The first half of the book builds a strong Biblical foundation about wisdom, what it is and isn’t and presents practical understanding of it in context of family. The second half builds on that foundation with application and practice, including Chapter 9, where he brings in the youth ministry element discussing the importance of “wise influencers”. Similar too many of the great books that are coming out, each of the chapters also end with a “do something” challenge. Each of these gives a fun suggestion for parents to do with their kids to reinforce what the chapter has covered.
This book is not just another parenting book for you to throw on your shelf or reading stack this a true resource. If you are a parent and doing youth ministry this absolutely a valuable read. Just as important, as youth ministry moves toward an inter-generational/family focus, this book will easily become one that key in that movement.
