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.

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.

Best book on parenting ever written

The truth in this book was painful to read, but will and has totally changed how I parent. I thank God for this book and plan on reading it many more times.

One dislike: I read the audiobook, which was poorly done. It sounded like someone did it at their desk on their Mac with some Airbuds. It's a bit rough.
