Years of experience wrapped into a pleasant read Jan 13, 2003
Steve Alley's experience in Children's ministry spans 25 years. Throughout that time, he has co-authored 14 volumes of his SKITuations drama curriculum with his wife, written the bible-school curriculum Biblical Choices for a New Generation, served as Children's pastor at three churches, and as a professor at Hope International University. He has boiled all of this experience and wisdom down into a very easy-to-read format and has used the running model of growing a garden to help us relate the complicated ideas to our own ministry. It is a very useful tool for the children's minister.
