Best book available on children's spiritual formation! 10 Oct. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is by far the most thoughtful presentation I have read about children's spiritual nurture (and I've read most of the titles now available on the market). Fowler's clsssic may be the standard for explaining stages of spiritual formation, but Dr. Stonehouse truly fleshes out children's experience of faith and how parents and educators can most effectively feed children spiritually. She writes from a Christian perspective. Her approach is scholarly and draws from solid research, yet the text is engaging and highly readable with wise suggestions parents will want to implement. It is not a gimmick-filled idea book, but rather a well grounded guide in understanding, encouraging, and joining children on a shared spiritual journey. Dr. Stonehouse shows great insight into children's experience of faith at various stages, and gives parents and the wider church family a solid understanding of how to share a rich, worshipful life with kids. Besides the clear writing, the strength of this book is the wisdom it imparts that nurturing a life of faith is as much about adults growing and maturing as it is about their modeling and encouraging spiritual growth for children. This book will prove valuable to parents, christian educators, Sunday school program directors, and those in relational ministry to children. She includes a great bibliography.

Excellent book! 25 Jan. 2014

I had to read this for a class I was taking and fell in love! Spiritual development is often overlooked in mainstream society and the spiritual development of children is often overlooked in churches as well. This book explains why it is vital that children's spiritual needs be met, that they receive a chance to develop it, and tells caretakers how we can help. I wish everyone would read this and pass it on!
So far so good! 11 Feb. 2014

I'm reading this book for a college class.
I'm only to chapter 5, but really good so far!
I'm impressed by how Informative this book is on child development and there are several practical ministry applications here!
