Through the Eyes of a Child

New Insights in Theology from a Child’s perspective

by Edited by Anne Richards & Peter Privett


Price: £19.99
Publisher:Church House Publishing (CHP) part of Hymns Ancient & Modern
Published:January 2009
To mark the thirtieth anniversary of the United Nations International Year of the Child, this book has been published by Church House Publishing (C of E). The reader must judge whether the contributors to this volume have succeeded in their aim of seeing religious experience through the eyes of a child. Perhaps more importantly the essayists address the still problematic issues of the theology of childhood, children’s theological insights, childhood spirituality, and so on. In spite of decades of observation there still does not seem to be an agreed understanding of the religious development of the child, and certainly no consensus on how that development relates to the adult, and adult religious development. This is a work in progress.
