Informed by Faith: A Spiritual Handbook for Christian Educators and Parents
All of us educate, teach, and form others; as Christians, the place in which this formation takes place is our community. Every waking moment offers opportunities for education, and the home especially is a place for ongoing Christian formation. At home, we equip the family to know that God is a mystery and a God of life and love, and our families can be much-needed examples of how best to struggle with what it means to know God in everyday life experiences of love, suffering, and death.
In Informed by Faith, Mark Francisco Bozzuti-Jones creates a dialogue between religious educators and parents that is designed to lead to meditation, prayer, reflection, and a new perspective on the ministry of teaching. Through examination of the history of education, education as life, and the meaning of being a Christian, Bozzuti-Jones offers those who teach a sense of refreshment in soul, mind, and body, leading to a new commitment to teaching and proclaiming God's life and love.
“One of the primary purposes of religious formation in the home is to equip the members of a family to know God, specifically to know that God is a God of life, God is love, and God is a mystery. More than ever our society needs the examples of families that struggle with what it means to know God in their daily lives, loves, and encounters with pain, suffering and death.”
