Journeying in the Wilderness: Forming Faith in the 21st Century
Journeying in the Wilderness places a confessional understanding of faith in dialogue with five contextually altering forces in order to provide a pathway for congregations to reimagine faith formation in the midst of twenty-first-century realities. The use of stories, nontechnical language, and biblical perspectives make this work accessible for congregational leaders and others who seek to explore new directions in forming faith. Each chapter includes leadership competencies, shared practices, and group discussion questions.
