How do we bring the light of God’s word into our daily classroom experience? Dan encourages us to look beyond mere factual knowledge, and to build a culture of the fear of God. “Before obedience,” says Dan, “there has to be a posture of listening.”
To illustrate this culture of hearing God’s word, Dan offers two models. One is Os Guinness’ three levels of reality: objective, descriptive, and prescriptive. The second model contrasts a boundaries approach with a wisdom approach.
It is our opportunity to guide our students in applying the wisdom of Scripture to issues, even when Scripture does not offer explicit rules for the subject.
