Product Description

This book is about reconciliation and the healing of the child self--"the mutilated soul"--that all adults carry within themselves. Using the biblical image of the Garden, the author draws from the same biblical tradition that has contributed to the physical and emotional abuse of children to envision and initiate the healing process.

Publisher's Description

Theological ideas and biblical injunctions have frequently been employed to legitimate the physical abuse of children. Some theological ideas are inherently abusive because they create fear in a child's mind, causing a child to feel alone, odd, and of little worth. Donald Capps exposes the abuses that theology and the Bible have inflicted on vast numbers of children. In particular, he is concerned with the "hidden" abuses of children by well-intentioned adults and the role that religion plays in the legitimation of these abuses.

Author Bio

Donald Capps is William Harte Felmeth Professor of Pastoral Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey. He is the author of more than two dozen books in pastoral theology, including The Poet's Gift and The Child's Song.
