Book Summary of Heart Deep Teaching by Gary C. Newton


Teaching is not an activity of information transfer but of transformation. Teaching should help people understand and apply God’s Word to their whole person. This begins with the teacher. They need to understand the principles they are going to teach, and they also need to apply them to their own lives. The task of teaching is more difficult when the teacher does not do this because they cannot ask or expect others to do what they will not do. 

Heart deep teaching happens when the student is connected and invested in the truth of Scripture as much as possible. This can happen in a variety of ways. Small groups and helping students discover the truth of Scripture for themselves and how it should be applied to their lives are two key ways that lives are transformed through teaching.

“The goal of teaching is to engage the learner in following Christ at the deepest level possible as he or she grows in Christlikeness.” (p. 1)
