Faith Shaping Mar 20, 2007
A teenager's faith is a "journey in search" when youth first experience the full force of life's ambiguities. How can parents and the church help youth make the transition from the faith of childhood to a faith more appropriate to adolescence? Stephen jones reaches into his years of pastoral experience for ideas that reflect his own maturing viewpoints on faith shapong. Many of these ideas have developed since the writing of the original edition of this book. It's fresh, new, expanded.
Jones's concept of nurturing goes beyond the usual goal of helping youth make a one-time decision. He sees nurturing as a process for helping teens build a solid foundation for a faith that will continue growing in young adulthood. Aware that God alone is he transforming power, Jones calls parents and the church to nuture youth for these transforming encounters. Supplemented with creative new resources and programs for junior and senior high youth, this expanded, revised edition discusses evangelism and transformation; stages of the faith cycle; practical nurturing goals; building memorable faith experiences; shaping a nurturing enviroment; developing giftedness; how youth can shape their culture; and much more. --- from book's back cover
