Do you wonder why your efforts to teach the Faith seem to have so little effect? Are you in a teaching rut, suffering from inertia or burnout? Do you want to find a way to increase your momentum and enthusiasm for teaching?
This, Nathan Rutstein’s second book on teaching the Faith, offers insights and observations gained from personal experience since the publication of Spirit in Action: Teaching the Bahá'í Faith. Purposely avoiding discussion of teaching methods, he focuses instead on identifying and overcoming personal barriers to teaching and on developing oneself spiritually so the desire to teach will spring from within.
Real life experiences that nearly every Bahá'í will relate to illustrate personal challenges and difficulties that must be surmounted if we are to become more effective teachers of our Faith. The proposed solutions are drawn from the Bahá'í sacred writings and shared with empathy, for Nathan Rutstein freely admits that many of his insights are the result of learning from his own mistakes in the teaching field. With refreshing candor he discusses obstacles to teaching and shines a light on the path toward spiritual growth and continuous teaching victories.
