Parents play the most important role in the vibrant faith formation of their children. Yet, many congregations fail to equip parents and other caring adults with the tools they need to nurture and grow the faith of the young people in their churches. The good news is that it is not too late to fix this problem. The author, Dr. David Anderson, traces how this “Great Omission” has happened and what we can do to challenge our youth to live lives of faith and service. This is a wonderful resource for congregational leaders, parents, grandparents and adults who seek a vibrant faith in Jesus Christ for themselves and their children.

What others are saying about From The Great Omission to Vibrant Faith

"David W. Anderson has written a beautiful and important book about the lush graceful life of the household and the way the faith travels as a gift across the generations. This book has a generous and inclusive view of families and homes and posits "valuing families" of whatever composition. I believe the renewal in mission comes with a renewal of the primal relationships that undergird the church in mission. At the center of this web of relationships are the home and the family relationships."
Stephen Paul Bouman, Executive Director of Evangelical Outreach and Congregational Mission ELCA Renewing the Church

"During his report to the Synod Assembly, Bishop Jon spoke of the importance of sharing and nurturing faith in the home. He recommended a book, "From the Great Omission to Vibrant Faith" (written by David W Anderson). The ideas in this book aren't brand new, but they are well and clearly presented. I particularly appreciate Anderson's description of the "extended home." He says nurturing Christian faith in the home is not simply about stories of families with small children, and it's not just about those ideal home settings where the family is intact and everything seems to go right. Rather, family can be sad and painful as well as delightful and includes those people who, over time, provide support, care and guidance. He says a person can have a rich family life with others who are not related by blood or by marriage: a support group or coworkers, friends, or neighbors. Anderson talks about sharing faith in all these important relationships."
Sara Johnson, Resource Center Director, Southwestern MN Synod.
