Child Evangelization

From: Volume III, Issue 2: Spring 1983 Pages 5-13


Historically there have been a variety of approaches to the issue of the evangelization of children. Each of these approaches has been based on certain theological or psychological foundations. This article attempts to describe five of the more prominent approaches to the evangelization of children, to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of each, and to offer guidelines for a theology of childhood evangelization. The critical areas of concern are the true nature and demands of saving faith, the problem of original sin, the developmental characteristics of children, and the unique status of children born to Christian parents.
