it actually does.

I find my co-workers respond better to someone who cares about them then by someone who is just doing the work.

A must read book!

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Nathan Parker on August 26, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book on teaching methodology. The title is a bit of a misnomer - in this book Bruce deals with the seven most important laws for the teacher to understand. I have been a teacher for close to 10 years and have never thought of a lot of these things, much less been taught them by anyone!
The only drawbacks are that the book is way too long (it's about 500 pages, when it could probably be written in 150) and there are definitely points of his theology that I differ with... But all in all this book is fantastic and very worth reading. With the publishing of the "health and wealth message" presented in the Prayer of Jabez series I had no idea that Bruce Wilkinson could write anything good...this book proved me wrong.

I am a freshman in college and am in the Secondary English track. This book is actually one of our textbooks, and it is by far my favorite book! If you want to become a master teacher, read this book and apply its principles. All my former teachers are getting this book from me for Christmas this year!

Format: Hardcover
This book and the accompanying video series was presented to our church recently. Our group consisted of housewives, businessmen, pastors, students, farmers, etc....and everyone learned something! The Bible truths and practical lessons were "right on!" - and applied to every age group and to every walk of life. This is an investment which will be a resource you will refer to many times and one that will continue to "teach" each time you use it.

The Seven Laws of the Learner, by Bruce Wilkinson came highly recommended. I've taught for 16 years, and I was eager to learn from what my department head said, "A highly regarded teacher. If I were you, I would get the book. You NEED to read it."

So, I bought it, and now I question my purchase.

Firstly, there was a large proportion of anecdotes. I found this odd, as Laws should be clarified and supported with substantial data, before tossing in personal stories; the stories make for an exciting read, but on one hand, it can make the Law appear more situational, than an actual Law. The story of his professor stomping down the aisle after he purposely 'tested' his professor by gazing out the window (he was timing his professor on how long he could stand it if a student was not paying attention), made me wonder if Mr Wilkinson had ever taught in a 'real' classroom. I think Junior Highers would actually find this entertaining--the professor would have a daily workout!
Secondly, since this book is written by a Christian author, I expected more from a Christian perspective, especially some parallelism with the Greatest Teacher: Jesus Christ. As I read further, I kept telling myself, "But this isn't how Jesus taught!" If the teacher was 100% responsible for his students learning, then why would the Greatest Teacher say such statements as "Oh you of little faith!" or more sobering "I tell you the truth, it will be better for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of Judgement, than for you!" I have never read that Jesus put pressure on Himself for his disciples nor the crowds not getting it. Neither should any teacher take on such a daunting task.

I imagine that if I took this book seriously, I would quickly hit burn-out.
