I feel Ripped Off - This is just Christian Dogma

Boo to the publisher and boo to Audible for not describing this book for what it is; a diatribe about following the bible, disguised as a book about parenting. God and Jesus abound in this book. The parenting advice is valid but simplistic and very much secondary to the main message. I want my credit back!
