A Child Sees God

Full Product Description

'Unless you become like a child, you cannot enter the Kingdom of heaven'. Throughout the years, many people have attempted to understand exactly what Jesus meant when he said these words. In "A Child Sees God", Howard Worsley explores how we can all learn from a child's perspective of the world and how the child's eye view of the Bible presents a new way of understanding this ancient scripture.Looking at a variety of bible stories read to many different children at different stages of development, the book offers not only fresh insights into the meaning and significance of these stories but also reflections on how adults can use the Biblical text in the company of children. Exploring ways of encouraging children's discussion of the stories and recording their comments, Worsley acknowledges and celebrates the originality of a child's vision and the huge implications of this vision for parents, teachers and ministers. The themes of the Bible are universal and the stories explored in the book are divided into seven sections, classified by their basic plot as texts of wonder, adventure and leadership, terror, justice and judgement, comfort and hope, comedy, or mercy and forgiveness.This innovative study of a child's perceptions of Bible stories provides a new and illuminating perspective of the text and will be a fascinating read for parents, teachers and ministers, and anyone with an interest in childhood spirituality.
