"Jim Newheiser has given us a little gem of parenting wisdom and grace in this booklet! Don't be fooled by the size, because the content is rich and radical. Jim cuts through all the fog and hype of so much of the Christian parenting materials and gets to the heart of what God's Word actually says that is sometimes less than what we parents were hoping for!
Jim brings clarity to what we as parents can and should do, while cautioning us to take a step back from all the 'formulas' that too often spur us to charge in with a detailed plan to what too often is nothing more than legalism and pride cloaked with a biblical veneer. Caution: Don't read this unless you want to be reminded of just how weak and dependent we are on God's grace and mercy in this whole parenting process! But remember - when we are weak He is strong. (2 Cor. 12:10)!
When parents look at today's church and the larger culture, it seems more important than ever to raise godly, faithful children - for the sake of both their families now and their children's future. Many parents strive to find a formula guaranteed to make their kids turn out right, and there are plenty to choose from - perhaps too many. Are any of the methods worthwhile? Where should a parent start?
Jim Newheiser provides insight into the jungle of parenting formulas and techniques, critiquing them against the only faithful guideline for raising children and for all the rest of life - God's Word. He teaches parents how to discern the value of different formulas, explains why they often fail and what truly determines how children turn out, and encourages them with the only plan for parenting that is founded on authority we can trust: the gospel, which is bigger than any formula.
