Through The Eyes Of A Child
Full Product Description
Who has the right to 'do' theology? Only academics? Only adults? Or do we all have a voice in the kingdom of God?
Through the eyes of a child considers 14 key theological themes from one of the most neglected of perspectives - that of children. Honouring Jesus' command to place the child at the centre, theologians, psychologists and educationalists take us from our comfort zone to look afresh at some of the most grave, difficult and beautiful topics in Christian theology.
Challenging conventional readings of theology, this landmark work will fascinate and challenge anyone who cares about children and their place in the world and the church.

Through the Eyes of a ChildIan Gibbs, via The Good Book Stall
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.
