Their Name Is Today
Reclaiming Childhood in a Hostile World
by Johann Christoph Arnold
"Welcome reading for parents, grandparents, teachers and all those who care deeply about nurturing the next generation of happy, healthy, whole children." — Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund
Popular author Johann Christoph Arnold takes on technology, standardized testing, overstimulation, academic pressure, marketing to children, over-diagnosis and more, and calls on us to find creative ways to help children flourish.
"Reverence is more than just love. It includes an appreciation for the qualities children possess (and which we ourselves have lost), a readiness to rediscover their value, and the humility to learn from them."
"Arnold's basic message is clear, and well worth heeding: a deep reverence for children will make the world a better place."—Publishers Weekly

We need to allow children to be children for as long as possible. They need time to breathe in and breathe out. They need to play.

Arnold will disturb graciously but insistently, teach with wisdom, and encourage with hope. We might even say, "This might be how Jesus would think about this."
Perhaps most importantly, Arnold also offers hope and strategies for helping our children grow and learn in a way that protects and inspires them, leading to well-adapted, emotionally-fulfilled, and content adults.
