Girlfriend Theology is a model of religious education that helps nurture voice and authentic spirituality in girls and women. It is one way for the spiritual hunger, passion, and curiosity of today's adolescent girls to connect with the beliefs and practices of the generations of faithful women who came before them. It provides a healthy faith-based antidote to the dangers many girls face as they approach adulthood. The author introduces this ground-breaking method and shows how to set up a Girlfriend Theology group; discern themes within the stories the girls tell; ask or prompt theological questions; and adapt the information of the book to groups other than girls.
Leaders of retreats and small groups will find this to be a valuable resource.
