This lively volume attempts to show how central Christian convictions inform the age-old practices of parenting and how the experience and practice of parenting shape Christian faith today. By paying special attention to some of the challenges and issues of parenting in a globalized world, the book offers a fresh vision of parenting that promotes justice, human flourishing, and recognition that all people are children of God.

"David Jensen's Parenting weaves everyday experience and Christian traditions to produce a wise, complex, and beautifully written exploration of parenting as a gift. Theologians, students, parents, ministers, and others will be inspired to think outside current boxes by this honest and searching new vision for raising children. Here is theology at its profound and transformative best." --John Wall, Professor of Religion, Rutgers University
