Who will parent your child? You? Or the surrounding culture? The Gospel & Parenting keeps the gospel as the central focus of parenting. Following the structure of all the books in The Gospel for Life series each of the five chapters addresses one of these questions: What are we for? What does the gospel say? How should the Christian live? How should the church engage? and What does the culture say? By focusing on these questions, you'll be looking at parenting from every angle of the Christian's life.
We live in a society of broken homes.
Having parents in the home doesnt mean that parenting is actually happening. Parenting is a God-given task that ensures young children are protected and nurtured into maturity in the fear and admonition of the Lord. But America and the church faces a crisis of parenting: detached or absentee fathers, single mothers, and grandparents raising the next generation. Whats more, how should parents actually parent? And what does the gospel have to say to the epidemic of family breakdown, and the difficult task of raising children well?
So, what now?
Editors Russell Moore and Andrew T. Walker of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) assemble leading voices to frame the issue with a gospel-centered perspective. The Gospel for Life series gives every believer a biblically-saturated understanding of the most urgent issues facing our culture today, because the gospel is for all of life.
