In and 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.
All the moving, changing shapes of a family, ever in need of work, are shown in Edith Schaeffer's imaginative reflections on infancy to grandmotherhood.
Edith Schaeffer (nee Seville) (1914-2013) was born to American missionary parents in Wenchow, China, and lived there till the age of five. She married Francis Schaeffer in 1935, and they had four children. In 1955, Edith and Francis co-founded L'Abri, a live-in study retreat for those seeking intellectually honest answers about Christian truth, located in the Swiss Alps. Edith authored a number of books, several of them award-winning, about the Christian life and family values. She died in 2013 at home in Gryon, Switzerland, aged 98.
