In an age where 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.
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.
