Item description for Graced Vulnerability: A Theology Of Childhood by David H. Jensen...
Overview "Children of God" is often used to describe graced human existence. Yet theologians rarely consider childhood as an explicit theological topic. Jensen argues that vulnerability is a dimension of the imago Dei, and suggests that childhood provides a window for understanding the shapes of graced human life and the violence that inhibits life. This yields a compelling reinterpretation of sin, church practice, and Christian witness in a world in which threats to children's lives such as poverty, child labor, war, and the sex trade, seem overwhelming.

From the cover Aug 25, 2005
From the back of the book: Despite the frequent use of the term "children of God" to describe graced human existence, Christian theologians rarely consider childhood as an explicity theological topic. The author argues that vulnerability is a dimension of the imageo Dei, and suggests that childhood provides a window for understanding 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, he presents a compelling reinterpretation of sin, church practice, and Christian witness in a world in which the threats to children's lives-poverty, child labor, war, and the sex trade-seem overwhelming.
