August 20, 2016 — Leave a comment




Today is the birthday of Marva Dawn, one of the theologians who has been most influential for our congregation at Englewood Christian Church.

To mark the occasion, we offer the following introductory reading guide to her most significant works.

We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and offered a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve also included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.


5. Is It a Lost Cause?: Having the Heart of God for the Church’s Children


Children are marginalized in many church communities, and Dawn calls out this reality and challenges us to take seriously the shared work of caring for the children of our church.
