DESCRIPTION

Three leading Christian educators offer a survey of faith formation from various perspectives: biblical, theological, pastoral, practical, and global. The authors present a biblical theology of faith formation for individual and congregational life and show how faith can be formed through the life and mission of the local church through practices such as communal worship, Bible study, and mission. They also explore the faces of faith formation in multicultural and global contexts.
 
Understanding Faith Formation is well suited for spiritual formation, discipleship, pastoral theology, and Christian ministry classes. It includes practical exercises for those beginning in ministry as well as reflection questions.
