A Child Sees God: Children Talk About Bible Stories

A Child Sees God: Children Talk About Bible Stories (Paperback)

£16.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

In A Child Sees God, Howard Worsley explores how we can all learn from a child's perspective of the world and shows how a child's eye view of the Bible reveals many interesting ideas about ethics and morality, and provides new ways of understanding these ancient stories.



By asking families to read Bible stories to their children and discuss these stories with them, recording the ensuing conversations, Howard Worsley offers not only fresh insights into the meaning and significance of these stories but also reflections on how adults can use the Biblical text in the company of children at different stages of development. Following the theory that all stories ever written fall into one of seven categories, this book shows that the themes of the Bible are no different, dividing stories into sections containing texts of wonder, adventure and leadership, terror, justice and judgement, comfort and hope, comedy, and mercy and forgiveness.



This fresh look at the Bible through the eyes of children will be a fascinating read for parents, teachers, ministers, and anyone with an interest in child spirituality or ethics.

Rev Dr Howard Worsley is a researcher, a teacher and a priest. He gained a BA in English at Manchester University and followed this with an MA in Theology at Nottingham University and a PhD in Education at Birmingham University. His long-term research interest is to uncover the original vision seen by children in encountering what adults call "spiritual reality". Howard is currently the Diocesan Director of Education for Southwell & Nottingham and Chair of the National Association of Church Directors of Education. He lives in Nottinghamshire with his wife, Ruth, a parish vicar, and is father to three sons with whom he variously explores the world by canoe, bike or foot.
