Item Description...
Rather than discussing their possible vocation, discussions of children tend to center on their rights or duties. Does God have intentions for their young lives - before they grow up and become "real" people? Distinguished jurist Patrick McKinley Brennan has gathered sixteen authors to approach this idea in various ways, from historical to psychological to theological. The authors explore throughout whether it is possible for adults to either squander their children's vocations or instead to help discover and embrace them.

Book Explores Vocation of the Child  Oct 8, 2009
Does God's calling extend to all people, children included? If so, what is the vocation of the child? A new book sponsored by the Center for the Study of Law and Religion (CSLR) at Emory University seeks to examine these questions.

Edited by distinguished jurist Patrick McKinley Brennan, The Vocation of the Child is a product of the CSLR's research project on the Child in Law, Religion, and Society and is the latest book in the CSLR's Religion, Marriage, and Family book series published by Eerdmans. It features 15 essays from project participants and others concerning the calling of the child and its place within the Christian community.

As part of a larger discussion on children's spiritual and moral formation, The Vocation of the Child looks at such topics as rights, duties, and work; who decides the child's vocation; and innocence, depravity, and hope for the freedom of the child.

Brennan is John F. Scarpa Chair in Catholic Legal Studies at Villanova University School of Law. Contributors from the CSLR include Director John Witte, Jr. and senior fellows Vigen Guroian, Charles J. Reid Jr., and Philip L. Reynolds.


The Center for the Study of Law and Religion (CSLR) at Emory University is home to world-class scholars and forums on the religious foundations of law, politics, and society. It offers first-rank expertise on how the teachings and practices of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have shaped and can continue to transform the fundamental ideas and institutions of our public and private lives. The scholarship of CSLR faculty provides the latest perspectives, while its conferences and public forums foster reasoned and robust public debate.
