"Need an introductory text for parents to the topic of discipling children, perhaps in a church where this simply isn’t the way dads and moms think about their role? If so, give some consideration to Intentional Parenting by Tad Thompson. It’s a clear and simple text on family discipleship, centered on the gospel rather than on human successes or external behaviors."See All

"Dr. Tad Thompson’s Intentional Parenting is a practical page-turner that encourages fathers to engage the hearts of their families with truth and grace. In an age when truth is either ignored or despised, it is refreshing to see a book written for ordinary fathers who want their families to be sanctified by the truth (John 17:17). Thompson writes with grace which reminds us that parenting, like every aspect of Christian discipleship, flows from the sweet mercies of Christ."See All

There are literally thousands of books available on how to live various aspects of the Christian life. Of these, at least a couple of dozen pertaining to family life and child training are well worth reading.
This is not one of those books.
This book is designed to help you take those other books, as well as all the sermons, teachings, and exhortations you have received on child training and leadership in the home, and make sense of it all. Pastor Tad Thompson has assembled a biblical approach to effective family discipleship. Let him share it with you in this clear, encouraging, accessible book.
This is not another book of tactics and techniques. It is a book of strategy for parents who want to be intentional about discipleship in the home.
