A book that integrates a biblical and theological understanding of the child and the most useful insights of developmental psychology. This is a unique volume combining both biblical and theological foundations for children's ministry with a careful assessment of the other major issues in nurturing children: developmentalism, the context of learning and growth, values, cognitive abilities, and social relationships. In this one comprehensive volume an integrated approach to children's ministry emerges, compelling the student and practitioner alike to latch on to its theological handles and pull.
