Wonder and Other Life Skills explores the human need for community, non-threatening ways to create community in multi-faith environments, the implications of the statement that people are created in the image of God, connections among Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and the use of creative arts as tools to open the minds of young adults to ingenuity, innovation and imagination to help them connect with the Divine. Subsequent chapters provide detailed outlines for eight spiritual retreats for young adults, itemized instructions for including creative arts activities, and recommendations for use of this material by campus ministers, youth pastors, and the church at large. This combination of the theoretical and the practical makes this volume a necessity for those in youth ministry and for seminarians and students of pastoral theology.
