Teaching Your Children about God: Modern Jewish Approach, a Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many parents find it easier to talk to their children about sex and other intimate matters than to answer questions about God, prayer, good, and evil. In fact, parents may feel they don't know the answers to such questions for themselves, much less for their young children. In Teaching Your Children About God, Rabbi David Wolpe shows Jewish parents how to openly explore the idea of God with their children. Through poignant anecdotes and practical exercises, Wolpe teaches how parents can guide children in the practice of prayer and create an atmosphere in which children feel comfortable questioning and wondering about God, life, and death. Wolpe also offers invaluable insights into children's spiritual needs, reveals the powerful effect faith can have on a child's self-esteem, and enables parents to understand their children's fears, dreams, and hopes. Perhaps most important, this wise and potentially life-changing book shows parents who may feel something missing In their own spiritual lives that it is possible to nourish their own souls even as they nurture their children's.

Synopsis:

For modern Jewish parents, Rabbi David Wolpe offers an accessible, illuminating guide that shows them how to explain spirituality and the important themes of Judaism to their children. Through engaging and touching anecdotes, Wolpe provides parents invaluable insight into nourishing their own souls as they nuture their children's.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 234-237) and index.
