Paul David Tripp’s Bestselling Book on Parenting, Now with Study Questions

Sometimes parents wish there was a guaranteed formula for raising good kids—a certain list of rules to follow to ensure they’d have obedient children. But if moms and dads view their role through the lens of God’s grace, they will see that the gospel must first shape how they parent before they can effectively shape their children.

In the bestselling book Parenting, Paul David Tripp unfolds a more biblical perspective on parenting than merely adhering to a list of rules. He lays out 14 gospel-centered principles that will radically change the way parents think about what it means to raise up a child, informing everything they do as a parent. This edition includes a section of engaging study questions for every chapter, helping individuals and groups reflect on each topic in greater depth. 

  • Christ-Centered Advice for Families: Explains how the gospel should affect the way parents interact with their children at every age
  • Engaging Study Questions: Reflect on each chapter alone or as part of a small group
  • By Bestselling Author Paul David Tripp: Other books include New Morning MerciesReactivity, and Lead

Endorsements

“Paul Tripp constantly turns us back to the life-giving power of the gospel and God’s unfailing grace. Parenting our children is one of life’s greatest challenges, and Paul points us to the one thing that can make a difference—a genuine encounter with the living God.”
TobyMac, hip-hop recording artist; music producer; songwriter

“Simply put, I read everything that Paul Tripp writes. I can’t afford to miss one word.”
Ann Voskamp, New York Times best-selling author, The Broken Way and One Thousand Gifts

“This is the most meaningful book I have read all year. It is both theological and practical, a rare combination for a parenting book. For years, people have asked me to write a book on parenting. After reading this, I am convinced that I could never write one better than this. I’m so glad I read this, but I wish I could have read it twenty years ago. After reading Parenting, I was torn. Part of me wanted to sit, cry, and confess all of my failures as a parent. The other part wanted to scream with excitement for the tremendous insight I now have to be a better parent.”
Francis Chan, New York Times bestselling author, Crazy Love and Forgotten God

“I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is simply outstanding. This is Tripp at his best: he shows us the big picture of life with Christ and gets down to the nitty-gritty specifics of walking by grace through faith. Tripp's manifesto is about more than simply our duty as parents—it's about our privilege of being ambassadors of Jesus Christ to our kids. Moms and dads from every culture will benefit from Tripp’s call for us to live in light of the grace and hope we have in Jesus.”
Gloria Furman, author, Labor with Hope and Missional Motherhood

“This book is so timely for me. My bride and I are raising four children aged five and under, and we need help! It's easy to find books with parenting tips on how to correct our children's behavior, but Paul Tripp’s book goes far beyond behavior; he takes the reader to the source of the problem—the heart. If we understand our children at a heart level and have a proper understanding of the gospel, then we can parent them as God intends. Paul Tripp has written a simple yet profound book. Parents, you need to read this now. You will surely be blessed.”
Webb Simpson, professional golfer; 2012 US Open Champion

“I am an imperfect parent. You probably are too. Buy this book and soak in it. This is not another ‘5 Steps to Becoming a Perfect Parent’—instead, Tripp wants us to see our relationship to God and to our children through a big-picture lens. My wife and I are always-go-never-stop parents of young children. If you know the feeling, this book will be both challenging and refreshing, and ultimately it will be a great blessing to your journey. Tripp has made me think in a fresh way about the extremely important and tremendously challenging task that is everyday parenting. To raise up a child is a great responsibility—let us take it up with reverence, joy, and a loving heart!”
Jacob Tamme, former NFL® tight end
