World-Proof Your Kids
Raising Children Unstained by the World
Many Christian parents are at their wit’s end about raising their children in a healthy and spiritual way. Increasingly the influence of the world, with its ‘me first’ obsession, is causing problems within the Christian home. This influence causes Christian families to fall into Sisemore’s four categories:
- The disillusioned family
- The distracted family
- The disciplinarian family
- The dedicated family
But all end up being influenced by the culture rather than by their faith. Is your family falling into an unhealthy pattern of behavior? It’s time to find out and put things right. If you want to help your family then the Sisemores are here to help break the cycle.
“I found this book not only challenging, but deeply encouraging as it shows how the truth and power of the Word of God can be effective in everyday situations. I’ve found it helpful to use the different chapters as a basis for my own daily prayers for our family. I would strongly recommend it to other parents.” — News & Views, FIEC
“Excellent stuff for any thinking Christian parent or any thinking Christian parent or youth worker.” — Ann Benton, Author and family conference speaker, Guildford, England
“Dr Sisemore’s clear, biblical theology is the anvil that has shaped and informed his own professional practice in child psychology. Avoiding the sentimentality of so much contemporary thinking, he is utterly realistic about the fallenness of human nature, yet equally sure of the richness of book personally, and as a pastor I recommend it warmly to all who want to nurture children in the true gospel faith. Digested and applied, World-Proof Your Kids will help us to bring our children for Christ in a hostile world as he wants us to – in faith not fear.” — William Philip, Minister, The Tron Church, Glasgow, Scotland
