This revised and expanded version of Godly Play founder Jerome Berryman’s 1995 handbook is for current and future users of Godly Play. With this revision, the book’s original formatting has been redesigned to complement the eight volumes in The Complete Guide to Godly Play series. Illustrations have also been updated, and the text now better reflects the playful spirit of Godly Play. Up-to-date research in childhood development and instruction has also been incorporated in this comprehensive update.

I have been teaching the Godly Play program for two years but for some reason did not know about this book I love this book. It really lays things out much more. It is a must to the beginning of Godly Play if you dont want to go back afterwards and fix some methods you had used without it. Read full review
