God may choose to work outside of the patterns of human growth and development as well as within them.
How does faith develop? James Fowler feels faith is something common to every human being, and that each person develops faith through the same six stages. What differs is the content of that faith. This study asks: How does God work both through natural human development and through supernatural means to bring a person to himself?
