Jesuit Communications has published the main text used in the recently
concluded First
National Convention of Campus Ministry.  The book is entitled
A Radical New Model for Youth and Family Ministry
What a radically new yet ancient model of faith formation: the family is
restored to the center of the faith growth process, with the
congregation and community as integral, active partners!
The authors of this book present this new model, which is based on the
extensive research of Search Institute and the Youth and Family
Institute of Augsburg College, including the finding that only 10
percent of church families (both Protestant and Catholic) discuss their
faith on a regular basis. In Passing On the Faith, Merton P. Strommen
and Richard A. Hardel draw on their pastoral experiences to relate
research and theory to Catholic life.
The book addresses topics including strengthening family relationships,
congregations as family, creating a Christian youth subculture, and
transforming today's culture. It also gives concrete advice for
translating the strategies from vision into action.
With its helpful chapter notes, bibliography, list of resource contacts,
and index, Passing On the Faith is an important text for college and
seminary courses in youth and family ministry, and is a useful reference
book for community and school libraries. With its narrative style,
ideas, anecdotes, charts, graphs, and activities, it is also an
essential resource for pastors, youth ministers, family ministers, and
community leaders. This book will encourage dialogue about an essential
tenet of Christian teachings-that the family is central to faith
Passing on the Faith is available at Jesuit Communications (Sonolux
Bldg), Tanging Yaman Store at LHS, Tanging Yaman/JesCom kiosks in SM
Megamall, SM North EDSA, Robinsons Manila, and Robinsons Galleria, and
soon in major bookstores nationwide.  Retail price is at P350.
