Summary

GirlTalk/GodTalk offers a refreshing exploration of the faith lives of adolescent girls and shows how they think about, experience, and express spiritual and religious meanings in their lives. The book also explores the important role mothers, fathers and other parenting adults play in shaping that faith. As Joyce Ann Mercer explains, religion and faith can hold things together for girls as they move between the childhood self, the person they are in the present, and the adult self that is beginning to develop.

Author Biography

Joyce Ann Mercer teaches practical theology at the Virginia Theological Seminary and has more than twenty years of experience as a pastor and clinical social worker.
