Long NeededKevin E Lawson, Talbot School of Theology; editor, Christian Education Journal
Provides a long-needed look into the actual spiritual life experience of children and helps us consider how what we do in our homes and families can better encourage a growing vital faith in Christ. It is both moving and convicting to read.
Endorsement for 'Listening to Children on the Spiritual Journey'Ivy Beckwith, minister to children and families, Congregational Church of New Canaan, Connecticut
This book is an important addition to recent literature and research on the spiritual formation of children. The fine work by these authors, long committed to the spiritual nurture of children, should lay to rest any doubts about the capacity of children to know, love, worship, and experience God in ways that put to shame many adults.
Endorsement of 'Listening to Children on the Spiritual Journey'Jerome W. Berryman, senior fellow, Center for the Theology of Childhood, Denver;
Catherine Stonehouse and Scottie May have listened carefully to children, using interviews and interpreting their art, and they have listened to parents. Their conclusion is not a set of norms for what children should know or a theory of children's spirituality. Their conclusion is that setting the stage for children to wonder together about God, guided by a wise and skillful mentor in a carefully prepared environment, enables them to know God well and to express what they know by making room for the Holy Spirit to be their most important teacher. The primary implication of their conclusion for both children and adults is that we need to listen with better-tuned ears to hear what Jesus had to say about becoming like a child to enter the kingdom.
