As many Christians bemoan the deterioration of "family values" in our society, have we, as Christian parents, abdicated our responsibility by spiritually abandoning our children?Although the church has a part in our children's spiritual education are we not accountable before God for the spiritual development of our children?
Statistics reveal that Christian parents are rarely involved in the spiritual lives of their children. Scripture, however, paints a very different picture of what this relationship should look like. As parents, we have the responsibility to “drive” the discipleship process in the home. We must keep our hands on the wheel and take responsibility to guide our children as they journey through life. This includes purposefully sharing the gospel with them, teaching them the ways of the Lord, and modeling for them a Great Commission focused lifestyle. The purpose of this book is to examine the biblical responsibility parents have to be involved in their children’s spiritual lives and help equip them to take an active role. - Michael Kennedy
Besides laying out a clear study of the biblical foundation for his call to parents, author Michael Kennedy supplies a parent and church questionnaire to give the reader an assessment of their starting place and then proceeds to give practical stepping stones to begin raising their children in the admonition of the Lord.
