A way to engage kids with scripture stories, based on the Montessori method, to build a Christian education that endures beyond Sunday school.
 
Children learn through play. Understanding this basic premise, Rev. Jerome Berryman adapted techniques from the Montessori teaching method to develop an imaginative approach to telling scripture stories to children in a way that is at once playful and meaningful to them. Outlining specific storytelling techniques and demonstrating how to use story figures and other creative activities, Rev. Berryman models how to awaken children’s curiosity and imagination to create a personal experience of the Gospel.
 
Incorporating up-to-date research in childhood development and instruction, Teaching Godly Play is a practical and effective handbook for religious educators to facilitate a warm and compelling experience of the scriptures for children of all ages.
