Occasional Paper #12 – Are Children Human?

By Barbara Pitkin

Are Children Human? brings together historical theological, and pastoral issues in order to help the church explore the quality of its relationship with its children.  Are Children Human? may seem to have an obvious answer, but the way we answer will affect the ways we shape church life. “Let the little children come to me,” said Jesus, “do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the Kingdom of God belongs” (Mark 10:14). Who are these children? Barbara Pitkin helps to answer the question with grace and faithfulness.
