It is not enough to teach what Jesus taught; we must teach how Jesus taught. Jesus taught in such a way as to turn the world upside down.
Jesus didn’t have an outreach program. He didn’t do marketing. He didn’t contact absentees. He didn’t seem to worry about attendance. And yet they came. Boy, did they come.
I have spent the last twelve years crisscrossing the country telling groups how they can double every two years or less. Occasionally, I visit classes. Often, they are good, but all too often it doesn’t take too much effort to see why Sunday School is failing—and this is a problem an outreach program will not solve. They are failing because the teaching is crummy. It is nowhere close to what I describe in You Can Double Your Class in Two Years or Less as “half-way decent teaching.” It is in a different time zone from the teaching of Jesus.
This book is an effort to examine the teaching style of Jesus with a view to helping teachers teach more like Jesus. Who wouldn’t want that?
“No one ever taught like Jesus. When we learn from Him we truly are learning from the Master Teacher. Josh Hunt is uniquely qualified to help us teach like Jesus because these are the practices he has personally used for years! Anyone who wants to become a better teacher must have this book!”

I have had the pleasure of hearing Josh teach this material in person and I can assure you that it always has an impact on the audience. It is both entertaining and informative. It will challenge you to communicate more effectively. It is biblically based and practically oriented. Your teaching will be improved if you follow the suggestions included in these pages. Here’s the good news. The book is as entertaining and informative as the live presentation! Buy it! Read it! Teach like Jesus!

When it comes to teaching the Bible, nobody knows his stuff any better than Josh Hunt. Josh’s new book, Teach Like Jesus, is a must read for every pastor, Sunday School director, minister of education, and Sunday School teacher out there. Josh combines years of experience, biblical analysis, and spiritual insight to provide a resource for teachers in the 21st century. But Teach Like Jesus is not just a book about theory. Woven throughout the book are practical ideas of how to put concept into reality.
