This book is a basic guide for Christian leaders to holistically take a look at faith formation development. The authors take a light-hearted look at the church as a frog. They point out that it takes a whole church frog—head (church leadership), torso (congregation), and legs (home)—to raise persons of faith in a world in need of God. It offers the foundational basis for faith formation development that has evolved currently into the Milestones Ministry Frame of faith formation. The book is a primary reference volume for passing on Christian faith to the next generation.
Are you up for the challenge? It can be a major change for church leaders to shift the center of faith formation from the congregation into a shared center involving the home and ministry in daily life. The end result is a stronger congregation-home partnership. Pastors and lay leaders can benefit from this guidance on how to walk with the "children in their hands" on the journey of life and faith. This book is an excellent resource to use for congregational leadership study and congregational retreats.
