Product Description

Written by the authors of the popular Losers, Loners, and Rebels: The Spiritual Struggles of Boys, this book is an important resource for anyone interested in helping adolescent males navigate years often marked by isolation and loneliness to develop a meaningful spiritual identity.

Drawing on research and case studies, three pastoral care experts argue that one of the primary contexts in which the faith formation of teenage boys takes place is in their relationships with other adolescent males.

Editorial Reviews

"While The Faith and Friendships of Teenage Boys is written by authors who teach in Protestant seminaries, I see the book as written for both a Christian and broader audience. It draws from scripture very well, but also includes powerful information from psychology and other human sciences. I learned a lot from this book." Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Boys and coauthor of Following Jesus: A Heroic Quest for Boys
"The authors of this book argue that for male adolescents, religion has much to do with one's friends. Yet Christianity often joins society in fearing male intimacy and condoning antipathy toward women. With personal wisdom and pastoral insight, the authors challenge such distortions and provide guidance for those in ministry and all who yearn to understand the boys in their lives or even the boy within themselves." Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore, Vanderbilt University; author of Let the Children Come: Reimaging Childhood from a Christian Perspective
"Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, David and Jonathan, and Damon and Pythias are all paradigmatic of the deep bond of friendship between adolescent males. Dykstra, Cole, and Capps explore the role of companionship along the adolescent male's journey toward faith, addressing the value of both same-age friendships and of mentoring by more mature males." Philip Culbertson, The University of Auckland; author of The New Adam: The Future of Male Spirituality
