There are literally thousands of books available on how to live various aspects of the Christian life. Of these, at least a couple of dozen pertaining to family life and child training are well worth reading. This is not one of those books.
This book is designed to help you take those other books, as well as all the sermons, teachings, and exhortations you have received on child training and leadership in the home, and make sense of it all. Pastor Tad Thompson has assembled a biblical approach to effective family discipleship. Let him share it with you in this clear, encouraging, accessible book.
This is not another book of tactics and techniques. It is a book of strategy for parents who want to be intentional about discipleship in the home.

"[A] practical page-turner that encourages ordinary fathers who want their families to be sanctified by the truth.” (Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan)
Great material. Very practical, and very biblical. Appreciate him identifying and calling out false gospels for what they are - lies.
Achievable tasks and disciplines to build into to being intentional about discipling our children.
normal, flat, some missteps
Great book, definitely worth a listen, and it encouraged me.
Take some pieces with a grain of salt - 'if you don't take your kids to church every Sunday no matter what, they'll percieve that Jesus is not that important to you'
I'm not sure that's the case. I understand the sentiment, but we cannot be that legalistic about our faith. And we cannot equate a church building/event with how much we love Jesus. We should love other people always, in all ways, THEN our kids will know we love Jesus, not because we showed up to a building every week, even when they were sick. That sounds awful.
The reading is ok, there are many points where the rhythm is interrupted, or words are stumbled over that should have been edited or over-dubbed, they are distracting. Also, the EQ is a bit too bassy, took some adjustments to make it clear in my car.
