Slugs and Snails and Puppy Dogs’ Tails
Helping Boys Connect with God
by Carolyn Edwards
Publisher:IVP(Inter Varsity Press)
The spirituality of a boy’s faith is a challenging thing, so here comes a timely, precious and wise resource. Mindset, resourcing, reason and heart are excellently communicated here by Carolyn Edwards for the sake of a precious generation of boys. The ten spiritual connections that lie at the heart of this title are epic. The dragonfly spirituality and qualities unpacked here are meaty and expressing existence of a child’s formation in God’s likeness. Creativity, theology, sociology and pastoral care are thoroughly explored in this pacey read.
The appendices and other researched notes throughout reflect the depth and trustworthiness of the author. There is conviction: Christ and the child are well integrated for use in schools and children's work across the nation and beyond. Congratulations are due to Edwards and IVP in this valued new offering!
