Exploring Spirituality and Contemplative Practices in Youth Ministry
As youth ministry is transitioning toward the postmodern there are many voices calling us back to the pre-modern, the ancient in fact. There is a strong trend toward exploring the spirituality and the contemplative practices used by the church of the early centuries. Jones has written a book that will help many in understanding, and making an informed judgment. "Soul Shaper" is a helpful source on the topic of spiritual and contemplative practices, or disciplines such as: Sacred Reading, The Jesus Prayer, Stations of the Cross, The Labyrinth, Fasting and many more.
Jones addresses each discipline the same way: beginning with a real story of the discipline in ministry; the history of it, the theology of it, how to practice it, and some thoughts for youth ministry regarding it. That is one of the greatest things about this book: it is written with youth ministry in mind.
