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.
Former missionary Elisabeth Elliot is the author of more than twenty books, including Passion and Purity, The Journals of Jim Elliot, and These Strange Ashes. She and her husband, Lars Gren, live in Magnolia, Massachusetts.

We are just beginning our journey as parents and are so thankful to have this resource to look to as we go. One question we ask of Christian parents with adult Christian children is, "how do you keep your children in the faith?" This book has been a confirmation and a comfort to us as we work toward this question in our family.
One practical thing to note when reading it, is that it begins in a rather round-about way. You have to get through the first few chapters that set the stage for Elisabeth's upbringing to understand better where she's coming from.
