The Child in Christian Thought, Paperback / softback Book

The Child in Christian Thought Paperback / softback

Edited by Marcia Bunge

Paperback / softback


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. Contributors: Clarissa W. Atkinson Margaret Bendroth Catherine Brekus Marcia J.
