Publisher's Description

This book is not what you expect. It's about children, but it's not for children. It's not about how to educate children. It's not directed at parents. It's not the sad story of hurting children. It is a book for the church. It is a call for the church to take up its God-given role and serve children. "We need this book. I have been convicted by this powerful, Biblical challenge to hear the cry of the children and to love and serve them as Jesus did. Dr. Shank's appeal is urgent to church leaders but also to every Christian. He is writing to all of us who care deeply about children. It is a book that will inspire you to action." - Helen M. Young, Pepperdine University "Children Mean the World to God brings an awareness and urgency back to something that I believe is the heart of God. While the book challenges behavior change, it gives suggestions as to how to care for children. If you are needing a shot in the arm (and heart), this book will bring you back to the heart of ministry. I would hope that you pass it on to your leadership and make a difference in our churches from the top down." - Dudly Chancey, Professor of Youth Ministry, Oklahoma Christian University "This book deserves major attention Harold Shank shares not only his heart and soul but also God's heart for the souls of children. The theology is powerful but it is the practicality that moved me. This book is thoroughly researched and emotionally touching. With Harold, concern for children is no passing fancy, it is do or die - and it should be the same with all of God's children - old or young." - Paul Faulkner, Marriage Enrichment Seminars "Harold Shank has mixed in Ishmael, Eddy, Jonah, and April into confrontive concoction that guarantees we will never be the same. He admits his own failures to notice and care in such a way that we can look at our failures with him. We believe anew that we can change the world by changing a child." - Nick Boone, Lipscomb University Harold Shank's interest in children includes his role as President of Ohio Valley University, a school in Vienna, West Virginia, associated with Churches of Christ, along with serving as the national spokesperson for Christian Child and Family Services Association, a nationwide network of agencies ministering to vulnerable children and their families. Harold blogs about children and ministry on his website: For 21 years he taught young people at two Christian universities. With a Ph.D. in Old Testament, Shank is also the author of seven books. During his career he preached for 30 years and helped plant a dozen congregations. Harold and his wife, Sally, have two adult sons, Daniel and Nathan.
