When parents look at today's church and the larger culture, it seems more important than ever to raise godly, faithful childrenfor the sake of both their families now and their children's future. Many parents strive to find a formula guaranteed to make their kids turn out right, and there are plenty to choose fromperhaps too many. Are any of the methods worthwhile? Where should a parent start? Jim Newheiser provides insight into the jungle of parenting formulas and techniques, critiquing them against the only faithful guideline for raising children and for all the rest of life God's Word. He teaches parents how to discern the value of different formulas, explains why they often fail and what truly determines how children turn out, and encourages them with the only plan for parenting that is founded on authority we can trust: the gospel, which is bigger than any formula.
