What Matters Now in Children’s Ministry

image In May 2010, a free resource was made available to the children’s ministry community at large that promises to spark conversations and better the way that people around the world minister to children.  The name of the book is:

WHAT MATTERS NOW IN CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

The book brings together 33 authors from amongst the leaders in the fields of children’s and family ministry.  Each author was asked to define, in one word, “What Matter’s Now in Children’s Ministry.”  They were then asked to expand on that one word with a short (200 words or less) explanation of their choice.  The book can be downloaded for free.

For those who read this blog, it will come as no surprise that I have become quite fond of this resource.  In addition to my official review, and an article on the one word I would have chosen (WORLDVIEW), I have begun a series of posts on this blog designed to look at various chapters more in depth and continue the conversations started by this book.  The following are the entries I have posted thus far related to this book.
