This book is a gift to Christian parents and to all who labor in hope that the next generations will put their confidence in God. Steve understands the crucial and indispensable role that parents have in pursuing this hope and serves us well with his experience, research and Bible-saturated insight and wisdom. --David Michael, Bethlehem Baptist Church (Minneapolis, MN)
With reThink, Steve Wright invited churches to reconsider youth ministry from a radically biblical worldview. In his latest book, ApParent Privilege, Steve takes the next step, inviting parents to reclaim their uniquely powerful, God-ordained role as the primary faith-shapers for their children. Laced with Scripture, stories and up-to-the-minute statistics, ApParent Privilege promises to prepare parents for the most important task of their lives. --Mark DeVries, author of Family-Based Youth Ministry (Nashville, TN)
With all of the 'clanging cymbals and resounding gongs' Steve Wright encourages us that the language of love, grace and truth needs to be continuous and apparent from our tongues to our children. Steve is guiding dads and moms back to their God-given privilege of being voices crying in the wilderness leading our children to the Savior through His Word. I was convicted that abdication of my responsibility to teach the Word of God to my children is spiritual desertion! --Kevin Carroll, The Church of Brook Hills (Birmingham, AL)
