The Bookcase: Along the Way
With this post, we begin The Bookcase, an online series allowing readers of ACU Today a look at books authored, compiled, edited, illustrated or photographed by Abilene Christian University alumni, faculty, staff and students, as well as those produced by ACU Press and Leafwood Publishers, Abilene Christian’s two imprints. It expands on what we publish in each printed issue of the magazine.
We hope you enjoy the content and share it with others!
Conversations about children and faith draw us close to the heart of God. Among the people of God, these talks are justifiably nuanced and passionate. The authors of Along the Way lead everyone in the church – parents, grandparents, teachers, friends, ministers and leaders – in careful yet understandable dialogue about nurturing children spiritually. Along the way, we discover how the individuality of each child and the distinctiveness of their context call us to see each child’s walk with God as a unique journey of discovery. We also learn that sharing these paths with children changes and blesses us at least as much as it does them.
