About the book

As a Child: God's Call to Littleness

‘Beautifully written and produced’ ‘Packed full of thought-provoking truths’ ‘A good devotional read or for anyone with a busy schedule’

Jesus said, ‘I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children …’

These are radical words; potentially life-changing words. Yet how many of us truly believe that we need to become like little children? What might be the implications for our life and faith?

As a Child is an exploration of this call to childlikeness, this call to littleness – a call made not to children, but to adults – not to those who are naturally childlike, but to those who have grown out of their childlike nature.

It is a book for all who desire to grow in their faith, to enter into all that God has for us, to live the life God wants us to live and to be the people God wants us to be.

For all are willing to respond to Jesus’ call, and become like a little child.

As featured in Quiet Spaces, the prayer and spirituality journal from BRF.

Interested? Read the poem that started it all, the Preface and a sample chapter, Humbles. Or browse a Google Preview. Perhaps listen to an interview with me talking about the book and what inspired me to write it.

Thank you!


  1. Hello Graeme.
    Many thanks for your enquiry.
    The first chapter of “As a Child” (the Preface) is available via the “About the book” sub-menu (or directly at http://www.asachildbook.com/about-the-book/preface/). It outlines how I came to write the book and what I am trying to say through it, and hopefully will give some indication of whether it might be of interest to you.
    I have also submitted “As a Child” to Google Book Search. Once processed, it will be possible to read further extracts from the book, although I do not know how soon this will become available.
    I hope that this is of some help. If you’d like to know anything more, please just ask.
    Once again, many thanks for your interest.

Please do leave a reply – I'd love to hear from you.
