With children taking communion before confirmation now widely practiced in the Church of England, a fresh theological and practical exploration of confirmation is both timely and welcome.
This book will equip clergy, lay church leaders, youth workers and PCCs with a deeper understanding of the origins and theology of confirmation, and of youth culture with its needs for rites of passage that acknowledge within young people an adult faith and an adult position within their church. It will enable churches to put confirmation at the heart of youth discipleship.
Pete Maidment is the Adviser in Evangelism and Discipleship for Young People for the Diocese of Winchester and a youth pastor at Highfield church. He also chairs the Youth Culture and Mission Lectures, a group that organises academic lectures for those working with young people. Find Pete Maidment on Twitter: twitter.com/maidop
