From the Back Cover
Elisabeth Elliot on . . .
"The establishment of a child's trust in God begins with the trust in the word of his parents."
"It is important to choose the right time, the right place, and the right tone when correction is needed."
"Courtesy is plain old-fashioned thoughtfulness. Do for him or her what you would want done for you."
Teaching by Example
"The example of parents, for good or ill, is an influence far more profound than can be measured."
Elisabeth Elliot, one of the most loved and respected Christian communicators of our day, reveals cherished memories and valuable insights she has gathered from her experiences growing up in a Christian home. Through the stories of her parents, grandparents, and siblings, Elliot extols the importance of obedience, prayer, and forgiveness, among other lessons she learned as a child.
Complete with eight pages of treasured Elliot family photos, The Shaping of a Christian Family is an inspiring book for new parents, experienced parents, and all who have come to trust Elliot's compassionate wisdom.
