Faithful Change: The Personal and Public Challenges of Postmodern Life

Overview

The author identifies three different types of change and shows how faith must both sustain us in the midst of personal and social change and undergo the process of change itself. Faithful Change extends the discussion of the nature and dynamics of faith begun in the author's earlier groundbreaking work, Stages of Faith. Fowler's study is notable for his analysis of shame and its function in faith development.
