My parents wrote this parenting book. Spoiler: they’re regular parents. And while they aren’t perfect, they sure did care for and invest in me. I turned out alright if I may say so myself – so give this book a read. I think you’ll find it to be an invaluable resource for you as you cope with your crazy kids. All that said, I give this book the official child–approved stamp!
David Köstenberger, Son of Andreas and Margaret Köstenberger
Andreas and Margaret give a biblically robust yet simple framework to keep us on track as parents. Our family has been encouraged as we’ve watched them become more like Christ while their children have become more like them and so have become more like Christ. May this be true for each of us who read and apply the experiences they share in this book!
