Is there any mission field as close to our hearts as our own family? If you are a parent, it can be an overwhelming burden to pass on your faith to your children. It is a unique form of “evangelism”, much different to sharing with other adults but still has some similarities. Today Andy and Kristi speak to the authors of Faith That Lasts: A Father and Son on Cultivating Lifelong Belief where they outline three dangerous myths that we all too easily buy into: that fear can protect our children, that information can save them, and that their spiritual education belongs to the experts.
Stuart McAllister comes from a non-Christian home in Glasgow. He joined Operation Mobilization in 1978 and was once imprisoned for distributing Bibles in Yugoslavia. An itinerant speaker, Stuart regularly speaks in churches, universities, and other forums (including a Solas conference in 2010) all over the world.
Stuart’s son Cameron McAllister was born on the mission field in Vienna. Cameron is now an itinerant speaker, broadcaster, and writer, based in Atlanta in the USA.
