Passing on the Faith: A Radical Model for Youth and Family Ministry
Hardel and Strommen present in this book a radically new (yet ancient) model for faith formation of young people. They place the family at the very center of the faith growth process, with the congregation and community as integral, active partners. Not just theory, the model is based on the extensive research of Search Institute and the Youth & Family Institute of Augsburg College. Here theory has been given flesh by the authors' pastoral experiences. With its helpful chapter notes, comprehensive bibliography, list of resource sites, and handy index, the book is an excellent text for college and seminary courses in youth and family ministry, and a useful reference book for both community and school libraries. With its narrative style, ideas, anecdotes, illustrations, and activities, this book also is an excellent resource for pastors, youth ministers, family ministers and community leaders.
