Andrew Root has written an excellent book called "Faith Formation in a Secular Age; Responding to the Church's Obsession with Youthfulness". It was published in 2017 by Baker Books and is the first part of a three book series on ministry in a secular age. The second work is on the role of the Pastor and the third which has just been released is centered on the ministry of the Congregation. In "Faith Formation", Root critiques and builds on the work of philosopher Charles Taylor, New Testament scholar Michael Gorman and Dietrich Bonhoeffer's little known emphasis on youth ministry. Below is a link to a review of the book I wrote for the current August edition of the Lutheran Theological Journal.
About this site
"Meditations & Musings" is my humble attempt to share what I have found useful in ministry in an Australian Lutheran School setting. It contains chapels, devotions and other resources I have written, used and adapted in my K-12 school context. If you would like to also share your ideas, resources or start a conversation about mission and ministry in your church- school location, feel free to contact me.
