The Disciple Making Parent is chock full of biblical wisdom--you will find yourself underlining line after line, page after page. Chap is not afraid to call parents to action, but he also points us to grace. Most importantly, he's got the gospel right, and he knows how to help parents apply it in their family. -- Marty Machowski, Pastor, Author, The Ology: Ancient Truths Ever New, Long Story Short: Ten-Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God, and The Gospel Story Bible.
Chap Bettis' book is so comprehensive that I could remove all the parenting books I have and place only The Disciple-Making Parent on the shelf! Chap has packed his book full of so many transferable concepts. -- Jackie Kendall, President of Power to Grow Ministries and Best-selling Author, including Lady in Waiting and Surrender Your Junior-God Badge: Every Woman's Battle with Control.
Chap Bettis has given us a well-organized, well written and insightful book on the subject of passing your faith on to your children. Chap rests his case on Scripture and writes with clarity and intention about how you can pass the baton of your faith to your family. I enthusiastically recommend it!-- Tom Bisset, Author of Why Christian Kids Leave the Faith
As a pastor, I'm more concerned with giving my church biblical principles than I am new methods or ideas. This book is full of such principles that will give parents a sure guide to discipling their children in the gospel. We encourage our church to use what's written within these pages.-- Kevin McKay, Senior Pastor, Grace Harbor Church (SBC), Providence RI?
Looking back on twenty-nine years of homeschooling our six children, many years of being a homeschool leader, and now watching our own children teach our grandchildren, I am reminded how easy it is to miss the point. We begin homeschooling to teach our children to love God and serve Him with their lives; if we aren't careful, academics and urgent life situations sidetrack us from this. Chap's book is an excellent resource to help parents know and remember what really matters while providing a realistic view of what it takes to succeed. I highly recommend it to all parents. -- Walt Grayum, Past President, MassHope (Massachusetts Homeschool Organization of Parent Educators)
After reading the first few chapters, I knew that this book needed to be in the hands, minds and hearts of all persons who parent, grandparent and have opportunities to teach children today! Through personal illustrations, descriptive research and scripture, Chap shows the reader why and how to disciple his/her child to know and follow Jesus Christ...... for a lifetime! -- Dr. Marcia McQuitty, Professor of Childhood Education, Southwestern Theological Seminary
Answering questions for parents is one thing. Knowing the right questions to ask and the right answer to give is another. Chap has spent the better part of 25 years discipling parents and their youth in learning how to ask and answer the right questions for Christ's glory and their joy and faithfulness. His teaching has provided parents with a solid biblical foundation for Christ-centered discipleship and care. In The Disciple-Making Parent, Chap equips parents to take up the mantle of discipleship, wielding the Word of God winsomely, wisely, and in gospel-centered ways. -- Bauer Evans, Senior Pastor, Crossway Church (SGM), Franklin MA

As I read this comprehensive guide on spiritually guiding our children to choose the Lord and not the world, I was convicted deeply and humbled often. I was convicted, as there were some things in it that I do well, but many things not so much. I started the book and all I could think was, "This other person needs to read this." I didn't get too far before the humbling began. I quickly realized my own inadequacy and shortcomings in not only my parenting, but in my own walk. Fortunately, we serve a merciful God and good Father, who gives us wonderful gifts we do not deserve, and one of those gifts is this informative, encouraging, and Biblical book from Chap.
