Raising a prodigal is every Christian parent's worst nightmare. Horrifyingly, George Barna contends that over 60 percent of Christian kids will run off to university and "lose their faith." Some pollsters believe the number is as high as 80 percent.

So what is the point of parenting if we can’t get our kids saved? While it is true that you can do nothing to get your child saved, you can do everything to be faithful to raise your children in the discipline and admonition of the Lord. That’s it; your assignment is faithfulness, not conversion. You are not responsible for the state of your child’s soul; but you are responsible to love, model, nurture, instruct, and disciple your child. You can either work with or against God in accomplishing t ...more

This book ended up being a bit different than what I had expected going in. I assumed it would give me insight and 'how-to' as a parent.

A great resource for parents and all who work with children

Written in a winsome and entertaining manner, this is not a "how to book" rather it is one that lays out the big theological principles of parenting and Christian discipleship. The book is just as helpful in the way it explains the gospel as it is in exhorting parents to rethink their parenting with a biblical lens.

Must read for all parents

This book is invaluable for learning the difference between raising children who obey out of fear and children who obey because they want to do what is right.

I liked the content of this book, but was distracted by the many typos and grammatical errors. Shame on the editor of this book.

Lots of Calvinism, but an interesting, Gospel-based approach to parenting.
