Out of Print but worth obtaining!

Consider this part two of my last post. I can't say enough about this book. It is one of my personal favorite non-fiction books. Every parent should have this in their home library. Whenever I see it at a used book store, I buy it to give away to another parent.

Here is a review from Publisher's Weekly on Children of a Greater God (click to see multiple copies available) ~

"By drawing on the classics in music, literature, the visual arts and scripture, and by living with parents who set an example themselves, children have the ability, Glaspey believes, to assume right moral values and to embrace Christianity on their own. Himself a parent whose background lies primarily in the areas of intellectual and cultural history, Glaspey presents sound arguments braced with commonsense ideas and substantiated by superb appendices. Followed faithfully, this is a book that will indeed help parents help children to the strong foundation that comes from learning to think for oneself and away from the more shallow footings that come from always being told what to think."

As Goethe so aptly put it ~

"A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that wordly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul."
