'Too often decisions about ministry with children are devised around activities, allowing thinking about our actions to take a back seat. Thinking and re-thinking in this area is vital! In this useful collection of essays, voices from diverse perspectives make clear issues which surely invite reflection and deep change.'
- Dr Rebecca Nye, Associate Lecturer at The Open University; Trainer at Godly Play UK
