rsync over ssh without giving the user access to a shell?

What is the best way to give a remote user the ability to use rsync via
ssh without also giving them shell access?

I want the rsync user to authenticate via ssh.  I want to protect their
rsync session with ssh.  However, I do not want to give them access to a
shell on the Linux server where rsyncd is running.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.
