Child theology Movement

In Child Theology, we are invited to take good note of the child in the midst as we think about, for, to, from and with God in Christ. As we do that, we expect our theology to change for the better.

Theology for Kids: Recommending Some Recent Books for Younger Children

The evangelical market is glutted with books for children, but many of them are about as biblically faithful and theologically reliable as VeggieTales. Thankfully, some fine theology books for children are available. (And they are edifying for adults, too!)
