Publisher's Summary

In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything "right" and raise up "good" children, it's easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.

In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God's plan for us as parents. Outlining 14 foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God - grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents.

Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children's hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.

Grace over Anger is His Perfection

Tripp's theology is so different from mine and yet so compelling. Grace is Good.


My attention to this work was immediately as I read through each chapter's heading and synopsis. Tripp's approach in parenting through grace is Biblically sound. Our Father changes us within through grace and conviction and so it is grace and conviction through Him that changes our children. We are to be His ambassadors of change in the lives of our children and grandchildren and others for that matter. Thank you Dr.Tripp!

One of the best parenting resources I've found.

This book is awesome! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting practical, biblical guidance on residing children. Paul Tripp does an outstanding job clearly showing the source of conflict with children and a practical, biblical real life way that *every parent* can lead their kids to a healthy lifestyle and relationships. This book exceeded my expectations.

Great job Mr. Tripp!

Life changing book...for EVERY person not just parents!

I can't recommend this book enough! It removes the massive burdens I had as mom to raise perfect children and put it directly in the only one in control....God! Not a book of lists of things to do....but a book of heart transformation that will change the way you relate to every situation-not just parenting! I enjoyed the audible version so much that I ordered the book so I could have access to constant reference!

Amazing and enlightening! A MUST read!

This is such an amazing book! It was encouraging to hear that Gospel centered living doesn't stop at parenting and that it's okay to live with a heart of humility with your children as well. In my culture elders are right and if they're not it's ignored, I didn't/don't want to be that patent. I want my children to love Jesus not just while they're in my house but when they leave, this book was a great reminder of the need to reflect Christ's love & grace in ALL areas of my life but enforced how important it is to do so with my children. I intend on rereading this book as often as possible!

Best parenting book I have read/listened to

This book challenged me as a parent in so many ways. It drew me closer to my God and Savior as a parent. It pointed with every phrase at the issue of our heart instead of ways to modify behavior. This book is filled with cutting words written and spoken with nothing but love and compassion and grace and mercy. It brings needed, godly correction tenderly.

Good for all stages of parenting.

Make sure you get through the entire book. So as to not take the author's message out of context. I am thankful for this book.

Must Read- a Phenomenal Gift to Parents!

One, I liked that the narrator sounded like Paul Tripp- this was an awesome coincidence! Two, so, so, so much wisdom I have been putting to practice with my 15 month old and almost-five year old. The heart- focusing on prayerfully guided our children to understand their heart in its sinful state and their great need to repent and find forgiveness and transformation through our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus! I am purchasing a copy of this book so I can flip through its pages and highlight the points that I want to refer to again and again, as well as share with other moms!

Backbone book for Christian Parenting

Every christian parent should read this book. It is biblically sound and it really has the ability to make a "heavy burden light". It will change your worldview and the Peace of Jesus will be released in Your hear. Most of all Your Children will be blessed and God Glorified. Read it read it read it!

Great book

Paul Tripp has nailed the issue of parenting. We want quick fixes and better strategies, but we really need a changed mindset, to understand what the purpose of parenting is, and that we can only achieve that purpose by God's grace. This book won't fix all your issues, but your perspective on those issues will change, as you understand bad behaviour reveals the heart of your children, and their need for Jesus. You'll even thank God for those hard moments.
The voice of the narrator was too quiet, needed to turn volume up quite loud. also, I wish the narrator would have made the sub-headings more obvious. Sometimes it took me a few seconds in to work out it was a heading, rather than a bad sentence.
