Exploring the spirituality and faith of girls on the verge of adolescence, The Faith of Girls presents fresh insights into children’s spirituality and their transition to adulthood. Anne Phillips has listened to girls’ voices speaking in depth on the themes of self, God, church, and world, and reflected on their experiences and understandings in the light of current psychological, philosophical and sociological thinking, all placed into dialogue with a feminist approach to contemporary theology and bible.
