Read for my Family Discipleship Class.

Good book, motivated me as a parent... BUT it's was very dry in some parts. Hot and then Cold and then Hot and Cold again.

Apparent Privilege provides practical advice for how parents can step into their biblical role as spiritual leaders of their children. For example, Steve Wright does not simply say: “Parents should have some kind of regular family worship in their home.” Rather, he maintains this idea while providing practical advice for how to actually make it happen. “Start small,” he says, “Don’t be extreme by setting a standard of an hour each day for family worship. This will set you up for failure. Be real ...more

Apparent Privilege is a great little book that encourages parents to get serious about the discipleship of their children. The author does a great job bringing out statistical facts and reasons to be engaged and intentional. He skillfully shows that spiritual growth doesn't happen automatically... and the party primarily responsible for the spiritual development of children is not the church, but the parent.

Who is responsible for the spiritual growth of children? Far too often, Wright suggests, parents have assumed that churches or Christian schools are the primary spiritual care-givers, when the reality is that parents have the primary responsibility. He points out that, despite common belief, most teenagers cite their parents as the greatest active influence in their lives and he challenges parents (along with the church) to reclaim their God-given roles in the lives of their children.

A great encouragement. Concise and to the point, not belaboring it's points. This is a welcome addition to the "Christian Parenting" genre. The chapter on the "theology of family" makes this book worth the read all by itself, laying out seven foundations of God's intent with families. Christian parents (especially dads), read and be encouraged.

Steve combines scripture which stands alone telling our job as parents. He also combines research that is heart- breaking and challenging to me personally as a parents.

Captivated by Jesus. What a great way to describe our goal as parents for our children. Life is eternal.

I really enjoyed this book. Very Biblical full of great truths. The words written in this book can be applied to any household. Love the fact that it is about raising godly kids and not just good kids.
