Rather than discussing their possible vocation, discussions of children tend to center on their rights or duties. Does God have intentions for their young lives
before they grow up and become “real” people? Distinguished jurist Patrick McKinley Brennan has gathered sixteen authors to approach this idea in various ways, from historical to psychological to theological. The authors explore throughout whether it is possible for adults to either squander their children’s vocations or instead to help discover and embrace them.
