Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Twenty girls and twenty boys, ten each from Baptist, Catholic, Jewish, and Hindu families, all between the ages of four and twelve, provided the material upon which psychologist Heller draws in order to tell us what children think about God. Some of the children's ideas are stereotypical: the boys think of God as pragmatically ra tional and distant; the girls think of God as aesthetically oriented and close. But readers may also be sur prised at the depth and freshness of the ideas expressed by these children. Since our ideas of God are rooted in our childhoods, this book helps us un derstand our own thinking. We learn, too, how responsible we and our adult world are for children's thinking about God. Certainly recommended for reli gion and psychology collections, but also for general collections. John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ. Lib., New York

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book based on a study of childhood spirituality. In interviewing children, the author has found
a window into some very universal and inspiring themes.
