Pre-order my upcoming book, “The Kingdom of Children!”

I am super excited to announce that you can now preorder the print version of my upcoming book on child liberation theology, The Kingdom of Children! Coming November 14, 2023 from William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, with a foreword by the visionary Cindy Wang Brandt, my book draws from sacred texts, other liberation theologies, educational pedagogy, and social science to break through the silence surrounding children and their undermined spiritual agency in America faith communities. It argues that not only is a child liberation theology necessary, but that it is possible for children to do that theology themselves. Like adults, children can be prophets, leaders, and theologians.
