Top customer reviews
Path: Peace and Scott do a terrific job of providing 1) a biblical basis for what it means to be a godly parent and godly child; 2) a step by step look at different difficulties at various ages; and 3) counsel and guidance for those who feel as though they have failed.
Sources: Thoroughly grounded in the Gospel and the whole counsel of God
Agreement: I would put this on the Top Shelf of parenting books. We have been working through various books from this genre and have found this one to be one of the best. It has:
Helpful age specific struggles and counsel
Good steps, verses, and charts
Good 30 day devotional for those who have wayward children (or anyone who is struggling in their life!)
Great questions for review at the end of each chapter - perfect for parents to ask each other.
There is not a push to see conversion early in the life of a child, but there is a push to teach the Gospel from the very beginning. They also provide a helpful outline to help the parent do that.
Personal App: What is my purpose as a parent but to glorify God in all things and seek to point my child to Him?
Favorite Quote: "We can, with God's enabling grace and for his glory, faithfully honor God as we parent, even through the teen years" (14).
It would be worth another read and I would recommend it.
The first step you as the parent must decide before reading this book is if you simply want a quick fix to make your parenting life easier (which will ultimately fail), or if you desire to guide your child's heart through slow, consistent, and Biblical direction.
I am highly recommending this book to parents and even potential parents!
