I was looking for a parenting book with Biblical grace based premises. I chose the book based on a title. However, as I read the book it's very apparent that grace is very much a theory and not yet part of the authors life. Almost as if Christ had NOT PAID ALL our sin on the cross and grace was given as a reward for good behaviour. I gave two stars as there are few good points but premiss is not grace where God deals with us as his children and disciplines us but not out of wrath. Also the author holds the view that unsaved person is not capable for any good deeds if God was not helping us. Humanists are extremely good people even though our human goodness is not an acceptable offering before God. So this is not well explained view among many other statements. I gave this book to someone else and they were discouraged even from first few pages. Grace based parenting by Tim Kimmel gives balanced view of Christian parenting.
