About the Book:

Walking with God as a Christian Parent: Developing Wisdom for the 21st Century leads readers into a deeper encounter with God’s divine and unshakable parenting plan. The chapters have been specially researched and designed to show how Christian parents, teachers and educators are learning and growing in their distinctive personal situations. The unique testimonies and life stories describe and explain the joys and challenges of parenting in the real hope that we will be encouraged by sharing in the wisdom that comes from bringing up children according to godly principles.

 

“Raising a child today is more challenging than ever before, with an unprecedented range of influences and experiences making an impact on parenting decisions. Walking with God as a Christian Parent addresses these complexities clearly and simply. It is a work of collective wisdom that speaks to every parent, empathising with their struggles, pointing them to the Bible, and encouraging them to be God-honouring fathers and mother. A great read!”
