I finished reading this a couple of weeks ago. Excellent book. It is divided into two parts, the first talking about faith based parenting; the latter discussing actually shepherding a child through infancy, childhood, and adulthood. His whole premise talks about how a parents job is to not only correct a child's misbehavior, but to also get to the heart of the matter, the sinful nature of our children's hearts. Our job as a parent is to lead them to not only behave and make good decisions, but to turn away from their sinful nature.
