About "Faith and Friendships of Teenage Boys"
Drawing on research and case studies, three pastoral care experts argue that one of the primary contexts in which the faith formation of teenage boys takes place is in their relationships with other adolescent males. Written by the authors ofLosers, Loners, and Rebels: The Spiritual Struggles of Boys, this book is an important resource for anyone interested in helping adolescent males navigate years often marked by isolation and loneliness to develop a meaningful spiritual identity.

Excerpt from: Faith and Friendships of Teenage Boys
"Friendship is more than a resource on which an adolescent boy may draw in order to help him make his way forward. It is also integral to how a boy comes to understand the destination itself. If based on truth and tenderness boys' friendships often are their faith." ?from the introduction
