Editorial Reviews

R. Kent Hughes
"Gospel-Powered Parenting is a wise, enduring prescription for parenting because it is joyously biblical and comes from a pastor-theologian who has done it—as his family wonderfully attests."
Art Azurdia
"What is the disturbing feature that almost universally distinguishes family literature purporting to be Christian? Well meaning but impotent moralizings that effectively neglect the gospel by virtue of assuming it. Bill Farley pushes us beyond this, setting forth a parenting approach that is decidedly Christian precisely because it is informed and motivated by the transforming power of the gospel."
Douglas Bond
"Bill Farley’s new book on parenting is rock solid. It is so because it is so profoundly grounded upon the all-sufficiency of the Word of God and the Gospel of grace. When it comes to parenting, Farley is no neophyte; he has been in the trenches raising sinful kids by the grace of God and for the glory of God for two decades. Nor is he going to give you theoretical platitudes; he is honest about his own deficiencies and his great need of Gospel wisdom in parenting. Here is Jonathan Edward’s theology made accessible to depraved parents raising depraved kids in a depraved world. This is, ultimately, a parenting book full of hope, hope grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
Tim Challies
"I wondered, as I closed the cover, “could this be the best book I’ve ever read on parenting?” ... what I do know is that it told me exactly what I needed to hear at this moment and did so more than any other parenting book I’ve read. It had just the right combination of affirmation (your struggles are universal struggles, your joys are universal joys) and exhortation to both encourage and challenge me in all the right ways. I highly recommend it to any and every parent."
