I fully expect to write another review of success. But the best part is the God-centered, solid bible teaching that is used to teach English! May many grow in love for God; may many become worshippers through this book! Which is even better than mastery of Eglish!
This book may work as a grammar reference for advanced ESL students, if the teacher wants to pick and choose pages to use in class. Also, some of the basic vocabulary pages could be used with beginning level students, but you would have to be careful not to confuse or discourage them with the more difficult content.
In general I did not care for the presentation of the Biblical content, as it seemed to jump back and forth between stories in the Old and New Testaments. However, there were a few pages that I did like, that seemed at an appropriate level for ESL students. I liked the story of the Good Samaritan on pg. 71 and the attributes of God on pg. 128. I suppose some of the Biblical content could be used as a reference for students, when level appropriate.
My favorite part of the book is the last section, written for teachers, with various classroom activities. There's a lot of good ideas here that I think would go over well in the classroom.
My suggestion for an ESL teacher looking to incorporate Biblical content into an ESL class would be to make use of some great resources in the students' native language, such as the film "The Hope" or "The Jesus film." Also, bilingual Bibles can be used in an ESL class as a great way to help students understand the Bible in their native language.
