It combines discussions about contemporary approaches to religious education with a focus on practical implications and strategies.
The book begins with a survey of the contemporary understandings of the child and childhood from a range of perspectives. These modern understandings of childhood provide a foundation for studying present options for the design and implementation of religious education programs for children.
Growing in Wisdom includes an extensive glossary of terms. Each chapter offers tasks related to the material presented. The attention of researchers and theorists to the religious education of young children has never been more active or comprehensive.
