Smith, using his unique insights, argues that Christian education is a formative process centered on liturgy, spiritual formation, and desire. As such, it constitutes a "counter-formation" to secular liturgies such as malls, stadiums and other secular "liturgical structures". By forming Christians in this way, Smith believes we can reorient our desires toward the flourishing of God's kingdom and employ worship as the pedagogical tool to root our liturgy and spiritual formation in love. Volume one in the Cultural Liturgies series, Desiring the Kingdom promises to present a new and challenging pedagogical paradigm for teachers and pastors alike.
