The letter below is based on one that Cori Bromfield wrote to a friend’s preteen daughter to help them to discuss fandom and online safety together.
We asked several youth and children’s workers to recommend some great books for people committed to a biblical pattern of ministry who want to be reading and thinking more.
If you turn to Deuteronomy 6, you find an aspirational vision for parents charged with the spiritual nurture of their brood. It is concerned is the transmission of faith from one generation to the next.
The charge to raise children in the knowledge and love of God is clearly given in the Bible, and teaching theology is one of the ways to fulfil that charge.
Isn’t it too hard to teach theology to little kids? If there’s one question I’m frequently asked, that’s it.
Over time we pray that this blog will become a significant encouragement, resource and source of theological stimulation to all those who seek to nurture and care for children and young people in the Christian faith.
