Product description

Review

Intergenerational Christian Formation would be a valuable text to use in upper division undergraduate and seminary-level ministry courses. The book's overall tone, practical pointers and insights drawn from congregational field research also make it a great resource for ministry practitioners desiring to explore the theory and practice of intergenerational ministry. This is an important book that deserves to be read widely, one that is sure to have an enduring impact for many years to come.

--Cory Seibel, McMaster Journal for Theology and Ministry, 2013-2014

This book is for pastors, lay leaders and professional church educators and students who want to model congregational life on the kingdom of God instead of marketing strategies designed to appeal to generational narcissism based on individual preference. This is one book that will both encourage and equip congregations to be less 'conformed to the world, ' less prone to say, 'I have no need for you.' This is a book that argues persuasively from solid research, as well as the biblical mandate, for congregations to really 'love one another.' This book is honest about the costly demands of intentional intergenerational development as well as its rich rewards.

--Robbie F. Castleman, author, Parenting in the Pew

Thought-provoking--and refreshing! Allen and Ross present a perfect blend of the biblical principles, academic inquiries and practical solutions surrounding one of the most significant, yet uncharted, areas in today's church communities. A must-read for all who desire to pass along a lasting Christian faith from generation to generation.

--Jessica Stollings Strang, generational speaker and founder of re: Generations

As many North American churches find themselves in turmoil due to age-divided congregations, I believe Intergenerational Christian Formation is a must read.

--Russel Doerksen, The Messenger, July 2013

While there is no easy solution to complex challenges faced particularly by ethnic churches, I appreciate the authors' encouragement to find shared Christian values and a shared mission whereby different generations can engage in shared ministry in spaces beyond the sanctuary. This book provides guidance for anyone interested in and committed to intentional intergenerational Christian formation.

--Narola Ao McFayden, Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology, 68(4)
