"A family is an art form. A family is an exciting career, because an art form needs work."
In an age when the survival of the family as a living, loving unit is being threatened as never before, Edith Schaeffer presents a heartening view of family life. The family: It is an ever-changing mobile of life . . . a center for the formation of human relationships . . . a perpetual relayer of truth . . . a museum of memories . . . all of these and much more.
Edith Schaeffer's wisdom in these pages is drawn from sixty years of family experience. Written with rare insight and empathy, What Is a Family? explores the problems and challenges facing all Christians today. Mrs. Schaeffer focuses on the beautiful things a family can be with touches of imagination and careful expressions of forgiveness that offer hope and encouragement to those who treasure the values of family life.
