Title
Letters to God: A Study of Children's Religious Concepts
Abstract

Religious concepts of three age groups of children attending Christian schools (2nd, 5th, and 8th grades) are compared. The basic hypothesis of the study is that in an atmosphere of religious instruction, the child'€™s perception of God will move from external truth to the internalization and personalization of his faith. The results show that the concept of God does change during these developmental years from a transcendent figure to a more personal and internalized reality. This study suggests that mature religious perception is something which integrates and unifies the entire continuum of one's experience.
