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!

The message is essential, the reading horrible.

This book contains a gospel message that every Christian parent MUST hear. It is as essential to your presenting as Christ is to your salvation. On the other hand, accepting the subjectivity of personal taste, the narration of this book is solidly the worst I have ever experienced. The narrator uses this breathy, melodramatic tone that made me want to laugh at first, but seven hours later I could barely survive to the end. The timing and word emphasis is so random it sounds as though the narrator understands phonics, not not the actual meaning of the words he's reading. From a technical standpoint the recording is terrible too. There is a loud background hiss and the acoustics of the room in which the book was recorded are evident and distracting. All things considered it sounds like this book was recorded using the integrated microphone on a laptop by a "friend" of the author for free as a favor. Only because the content was so compelling was I able to make it to the end of this recording.

Gospel

This book pointed me to the Bible and Jesus through every chapter!

My wife and I need Jesus, and my boys need Jesus; we all need Jesus, but we forget we need Jesus, and this book reminds that we all need Jesus!

I would give it to any person because they will hear the good new of Jesus. I would definitely give it to a parent because it portrays Jesus as the only answer to life's issues, and Jesus is really the only answer to life's issues!

Encouraged & need to listen on repeat

Loved it. What he's suggesting is not for the faint of heart or weak in mind...but I'm encouraged it's not I but Christ. There are great, practical examples that surely every parent can relate to and had wondered about.

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.

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.
