Brief Description

Nothing Never Happens: Experiential Learning and the Church by beloved Christian educator, pastor, and author John Hendrix is the book his generations of students and readers have long-awaited. Hendrix reveals exciting connections between learning theory and biblical interpretation, nudging Christians to discover a fresh way to teach and learn from scripture. A stimulating read for educators, ministers and lifelong learners. As C. Edward Richardson writes, “Hendrix pulls back the curtain of routine teaching so we can see that teaching and biblical interpretation has a lot more to do with mystery and incarnation than it does with learning styles or bible dictionaries and commentaries.”
