The internationally-recognized Christian formation program—now for children aged 6 - 13. This latest addition to the Godly Play® series focuses on new methods for mentors to use with school-aged children. There are multiple ways mentors can keep older children engaged, from changes to the environment, adding more stories, adding print material to the room, adding more sophisticated materials for free-art response to the stories, and more. There are compelling reasons for doing Godly Play with this age group and this book shows you how. Praise for the Godly Play series: "Jerome Berryman recognizes the inherent spirituality of childhood and his message in this book empowers parents and caregivers to nurture their children’s connection to their place of belonging in God’s ongoing story." —Christian Education Journal "Jerome Berryman's work helps children internalize the Christian tradition, and then offers them the opportunity to use that tradition in their daily living." —Rev. Jim Carr, Methodist Minister, San Antonio

The eight volumes of Godly Play invite children from ages 3 to 12 (and beyond) to enter into a deeper and more spontaneous and playful relationship with God. Based on the Montessori method, Godly Play uses a purposeful telling of lessons and stories, engaging storytelling materials and the community of children themselves to encourage participants to seek and find their own answers to their faith questions. This unique approach to religious education invites children to wonder about themselves, God and the world in a way that is both playful and meaningful. Godly Play is really a practice of spiritual guidance because it respects the innate spirituality of children and encourages them to use their own curiosity and imagination to experience deeply the joy and mystery of God. Volume 8 of The Complete Guide to Godly Play includes the following new lessons: • The Greatest Parable • Jesus and Jerusalem: The Story of Holy Week • Mary, the Mother of Jesus • Knowing Jesus in a New Way • The Church • The Liturgical Synthesis It also includes a wealth of capstone insights gleaned from decades of research and practice, as well as an appendix summarizing the foundational literature and describing the entirety of the Godly Play spiral curriculum as it exists today.

Children are theologians with the ability to recognize and respond to God’s presence in their lives. Listening to the stories of children helps us to understand how children make meaning out of God’s presence and reveals tools that children use as they claim their faith. With this knowledge, adults can then better promote and encourage children’s spiritual growth. Offering a theology of childhood, Holy Work with Children values the child’s role in the Body of Christ and God’s transformative work. Dr. Campen invites readers to consider: •How does listening to children teach us about God and faith formation? •What wisdom and insight do children offer to all of us by how they seek understanding of God and God’s presence in their lives? •How can we guide and support the children in our communities in this work? Drawing on direct research with children as they think theologically, this book extends both theological and educational research. Holy Work with Children offers practical examples for how congregational leaders, parents, and those who journey with children can encourage and guide them as they make theological meaning and discover ways to respond to God’s grace and love making a difference in their communities and the world.

Graceful Nurture, written by Rebecca McClain, a long-time "Godly Player" and member of the Godly Play Foundation Board, presents the case for the use of Godly Play with adults. Rebecca lays out four creative "courses" for adults: The Heavenly Banquet -- for preparing adults for baptism, confirmation, and reaffirmation of vows (12 weeks); Dessert Only -- for preparing families who are beginning Godly Play; Slow Cooking -- a Godly Play retreat weekend; and Coffee and Cream -- using Godly Play on Sunday Mornings (12 weeks). Requiring the use of lessons from the Complete Guide to Godly Play (which are NOT included in the book), Graceful Nurture offers background on Godly Play, including why and how to use it with adults, and in depth notes and suggestions for 12 key Godly Play lessons, including how to adapt them for an adult audience. The four "courses" all build on these 12 lessons.

In this series of books, Jerome Berryman doesn't make any universal claims, such as "Everyone should do Godly Play, and this is exactly how they should do it." Godly Play isn't something that everyone can or should do. You will need to practice these lessons, use them with children, reflect on them and do them some more before they will be yours. This is especially important, since all we can really teach the children is how to enter the language to be more fully in God's presence. How can you explain that? You have to show it. In Volume 1 of The Complete Guide to Godly Play, Jerome Berryman provides many opportunities for you to practice and reflect on this art. What's inside Volume 1: How to Lead Godly Play Lessons? You'll find what you need here to enter into the most rewarding play of all: Godly Play. Chapter 1: What is Godly Play?
