Jensen argues that vulnerability is a dimension of the imageo Dei, and suggests that childhood provides a window for under-standing the shapes of graced human life and the violence that inhibits life. By offering a fresh understanding of the vulnerable child in the image of God, Jensen presents a compelling reinterpretation of sin, church practice, and Christian witness in a world in which the threats to childrens lives--poverty, child labor, war, and the sex trade--seem overwhelming.

Seminary students, pastors, educators, resource center directors, and those involved in the discipline of spiritual formation will find this book useful.
