Review of New Book

The reviews and endorsements for Children’s Ministry in the Way of Jesus (hitting bookshelves in the fall) have started coming in. Ivy and I have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback the book is receiving. Here’s one review (more to come later):

“Simply brilliant! If I could influence church leaders and children’s ministry practitioners to read just one book on children’s ministry, Children’s Ministry in the Way of Jesus would be the one. In this book Dave and Ivy have achieved something remarkable as they have captured the current picture of children’s ministry in the West, succinctly set that picture within recent history and used their collective wisdom, experience and knowledge to purposefully provide the settings for an alternative future in children’s work–a future not solely focused on educative or entertaining programs and children’s cognitive ability but a much more holistic approach. One that is more intentionally nurturing and formational to children as spiritual beings, theologians, disciples of Jesus and worshipers of God within, of course, a church community–a community that is intergenerational, humble and willing to journey with them as fellow travelers and colearners as we all seek to grow in the way of Jesus day by day. Children’s Ministry in the Way of Jesus needs and deserves to be one of the most influential texts on children’s ministry of our generation and in years to come.”
