Item Description...
This seminal book opens windows into the history of Christian thinking on neglected but important topis: the child, the care of children, the education of children, the responsibility of parents, and the many theological, spiritual, and practical repercussions connected with these concerns. In rich and subtle way this book provides both orientation and new contemporary perspectives on child rearing and its consequences for religious communities, culture, society, and the common good.

Publishers Description
This volume offers the first major survey of the history of Christian thought on children. Each chapter, written by an expert in the field, discusses the particular perspectives on children held by influential theologians and Christian movements throughout church history, asking what resources they can contribute to a sound contemporary view of childhood and child-rearing. Intended for all readers, this needed book will be a valuable resource for laying the foundation for a new, more meaningful Christian view of childhood today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Good Base  Feb 15, 2007
This book will give you an overview of the Churches history on children and families. While the book presents many ideas that are antiquated and opposite of today's theologies on the the teaching of children, this book can be used as a tool to see where many bases for church's thoughts on children came from.

An important history lesson for anyone working with children!
