Review of Book:
We don't have to go far to find a great parenting book. In fact, there is an abundance of people willing to teach you how to parent better. But "great parenting" alone has yielded many of the poor results we see today. Alan Melton and Paul Dean have gotten it right. If we are to see young men and women who look like Christ, then we must disciple as Christ did. In Disciple Like Jesus for Parents, you'll be challenged to realize the death of "because I said so." Our children are reading our actions because they have been engineered by God to do so. Will they see Jesus or a detached set of beliefs you once held? Discipling our children is the longest running gig we'll have, we've got to get it right!
As a missionary to university students for years, it was my job to fill in the gaps left by the church and well-meaning parents who missed the mark. I can't express the number of college students I counseled who had grown up in a Christian home but had little to no understanding of what it meant to be a Christian. Their parents had hoped they would "just get it." Our children don't "just get it" they must be taught to follow Christ: that is they must be discipled. Discipleship is the parenting wave that is now! We've got to model for our children how to live Godly lives just as Jesus modeled it for those the Father entrusted to Him. Read Disciple Like Jesus for Parents and prepare to have a paradigm shift. Your children are depending on it. Meeke Golden Addison, American Family Association
