With the plethora of material on parenting
and the family, it is surprising and distressing to see how few books are
genuinely biblical. Here is a refreshing exception. Tedd Tripp offers solid,
trustworthy, biblical help for parents. If you are looking for the right
perspective and practical help, you won t find a more excellent guide. –John
Tedd Tripp knows what he is talking about and who he is talking to. He knows children, he knows parents…and he knows the ways of God. This book teaches you what your goals should be and how to pursue these ends practically. It teaches you how to talk to your children and what to talk about. It will inspire you to become a different kind of parent. This is a masterful book. –David Powlison
I am glad to recommend this book for its remarkably clear, biblical, and practical teaching. Earnest fathers and mothers will find it also eminently “do-able.” –Elisabeth Elliot
From the Inside Flap
‘Shepherding a Child’s Heart’ is about how to speak to the heart of your child. The things your child does and says flow from the heart. Luke 6:45 puts it this way: “]¬‚¬]out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.” Written for parents with children of any age, this insightful book provides perspectives and procedures for shepherding your child’s heart into the paths of life.
In this revised edition, Dr. Tedd Tripp not only draws on his thirty years experience as a pastor, counselor, school administrator, and father, but he also shares insights gained in many years of teaching this material in conferences worldwide, providing more valuable help for parents.
