Book: Children's Music Ministry

by Connie Fortunate David C. Cook, 1981. 217 pp.

The subtitle, A Guide to Philosophy and Practice, indicates the scope of this helpful book. Part I "Biblical Perspectives," gives Old and New Testament principles and practices for worship. This section is appropriate to any discussion of worship*—not just worship for children. Part II, "Educational Perspectives," deals with how children learn and how they worship, based on their levels of cognitive development. Part III, "Contempory Challenges," offers practical advice for planning and administering a children's music program in church or school.

Harry Boonstra ( is former theological editor of RW and emeritus theological librarian of Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
