Author: Johann Christoph Blumhardt & Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt
It is sometimes said that each child is a thought in the mind of God. But even if we believe this, and approach the children entrusted to us with reverence, we may often feel helpless-whether in the face of a two-year-old’s tantrum or a teenager’s silence.
In this little book, two fathers (themselves a father and son) share their thoughts on the essence of bringing up children, as well as some helpful practical advice. Both lived in Germany more than a hundred years ago, in an era when parents and teachers tended to be overly strict; today most tend to be very lenient. All the same, there is plenty in what they say that is timeless.
Plough seeks to inform, encourage, and challenge a wide range of thinkers and seekers on a variety of topics. Plough is the publishing house of a community movement of families and single people whose common basis is faith in Jesus. All the same, we acknowledge God’s working in all people, no matter their background or creed, who strive for justice, peace, love, and joy.
These books have changed our lives and we would like to share them with you!
