Editorial Reviews

Review

"Shaped by God is a terrific new resource that blends 21st century thinking in faith formation with effective practices to enhance every congregation's faith formation efforts. The 12 chapters live up to their billing--they present "essentials" for faith formation today by offering a comprehensive vision that includes worship and sacraments, Christian practices, family and intergenerational approaches, spirituality, and the postmodern context, among its themes. Church staff and faith formation leaders should take the time to study and discuss the chapters in this book and use the authors' wisdom to develop strategies for strengthening and expanding their faith formation with all generations in the congregation and at home." --John Roberto, LifelongFaith Associates; Editor, Lifelong Faith Journal<br \><br \>"Shaped by God is a helpful, faithful collection of short, introductory essays on faith faith formation or Christian nurture highly recommended for beginners." --(Rev. Dr.) John Westerhoff, retired Episcopal priest and Duke University professor of theology and Christian nurture<br \><br \>"Shaped by God gathers into one book the central insights of many of today's most important Protestant leaders in faith formation. Excellent essays on a variety of approaches will be helpful to Christian educators in schools, congregations, colleges, and seminaries--and will remind them and other readers of the vital importance of their work." --Dorothy C. Bass, Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith

Although most of the authors emphasize the spiritual learning of children, this is an excellent source for ideas to spur Christian faith formation in people of all ages. The book covers a lot of ground by inviting the voices of experts in their various fields to address how specific elements affect faith growth. For instance, there are chapters on the role of the sacraments, the role of story, and the role of worship in faith formation. The chapter describing the link between cognitive development and faith formation is very helpful, especially for church leaders who have not been exposed to educational psychology and may forget that children (and all of us) grow and change in stages. I appreciated the refresher course on the appropriate expectations for the age groups. Recommend for any clergy, youth/children's worker, Bible study group, parents, Christian educator.
