Essential Books on Children's Ministry


The October 18, 2011 issue of the Christian Century magazine has a list of five essential books on Children’s Ministry. Here is their list:

Both Karen DeBoer and Robert Keeley (my husband) are Christian Reformed authors. How cool is that!

I think the list is a good one. I have all but Enduring Connections on my shelf already (and that one will be added soon). This list was made by Karen-Marie Yust from Union Presbyterian Seminary. Karen-Marie is a well-known and well-respected name in the field of children’s ministry. In fact, if she had not created the list, her book Real Kids, Real Faith may well have been on it. That made me wonder what other favorites of mine would be on the list if I had made it. Here are four more that I would add to the list.

So, what books would you add?
