In this volume Jerome Berryman has gathered together the presentations that form the suggested cycle of lessons for Spring. If we leave out the respectful experiences of scripture, we risk trivializing the Christian way of life. We also miss out on the profound fun of existential discovery, a kind of "fun" that keeps us truly alive. In this volume you'll find all the information you need to present the spring lessons of Godly Play. The simple format of the lessons presented in The Complete Guide to Godly Play will enable all teachers, whether new or experienced, to find the information they need to enter fully into the most rewarding play we share: Godly Play.
