Let the Children Come: Preparing Faith Communities to End Child Abuse and Neglect
- Are children safe at your church?
- What precautions have you taken to ensure they won’t be abused?
- Do you know how to recognize the signs of child abuse and neglect?
- What should you do if you suspect a child in your church or neighborhood is being abused or neglected?
If you aren’t sure how to answer those questions, you need Let the Children Come, a new book from Herald Press that helps churches and church-related ministries learn how to keep children safe and strengthen families.
In the context of the Bible and faith, Let the Children Come helps Christians learn about their role in ending child abuse and neglect in all communities: church, home, extended family, neighborhood, school, work. Each chapter contains real-life stories, discussion questions and action items; the appendix includes prayers, readings and exercises for use in adult education.
