* Description

In this book, Christopher D. Rodkey asks how the brain worships and responds by engaging ideas from neurological science, philosophy, ritual theory, and religious education. From this exploration, two new paradigms for pastoral ministry emerge. First, Rodkey proposes a “pan-generational” principle, advocating an empathy-based approach for fostering faith communities, a principle that is radically inclusive to all generations. Second, Rodkey argues that worship and religious education should converge to include a shared goal of teaching individuals to “live liturgically.”

In The Synaptic Gospel, Rodkey argues that living and thinking liturgically are learned behaviors that may be promoted through pan-generational worship. The book concludes with a special emphasis on practical suggestions for youth ministry. The Synaptic Gospel will prove to be a useful theoretical tool for pastors, religious educators, youth ministers, church music professionals, and seminary students

Christopher Rodkey (cdrodkey) | 8 comments Is this not the method to get these books that are already listed onto my author profile?

If you are asking for a book already on Goodreads to be moved to a different author profile, post in the Book Issues thread, not Adding New Books. Link to the book, rather than listing all the info we would need to add it to the database. And ask for it to be moved to your author profile.

If all of these books are yours: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

I can merge the two profiles. Your books would all be listed under Christopher D. Rodkey. Does that work for you?
