Publisher's Summary

The Orthodox Christian tradition is filled with wisdom and guidance about the biblical path of salvation. Yet this guidance remains largely inaccessible to parents and often disconnected from the parenting challenges we face in our homes. Parenting Toward the Kingdom will help you make the connections between the spiritual life as we understand it in the Orthodox Church and the ongoing challenges of raising children. It takes the best child development research and connects it with the timeless truths of our Christian faith to offer you real strategies for navigating the challenges of daily life.

The best parenting book I've read

This is the first parenting book I have read that truly respects who we are as a family growing together in Christ. no systems or gimmicks. Just firm limits, realistic expectations, and calling us to repentance when our kids (as well as ourselves) fall short. I'll give this to all the new parents in my life, and I only wish it had been written when we had our first child!

Very beneficial and practical!

I find it very beneficial, as it gives the general guidelines to parents and church servants about what to expect from children, and from ourselves. Also, it points at what our goals should be in every intentional interaction with children.
And, it has many practical examples, which brings it to life.
Highly recommended!

Very best child-rearing book *ever*.

This was the most helpful and inspiring book. Also a great eye-opener. I intend to listen to it over and over, at intervals, for as long as my children are growing up under my care.

Phenomenal book!

As a pastor and parent I have found this book to be down to earth and thoroughly inspiring. There are a lot of parenting books out there but this one joins the best from psychology, scripture and the Church Fathers. I believe all Christian parents ought to read this book and to strive to live out the principles that it so clearly sets forth.
