From the Back Cover
Spiritual champion: an irrepressible follower of Jesus Christ who accepts the Bible as truth, lives by its principles, and seeks ways to impact the world and continually deepen his or her relationship with God.
It’s your deepest wish for your child: A vibrant, faith-filled life. Yet the day-to-day challenges of parenting can feel so overwhelming. How can you be sure you’re doing the right things to shape your child’s heart, mind, and spirit?
There is no one-size-fits-all instruction manual to follow if you want to produce children who mature into twenty-first-century disciples of Jesus. But in this book, world-renowned researcher George Barna reveals some of the pieces to the puzzle, pieces that will guide your journey toward raising an irrepressible follower of Jesus Christ. Some of his findings will encourage you; some will surprise you. But all of them will equip you for Revolutionary Parenting that works. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

What I like about this book is how accessible it is. There are many lists and stories. They look at how parents of great kids did and try to find common themes. Additionally, they interview the kids to validate the input from the parents. However, in all the analysis, they don't lose the heart of raising kids: every kid is different, there isn't one way, etc. It isn't just about the numbers. Overall a very good book on parenting.
Mr. Barna covers every - really every - area of parenting which takes this book way beyond other parenting books. To me, this book lays out all the the 'whats', which gives you an 'aha' at every area he covers. The book also gives the 'hows' but not too much indepth, since the 'how' differs per family.
I loved his previous book (raising spiritual giants) too, but since I'm not a native English speaker, I found the use of language of that book quite hard. This book is much more of an easy read to me (probably my English improved a little too...)
It's a nice short book that sums up all you knew - and not yet know - about parenting the right way.
- Great to base your parenting plan/helping parents plan off of.
- Also for those who aren't 'into' research (like me)
- Has a fresh, different feel to it compared with his previous books - although they're good too (this books seems to be very personal to both the reader and the author)
- Great for anyone working on raising children or helping those who do so.
