Exploring the spirituality and faith of girls on the verge of adolescence, Phillips presents fresh insights into children's spirituality and their transition to adulthood. Phillips has listened to girls' speaking on the themes of self, God, church and world, and reflected on their experiences and understandings in the light of current thinking, all placed into dialogue with a feminist approach to contemporary theology and the bible. This book will appeal to all those exploring areas of youth ministry, pastoral care, Christian education, nurture and childhood studies, psychology and theology.
