Do You Have Faith Formation Book or Devotional Suggestions?

  73 views

Our church has a Spiritual Formation committee that oversees youth programs, adult small groups, fellowship events, and much more.  As a committee, we are looking for a book or devotional to read together and help center our focus on our purpose: Faith Formation of our church community.  I have come across several books that sound interesting, but I would love to hear your suggestions. Have you read a supportive book or devotional on Faith Formation?

My go-to suggestion would be Shaped by God, edited by Bob Keeley (http://www.faithaliveresources.org/Products/151126/shaped-by-god.aspx). It's an excellent resource with chapters on all sorts of topics by different authors. 

I ran into George Brown (G.W. and Eddie Haworth Professor Emeritus of Christian Education at Western Theological Seminary) a few weeks ago and he recommended these two newer titles on faith formation:

Families and Faith: How Religion is Passed Down Across Generations by Vern Bengtson

Faith Forward by Melvin Bray

Let us know what you decide on, we'd love to hear your thoughts!
