A way to live

The Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith, based at Valparaiso University in Indiana, has been encouraging people to think about and live the communal practices that form Christian existence. The project, directed by Dorothy Bass, has produced a number of widely read books, including Practicing Our Faith: A Way of Life for a Searching People (see below for a complete list). In addition, it provides grants to support projects engaging people in Christian practices in congregations, theological schools and other institutions.
