Black and White Fire: The Interplay of Stories, Imagination and Children's Spirituality
Trousdale, Ann M.
International Journal of Children's Spirituality, v9 n2 p177-188 2004
This paper explores the potential for using narrative to foster children's spiritual growth. It discusses the nature, origin and appeal of story and presents theoretical perspectives which form a rationale for using non-sectarian children's, adolescent and young adult literature for spiritual development. Such books avoid church-and-state controversies while providing a fresh approach to educators where religious and spiritual education are mandated. (Contains 3 notes.)
