9780664227586: Growing In The Life Of Faith, Second Edition: Education And Christian Practices

In this new edition of his popular book, Craig Dykstra explores the contributions of the traditions, education, worship practices, and disciplines of the Reformed Christian community in helping people grow in faith. In doing so, he makes the case that the Christian church, in its own traditions, has a wealth of wisdom about satisfying spiritual hunger and the desire to know God deeply--wisdom that offers coherent, thoughtful guidance in such diverse settings as congregational life, families, youth groups, and higher education.

From the Back Cover:

"Here is faith brought to life, and the teaching of religion described with knowing care—all the possibilities of such work wonderfully rendered. It is a distinct pleasure to read a book so clearly written—its pages stir the mind and touch the heart." --Robert Coles, Harvard University, author of The Spiritual Life of Children

"‘What does it mean to live the Christian life faithfully and well? And how can we help one another to do so?’ I recently heard Craig offer these two questions as a summary of his life-long interests. As he notes early in Growing in the Life of Faith, the ongoing forms of Christian living in his family and church were determinative in planting these questions in his mind and shaping his answers to them... He insists that thinking and doing cannot be separated--and neither can believing and living, education and its content, or theology and the means of sharing it with others. This is where ‘practices’ come in--not at all through a simplistic ‘putting ideas into practice’ approach but rather by showing how the dualism implied in that cliché disappears when people are actively engaged in the ongoing, thought-filled practices of the Christian life." --From the foreword by Dorothy Bass, Director of the Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith

About the Author:

Craig Dykstra is Senior Vice President for Religion at the Lilly Endowment, Inc. in Indianapolis, Indiana.
