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.
Marva J. Dawn (Ph.D., University of Notre Dame) serves as theologian/educator under Christians Equipped for Ministry of Vancouver, Washington and as a Teaching Fellow, Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver.
Her books Powers, Weakness, and the Tabernacling of God and The Unnecessary Pastor with Eugene Peterson both received Christianity Today's book award in the category of the Church/Pastoral Leadership. Her other books has been quite provocative with regard to contemporary trends in worship and society such as Reaching Out Without Dumbing Down; Is It A Lost Cause? and A Royal Waste of time.
Most recently she has authored Being Well When We're Ill: Wholeness and Hope in Spite of Infirmity and In the Beginning, GOD: Creation, Culture, and the Spiritual Life.
