Discover a grace-filled, gospel-centered approach to parenting with this book by mother/daughter team Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson. In their desire to raise godly children, Christian parents can drift toward rule-centered discipline. There is, however, a far more effective method—a grace-motivated approach that begins with the glorious truth of God’s love for sinners.

In Give Them Grace, parents will learn how to connect the benefits of the cross—especially regeneration, adoption, and justification—to their children’s daily lives. Chapters address topics such as our inability to follow the law perfectly, God’s forgiveness and love displayed at the cross, and what true heart obedience looks like. Fitzpatrick and Thompson also discuss discipline, dealing with popular culture, and evangelism as a way of life.

It is so encouraging to read a parenting book that points parents to the grace of the cross and shows them how to be instruments of that grace in the lives of their children.

Paul David Tripp, president, Paul Tripp Ministries

Grace for both parents and children flows through the pages of this book; I only wish I had read it at the beginning of my parenting instead of the end.

A lot of books talk about gospel-centeredness in theory; this book shows you how to apply it to one of life’s most important relationships.

Comforts from the Cross provides women with bite-sized readings to remind them of their security in Christ and of his love and ministry in their busy lives. It dusts off the facts of the gospel to show how ancient truths such as justification, sanctification, and redemption can free and enliven their souls every day. Even more, these five-minute celebrations of the gospel relieve readers of legalistic condemnation and empower them for joyful obedience by engendering fresh love for the Savior. Fitzpatrick’s book helps active women grasp the practicality of the gospel message and experience its deep comforts.

These 31 short readings will scoot you up to the banquet table of God’s grace and glory and leave you feasting on your Savior and the cross.

—Brad Bigney, senior pastor, Grace Fellowship Church, Florence, KY

Comforts from the Cross presents an endearing view of Christ that will encourage Christians with a fresh hope in their Savior.

Many churches believe psychological and pharmacological strategies fail to address deep spiritual and mental health needs. These churches are reaffirming the sufficiency and power of the Scriptures to change lives. To aid churches in ministering to broken and hurting people, the authors of Counsel from the Cross present a counseling model based on Scripture and powered by the work of the wonderful counselor, Jesus Christ. Through careful exegesis and helpful case studies, they demonstrate how to provide consistently biblical, gospel-centered counseling and explain why it is important to do so. The authors’ combined backgrounds—one, a woman trained in biblical counseling and the other, a male professor of practical theology—bring balance to this work, making it relevant for those who counsel as part of pastoral ministry and for all involved in mentoring or discipleship.

A triumph of a maturing biblical counseling movement.

—Tedd Tripp, pastor, author, international conference speaker

This book triggers worship and hope with exhilarating descriptions of the gospel of Christ and shows us how to live out the love and freedom of the gospel in the relationships and struggles of everyday life.

Ken Sande, president, Peacemaker Ministries

All Christians, especially pastors, counselors, and church workers who yearn to see genuine healing and transformation in their families and churches, should practice the principles of this book personally and use it to help others.

Joel R. Beeke, president, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

A treasure of gospel-proclaiming, biblical, and practical help for every person striving to grow in grace and help others to do the same.

—Tara Klena Barthel, author, Living the Gospel in Relationships

Elyse Fitzpatrick and Dennis Johnson present a compelling case for the very radical and eminently practical power of the gospel in helping counsel broken people.
