"In this new edition of his popular book, Craig Dykstra explores the contributions of the traditions, education, worship practices, and disciplines of the Reformed Christian community in helping people grow in faith. In doing so, he makes the case that the Christian church, in its own traditions, has a wealth of wisdom about satisfying spiritual hunger and the desire to know God deeply - wisdom that offers coherent, thoughtful guidance in such diverse settings as congregational life, families, youth groups, and higher education." "This edition includes a study guide by Syd Hielema, a new foreword by Dorothy C. Bass, and a new preface by the author. It is ideal for clergy, Christian educators, spiritual directors, and all who are interested in finding guidance in their quest for a genuine encounter with God."--Jacket.
