With L.R.Knost's compassionate tone, relational style, and intelligent, well-researched writing, Jesus, the Gentle Parent is like a walk through the scriptures with a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide as L.R. takes on Dr. James Dobson, Tedd Tripp, Gary Ezzo, and Michael Pearl, among others, breaking down their doctrine and reexamining such issues as spanking, instant obedience, and more in light of the original Hebrew and Greek texts of the scriptures. L.R. also offers practical, gentle alternatives in this one-of-a-kind, must-read gentle Christian parenting guide. The Parenting Review
Jesus, the Gentle Parent is a book to read, reread, and internalize. In these pages, you will find keen insights and powerful Scriptural truths...Before agreeing to write the foreword for Jesus, The Gentle Parent, I carefully read and examined how L.R. had engaged the subject, and I can say without hesitation that I am a better person, a better father, a better human being, and a better Christian for doing so. -Samuel S. Martin, Biblical scholar based in Jerusalem, Israel and author of Thy Rod and Thy Staff, They Comfort Me: Christians and the Spanking Controversy

My favorite quote from this beautifully written and extensively researched book is, "Grace has a face and it is YOUR'S." As Believers, we are the hands and feet of Christ and our first (and sadly, most overlooked) priority is to be that to our children. I love that this book offers practical, Biblically based ways in order to do just that in the every day as we parent from newborn to adulthood.
This book is helping me parent more in line with Jesus' heart of love and grace.
