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."
“An original, significant contribution…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?
