With all the reading I have to do this semester, I wanted to go on and get a jump on it early! For my Church Education class I had to read a book called “Light Their Fire” by Leonard Allred, which was a professor at my school Piedmont Baptist College! In this book, Allread gives twenty-nine “matches” that one can use in a class to light a fire in adults through teaching them! All of Allread’s suggestions or “matches” in this book are very good. With his education background and many years of teaching adults, the suggestions in this book are trustworthy and a “must use” in any teaching situation! Though I am majoring in youth ministry with hopes of being a youth pastor, the “matches” in this book are useful also for me because these “matches” can also be used in teaching teens and young adults! If you are a teacher of adults or even teens, this book is a must read! It is an easy read and a good book to get you excited about teaching and lighting a fire for God to whomever you are teaching!
