The Growth of Love

Understanding Five Essential Elements of Child Development

by Keith J. White


Price: £8.99
Publisher:Barnabas imprint of BRF
Published:09 April 2008
The forward being written by the great Sir Richard Bowlby immediately indicates that this is a book that students connecting child care and theology will want to read. However, White himself downplays his academic contribution on the basis that it is the reflections of a practitioner rather than a substantial research project. Over a hundred years of the White family’s lives have been spent in community with damaged children at Mill Grove, the home at the centre of the book. Therefore White has both depth and humanity to offer the reader in this exploration of child development, not a process to be copied but rather a way of life that allows love to grow.
