"11th Commandment" Honor Thy children. 11th Commandment is a poignant and powerful exploration of the tragedies wrought by the victimization and abuse of children. Drawing the reader with insight and dead-on observation of the atrocious tragedy of child abuse committed daily by American Adults, no one will close its pages without an impression of the devastation suffered by so many of our children. It will be the readers who will champion for The 11th Commandment, “Honor Thy Children,” be etched into every bible printed. Described by Kirkus Review as being; Compelling, Explicit and well-constructed. “While it is evident the narrative was composed with care, it is a well-constructed cautionary tale of the problems facing families trapped in generational patterns of abuse.” Mr. Christensen is an advocate for children throughout the world, having been in foster care for many years, and later adopting seven children. Mark has dedicated the book with a picture of his son, Cyler Brice Christensen, who was thrown down a flight of stairs at the age of 3, suffering a traumatic brain injury. Sadly, Cyler passed away at the age of 11 having given Mark the inspiration to write the book that will show the children how to heal.
