In that light, Christian parents are called to celebrate and nurture the unique personality traits and talents of each precious one with a gracious and eternal perspective. Yet studies indicate seventy percent of teenagers from evangelical homes will drop out of church within two years after high school graduation.

Parenting with Kingdom Purpose looks at Bible teaching and the recent National Study of Youth and Religion to shape a fresh approach to raising children that will cut through the chaos of modern life and bring families closer to each other and the Lord.
