What People are Saying About This
“Give me some tips on parenting” is not something I’d ask of many. I would of Lehman. I find it nearly impossible to read a book on parenting if I don’t know the author’s family. I do know Lehman’s. That’s why I found it impossible not to read this book. It reads as smoothly and pastorally as if he were your mentor across the coffee table, pouring into your life. Think of this practical and biblical book as strong morning coffee for the long day of parentingwith extra shots of Scripture.
Dave Hosaflook, Missionary to Albania
John doesn’t merely talk the talkhe walks the walk. This book isn’t full of common-sense parenting, because biblical parenting is neither common nor natural. It demands supernatural wisdom and power.
