Let the Children Lead: Exploring Children's Spirituality Today
In the fall of 2021, Virginia Theological Seminary convened a symposium of scholars and practitioners engaged in ministry with children. This edited volume of papers includes a vibrant keynote address by Jerome Berryman, best known for his development of Godly Play, and essays by other presenters and panelists who explore the way children's spirituality intersects with scripture, neuroscience, race, gender, and moral development. Together, their research and reflections demonstrate that children's spirituality touches on every single aspect of Christian life. Karen-Marie Yust, Henry Zonio, Tanya Campen, Alfred K. M. Pang, Laura Alary, Anthony Peterson, Amy Chapman, and Catherine Maresca are contributors.
