"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 imageo 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 childrens' lives--poverty, child labor, war, and the sex trade--seem overwhelming.


DAVID H. JENSEN is assistant professor of Reformed Theology at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Austin, Texas. He is the sub-editor for Religious Studies Review and the author of In the Company of Others: A Dialogical Christology (The Pilgrim Press, 2001).
