Item Description...
This book is about reconciliation and the healing of the child self--"the mutilated soul"--that all adults carry within themselves. Using the biblical image of the Garden, the author draws from the same biblical tradition that has contributed to the physical and emotional abuse of children to envision and initiate the healing process.

Publishers Description

Theological ideas and biblical injunctions have frequently been employed to legitimate the physical abuse of children. Some theological ideas are inherently abusive because they create fear in a child's mind, causing a child to feel alone, odd, and of little worth. Donald Capps exposes the abuses that theology and the Bible have inflicted on vast numbers of children. In particular, he is concerned with the "hidden" abuses of children by well-intentioned adults and the role that religion plays in the legitimation of these abuses.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Important but disturbing  May 2, 2001
This book is an important but disturbing look at the mixed messages and hidden curriculum in modern churches. Congregations which paradoxically use blind obediance while asking one to trust a loving God who kills can either provoke a crisis of personality or a self-destructive impulse in children/teens/then adults. Christianity has too long been an adult dominated, child exploiting patriarch which vehemently denies children (and often women's) rights to life, self, happiness, and proclamation.

It is a great beginning to an important dialogue.
