Dr. Root is the most influential teacher I have had at Wheaton. This class has benefitted my faith, relationship, education, and future. He sets high standards, but tells you how you can meet them. Class consists of daily readings and weekly quizzes. His exams are not surprises, he prepares you for all the material. This class is life-changing.

He is definitely a really fantastic guy. Lots of reading and (in this class) one one-page thoughtful essay a week. I still make efforts to get lunch or coffee with him. Very wise, personal, thought-provoking prof.

This phrase is probably thrown around too much, but Jerry Root is hands down the best prof at Wheaton

Most personal and caring professor at Wheaton. The things you learn in his class will go so much further than just inside the classroom. Regardless of what your major is, everyone should take Intro to Christian Ed with Jerry Root.... It's that impactful

His classes are very hard because he's a really tough grader, but he really cares about his students. He tends to tell the same stories and information multiple times, often using the same exact words and phrases each time, but they're good stories and help you conceive God and faith in new ways.

If you want a teacher who really cares about your education, Jerry Root more than fulfills that. He lost me a couple of times, but he has some really deep insights.

Very insightful and knowledgable about all subject areas. He's always very intentional about quoting many authors from all genres. On one issue he'll tackle it from the CE, Psych, Theology, and Sociology/Anthropology angles all at once.

My husband took 'C.S. Lewis' and gushed with what he learned after each class. Jerry is very, very intelligent but he makes his message extremely clear, accessible and devotional. Do the necessary 'thinking work' in his class and you will learn a lot about the subject & yourself. Hang out with him!
