Publisher's Description

In this updated reissue of his 1984 classic, James Fowler applies his groundbreaking research on the development of faith to Christianity. In his revised first chapter Fowler locates his approach to the study of human and faith development in relation to the contemporary conversation about identity and selfhood in postmodernity. Fowler invites readers to explore what it means to find and claim vocation: a purpose for one's life that is part of the purposes of God. Reclaiming covenant and vocation as ideals for responsible, mature, Christian selfhood, Fowler shows how a dynamic understanding of what vocation involves can both inform and transform lives.

Author Bio

JAMES W. FOWLER is Charles Howard Candler professor of theology and human development and director of Emory University's Center for Ethics in Public Policy and the Professions.

Editorial Reviews

"Here we have Fowler's own and explicitly Christian word on the interface of faith development research and the particularity of Christian covenant/vocation. A gift to us and an invaluable resource." --Thomas H. Groome, professor of theology and religious education, Boston College

"No one, we believe, has provided more valuable scientific findings and theoretical formulations for those whose care for others is focused principally on the growth of the spirit, and of the person as a whole, than James. W. Fowler." --James J. Gill, editor-in-chief, Human Development

"Becoming Adult, Becoming Christian is an excellent resource for pastoral ministers and religious educators, offering practical insights based upon solid research." --Barbara J. Fleischer, director, Loyola Institute for Ministry, Loyola University
