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!

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!

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!

excellent read for parents and intending parents

help us parent our children the way God parents us- lovingly and graciously. helping them submit to authority as we as parents are also subject to God's authority.
the books teaches we are not so different from our kids because as our kids need our parenting, we also need God's parenting

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.
