Product description

This concise guide is an ideal introduction to the increasingly popular topic of children's spirituality. Mixing theory with tips on 'good practice', leading expert Rebecca Nye shows how choices made in churches and homes can stimulate or stifle a child's spiritual development, exploring:

  • Childhood as a natural source of spirituality
  • Ways to help children value and express their spirituality
  • The role of Christian nurture and worship in early spiritual development
