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:
'A brilliant mix of thought provoking theology and challenging practical applications. It has changed how I see children and church.' - Ben Mizen, Youth and Children's Work Adviser, Diocese of Portsmouth
'A powerful reaffirmation and exploration of the importance of childhood spirituality for the ministry and mission of the church, which will be welcomed by all working in this field.' - Alister McGrath
