Godly Play: An Imaginative Approach to Religious Education

Godly Play: An Imaginative Approach to Religious Education

A practical yet innovative approach to religious education -- becoming childlike in order to teach children.

Godly Play invites us to consider spiritual development as a process in which the creative spirit is alive in the education of both young and old. Berryman awakens us to new ways of seeing ourselves and helps us to discover "our deep identity as Godly creatures."

"A very fresh spirit in early childhood religious education. [Berryman] offers and models a unique approach to being with children in scripture and tradition. His Children's Center, vividly made available in this book, is a wonderful place to visit and dwell for a while. You will leave it rested and changed."
--James W. Fowler, author of Stages of Faith: The Psychology of Human Development and Becoming Adult, Becoming Christian: Adult Development and Christian Faith

"An original, significant contribution to the field of religious education…A pleasure and an inspiration to read…important for all adults, especially those who care about children."
--John H. Westerhoff, author of Bringing Up Children in the Christian Faith, Living the Faith Community, and Will Our Children Have Faith?
