GirlTalk/GodTalk is a refreshing account of the faith lives of adolescent girls and the roles mothers and fathers play in shaping that faith. Enhanced by interviews Joyce Mercer conducted with 50 girls from 12 Christian denominations and a variety of family backgrounds, the book reveals a world of complex struggle and surprising self-awareness. In their own words, the girls tell deeply personal stories, exploring what it means to be young, female, and Christian, while Mercer offers important insights and strategies for cultivating spiritual identities of compassion, integrity, vocation, and justice-seeking in adolescent girls.
Joyce A. Mercer (Alexandria, VA) teaches practical theology at the Virginia Theological Seminary, and has almost 20 years of experience as a pastor and clinical social worker.
