Format: Paperback
Barbara Bruce takes Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory seriously and tries to apply it to the task of teaching the Bible to adults. Although her book is modest (112 pages including appendices), she does a nice job of presenting a usable tool for Bible teachers of adult learners.

Multiple Intelligence theory argues that there are at least seven different brain based types of intelligence: verbal/linguistic, logical/mathematical, spatial, bodily/kinesthetic, musical, intrapersonal, and interpersonal. Everyone possesses some ability in each of these areas, but everyone tends to favor one or two over the other areas. The tendency has been to treat all adult learners as preferring verbal/linguistic intelligence and the chosen teaching method has been lecture. Bruce presents a chapter on each of the types of intelligence, providing an overview and making suggestions for teaching/learning activity that is oriented towards that type of intelligence. She does well in her application of the theory in the Adult Bible class environment.

One of the problems found in application of Multiple Intelligence Theory is the attempt to either include all seven types of intelligence in a lesson plan or to orient teaching towards one specific intelligence to the exclusion of all others. The first is impossible to do without creating an incredibly messy lesson plan that accomplishes nothing. The latter creates a lesson plan that usually one student (or fewer) enjoys. Bruce's techniques are much more "hybrid" in their approach--while a technique may be mathematical/logical there will be secondary elements of other intelligences as well. (A "MI" purist might criticize her techniques for this, but, in fact, most normal activity involves a variety of the intelligences.

I have known about Howard Gardner's intelligences and taught on them in Australia, but the book brought a refreshing and focused element to the MI in light of bible studies and specific application in this area. Recommend for people wanting first time introduction, as reference materials in not just bible studies but other areas of training in the class or at home. Great.

I love this book and think that everyone who teaches Bible study or leads a small group should read it. It will challenge you and raise the bar on your teaching skills.

I loved the way the author included so many ways to teach so many. Not just the normal verbal linguistic students but all of us who learn in other ways.
