Children in Crisis: A New Commitment

Under the guidance of editor Dr. Phyllis Kilbourn, a group of writers who know intimately the distressing 
circumstances of suffering children give Christians and people of compassion everywhere new reasons for caring and acting.

Children in Crisis spells out the role of the church in a biblical, God directed response to the ills of children This unique book acquaints the reader with the problems of street children, sexually exploited children, children of war, child laborers, the girl child, children with HIV/AIDS and more.

After exposing the problems, Children in Crisis shows the reader how some have responded. It also helps the reader learn how to counsel wounded children and nurture them spiritually. A special Tool Box section introduces Christian agencies that specialize in providing help to hurting children.
