Teaching Godly Play
Teaching Godly Play: How to Mentor the Spiritual Development of Children (Revised, Expanded)
This revised and expanded version of Godly Play founder Jerome Berryman’s 1995 handbook is for current and future users of Godly Play. It begins by discussing why serious-serene play is important to nourish children's spirituality and then moves the reader through the process of how to mentor children so they can enter adolescence with an inner working model of Christianity. This system includes stories, parables, and contemplative silence. With this revision, the book’s original formatting has been redesigned to complement the eight volumes in The Complete Guide to Godly Play series, though Quakers have their own Faith and Play to develop a specifically Quaker understanding.
Illustrations have also been updated, and the text now better reflects the playful spirit of Godly Play. Up-to-date research in childhood development and instruction has also been incorporated in this comprehensive update.Author: Jerome Berryman
