    Additional Info
    How do children experience and understand God? How can adults help children grow their life of faith? Throughout more than a decade of field research, children’s spirituality experts Catherine Stonehouse and Scottie May listened to children talk about their relationships with God, observed children and their parents in learning and worship settings, and interviewed adults about their childhood faith experiences. This accessibly written book weaves together their findings to offer a glimpse of the spiritual responsiveness and potential of children. Through case studies, it provides insight into children’s perceptions of God and how they process their faith. In addition, the book suggests how parents, teachers, and ministry leaders can more effectively relate to and work with children and pre-adolescents to nurture their faith, offering a helpful picture of adults and children on the spiritual journey together. The book also includes color illustrations created by some of the children the authors observed.

  • Children Matter : Celebrating Their Place In The Church Family And Communit

    $35.50

    Children today are no longer expected to be “seen and not heard,” yet in many churches children are involved only in programs designated for them. “Children Matter” offers a full discussion of children’s spirituality and shows how the faith community can effectively nurture its youngest members.
    Speaking from their experience with children’s ministry in a range of Protestant traditions, the authors draw on the Bible, history, and psychology to lay good foundations for such ministry before discussing the specific content and contexts of faith formation. Finally, they provide wise and practical advice on putting together interesting programs without losing sight of their main purpose. Rather than focusing on innovative ways to use technology, “Children Matter” emphasizes relationships between people and encourages the church to welcome all children as valued participants in the people of God. It will challenge and refresh anyone invested in ministry with children.
