   schema:description "Formation has become an increasingly central idea in Christian churches in recent years. It embraces learning and living the faith as a disciple, and preparation for ordained and lay ministries. Christian discipleship faces many challenges today many people have little or no knowledge of the Christian faith, and Christianity itself goes against many of society's predominant values and attitudes. Formation addresses all these issues, aiming to develop discipleship in the areas of being, knowing and doing. This book is a resource for all who have any kind of responsibility for Christian formation clergy, educators, spiritual directors, youth pastors. Part One explores the various secular notions of fulfilment that hold sway today. Part Two sets out a theological account of human transformation through Christ and maps its convergence and tension with contemporary culture. Part Three shows how Christian formation today can be nourished by worship, doctrine, spirituality and engagement with secular society."@en ;
