The Gifts They Bring



The gifts they bring how children in the gospels can shape inclusive ministry.
Written by a biblical studies professor, this text proposes a child-centered approach to biblical interpretation and ministry with young Christians. Each chapter focuses on a 'gift' that children can share with a faith community: participation, proclamation, advocacy, listening, sharing, and partnership. Stories from the Christian New Testament provide a framework for exploring each gift through the eyes and experiences of a child. An academic text that is also accessible to practitioners.
