Not only has the Lord commanded us to teach, but He has taught us what we are to teach and how we are to do it: diligently and by the power of the Spirit. But how do we know if we're "doing it right"? What signs can we watch for that the Spirit is actually present in a teaching setting?
In this insightful companion volume to Hearing the Voice of the Lord, bestselling author Gerald N. Lund brings his decades of experience working in the Church Educational System to the topic of teaching and learning by the Spirit. He discusses common misconceptions, important questions we should ask about our teaching, and the role of the Holy Ghost in the process.
"The Lord has given the responsibility to save His children to teachers," writes Elder Lund. "The charge is clear. It is specific. It is inspiring. And, gratefully, the Lord blesses us greatly when we strive to carry out His will."

The Holy Ghost is integral to teaching. In Tune discusses the facts and fallacies of teaching "by the spirit". Gerald Lund takes a practical and understandable approach discussing the role of the Holy Ghost in effective teaching.
I found this book to be very interesting. There were many moments when the ideas presented struck a chord and explained concepts in a way that made sense. Many times in religious instructional books, the way the ideas are presented take time to figure out what the author is explaining. I didn't feel that way about this book. I appreciated the simplicity of the doctrine and writing.
This book is a great book for any gospel teacher. That includes primary teachers, seminary teachers, parents, etc. Everyone is a teacher in one form or another. I think that the ideas will help make us better students of the gospel.
I am very grateful that I took the time to read this book. I read a chapter each night to ponder the principals. I think it will help me in my learning as well as my teaching.

Why read a book about teaching?
Because we are always in a state of either being the teacher...OR...we are learning from the teacher.
We must "edify and give light to others, to push back the darkness, to bring joy and rejoicing...to lift and build each other spiritually."
This book will helps us be "in tune" with the Spirit while teaching AND/OR learning,
I LOVE the way Gerald Lund teaches...
He will first give you a principle...
And then he will give you a story to illustrate that principle.
A great way to retain, understand, and know how to apply what was just taught!

Elder Lund really has a way with words. In this book, he teaches the reader about teaching and learning through the Holy Ghost and the vital role it plays in the gospel plan. He starts by sharing a number of scriptures that emphasize the importance of every member of the church being a gospel teacher among each other and the world at large. He goes on to discuss the major role the Holy Ghost plays in teaching, how His help can be gained and the benefits it provides. A wonderful book that shares insights and helps especially for gospel teachers. One I can truly recommend.
