This book takes a practical, biblical–theological approach to what a mom and dad can do together to parent in a realistic, relational and responsible way.

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!
