Tab Name:
Jesus: The Master Teacher

This book doesn't focus on what Christ taught, but how he taught. Dr. Horne’s purpose in writing this book is to show why Jesus was a great teacher and how you can apply it to your own teaching.

Horne, a Harvard professor and foremost expert in education, analytically examines Christ's methods of teaching to draw lessons on human behavior. No one has written a more penetrating study of Jesus as teacher.

Cyril Barber, in The Minister's Library, regards this book as "most important and worthy of acquisition"

"Pastors today need to learn from the teaching techniques of Jesus Christ. This book ... deserves a place on every pastor's desk."

Now regarded as Herman Harrell Horne's biggest contribution, this work has been popular in religious and evangelical circles for decades.

Horne's thought provoking questions for the reader, as well as his depth and methods of study, catch the fascination and imagination of seriousBible students.

The purpose of the book was first to show how Jesus taught and secondly, "to influence our own methods of teaching morals and religion" (Horne, 1920, p. x). The focus of the book is not on content but on the "form in which this content is cast" (p. xi).

The book was republished in 1964 under the title, Teaching Techniques of Jesus, by Kregel Publications House, and has greatly influenced evangelical Christendom, perhaps even more than most modern-day Christians realize. Later in the 1990s, the book was again republished by Kregel as, Jesus the Teacher: Examining His Expertise in Education.

About Herman Horne
Herman Harrell Horne (1874-1946), an American philosopher and educator, was a leading spokesman for philosophical idealism in educational theory and practice during the first half of the twentieth century. Although he did not profess to write theological works, he advocated a spiritual and religious approach to education. He was a serious educator and a thoughtful Christian.

Horne’s teaching career spanned forty-three years in three universities. In addition to his regular academic posts, he also lectured at numerous leading colleges, universities, and seminaries.

Herman Horne was one of America’s most outstanding educational thinkers in his day. As a scholar, a philosopher, a gentleman, and a Christian, perhaps he was best known for his vigorous opposition to John Dewey and progressive education. While Dewey was one of the leading proponents of Instrumentalism, Horne was a leading representative of the Idealistic philosophy of education, a school of thought that dominated American philosophy from the mid-nineteenth century well into the twentieth century.
