In The Christian Parent's Toolkit, Sarah Johnson sets out to show the real difference faith can make to life in general and to family life in particular with a contribution to society that goes far bond what many would assume. She demonstrates how faith brings perspective to life and provides a sane and viable alternative to atheistic materialistic individualism. It is when children come along that issues of faith often demand to be considered. Parents look for help to bring up their children and for spiritual direction. This book addresses these concerns in short practical chapters, looking at each stage of a child's growing up. It will remind people that the popular scientists haven't got it all right; faith is alive and well and a crucial part of our existence.
