"Children Matter" provides students, pastors, and lay leaders in the church with understanding of childrenbs spirituality, their place in the faith community, and how that community can effectively nurture its youngest members. Building on biblical and theological foundations, the book focuses on practices in the contemporary Christian church that provide a healthy environment for children; practices that lead the church to truly be the people of God with children as valued participants in its life.
