Children today are no longer expected to be "seen and not heard," yet in many churches children are involved only in programs designated for them. "Children Matter" offers a full discussion of children's spirituality and shows how the faith community can effectively nurture its youngest members. Speaking from their experience with children's ministry in a range of Protestant traditions, the authors draw on the Bible, history, and psychology to lay good foundations for such ministry before discussing the specific content and contexts of faith formation. Finally, they provide wise and practical advice on putting together interesting programs without losing sight of their main purpose. Rather than focusing on innovative ways to use technology, "Children Matter" emphasizes relationships between people and encourages the church to welcome all children as valued participants in the people of God. It will challenge and refresh anyone invested in ministry with children.
