Parenting in Christ: Lessons from the Parables
See on Amazon:
Lessons from the Parables features ten short lessons, each based on a parable. Each callenges parents to consider an application as it pertains character development in parents and children. The lessons are intended to foster growth in Christ-like character and to provoke further thought and discussion, not to dole out rules and formulas. This book works best as a discussion guide, done in community. Each lesson ends with a personal challenge to practice the way of Christ.
This study has a companion guide for kids, Growing in Christ: Lessons from the Parables for Kids. Topics from the books are aligned from week to week so parents and kids can do them at the same time and have discussions about what they are learning.
"It is a lovely study on the parables' value for bringing up children. The format makes them very practical and useful for group study. Her insights into the implications for nurturing children (and adults) are excellent and highly applicable."
- Rev. Dr. William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary
"I love how Christina uses Jesus’s own lessons to us to help us understand how to parent in a Christlike manner. It’s easy to read and perfect for small group study. It leads parents gently to understand Who Jesus truly is and how to do there best to imitate Him in their parenting."
