Christ often used children as examples for believers. He told Nicodemus that unless one is “born again” they cannot see the Kingdom (John 3:3). But what is it about children that makes them a model for the Christian life? Through psychological science, we have learned much about the way children perceive, think, and act from the moment they are born and throughout their childhood. If we apply this knowledge to the theology that Christ brought during His ministry, it becomes clear why the child is the model for faith. In this book, we will see through the child’s eyes and hopefully recapture the wonder we all felt when we first believed. We will walk through childhood together, learning not only about the psychology of children but also insights about our faith, our spiritual growth, the role of the Church, and other important topics.
