Wise Stewards combines biblical, theological, and philosophical reflection to construct an everyday ethic and practice of parenthood that is distinctly Christian. Addressing practical concerns such as how family members should relate to one another, how they should conceive of their roles, and how they should carry out their tasks, Austin helps parents apply these core ideas to their daily lives. Filling a noticeable gap in parenting literature, Wise Stewards brings the methods and insights of Christian philosophy to bear on the family in a way that is accessible, theoretically sound, and intensely practical. Paperback.

This volume is a philosophy of parenting. Philosophy may give the impression that this book is abstract and unrelated to life. Not true. It is intensely practical, showing how a philosophical foundation manifests itself in the everyday life of Christian parenting.
