About this Item

"According to Marva Dawn, neither parents nor a village is sufficient for the raising of children. Such limited resources are a sign that people have forgotten that God matters. In this book Dawn, with her usual incisiveness, reminds us of the basic practices of the church that makes it possible to form children capable of resisting the destructive ethos of our world. Hopefully this book will be read widely and well." {Stanley Hauerwas}. This book has 256 pages. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. Bookseller Inventory # 047677

About this title


How can we help the church's children not to make the same choices as the children of the dominant culture around them concerning their sexuality, their use of money and time, their attitudes toward work and life? Is it still possible in our post-Christian, post-modern society to raise children with Christian faith and moral character? In this sensitive and astute work, Marva Dawn insists that forming genuinely Christian children is not a lost cause if congregations, pastors, and parents wake up to the present crisis of a society at odds with the gospel and to the crucial need for deliberate formative efforts and intensive discipleship in both home and Church. Drawing on thirty years of experience working with young people in churches and schools, convocations and camps, Dawn examines some of the forces in our culture that harm our children's spiritual development and suggests biblically centered parenting and mentoring habits that are necessary for producing godly and faith-full children today.
