Description: 

Nowhere are the problematic aspects of the biblical text so evident as when it is examined from the point of view of the situations and needs of children. On the one hand, the Bible is seen as the repository of truth and tradition, while on the other, much of its content can seem uselessly complex, morally questionable, or downright dangerous. By examining a number of key biblical passages as case studies, as well as a number of background readings from recent research in child development, children's spirituality, and children's liberation, this course will explore these problematic aspects of the Bible, as well as offer some practical suggestions for responding. Students will have opportunities to raise critical questions and develop their own stance with regard to the biblical text
