    1. This review originally appeared on my blog castrobabble4 out of 5 StarsCategory: ParentingPublisher: Cruciform PressBuy: Intentional Parenting: Family Discipleship by DesignIf you haven't read a book published by Cruciform Press, you need to know their books are intentionally short (approx. 110 pages). They are not intended to be complete treatises on any one topic; rather, they provide clear, concise, and biblical instruction on a specified area regarding the christian life. You can read them i [...]

    2. Little strikes godly terror in the hearts of believing parents more than when they consider the concept of how to faithfully disciple their children. We all know that we are to raise our children in the fear and instruction of the Lord. We all know that we must be wise and disciplined as we try to carry out this task. Yet, when all is said and done, we still need help, and we know that too. In Intentional Parenting, Tad Thompson, a second-generation pastor, presents helpful, simple, and logical [...]

    3. I am sometimes wary when I hear the phrase "intentional parenting," because of it's occasional exercised meaning of obsessive parenting, narrate-every-move-parenting, helicopter parenting, or the like. However, the focus of intentional parenting in Intentional Parenting: Family Discipleship by Design is what parenting looks like in the context of intentional family discipleship.Author Tad Thompson uses the metaphor of various rooms of the house to examine what the framework of intentional disc [...]

    4. Intentional Parenting“The ultimate goal of discipleship is that our children will come to delight in the grace of God and desire to love and obey him. They will develop these attitudes only if they understand what God has done for them (p. 60)”This brief book starts and ends on the right path, and there is not a ton of fluff or unnecessary examples. Simple truth from scripture, simple imagery to make truth stick, and simple instruction to help initiate and cultivate a family devoted to being [...]

    5. The OverviewThe word "intentional" has become so overused as of late that I was a bit skeptical of this book despite trusting the publisher. However, Tad Thompson uses the word in the appropriate context and not to just draw attention to his book. The main point of this book is that discipleship within the family is not another program, but rather a mindset of being intentional with your parenting. It is one of the most theological, yet incredibly practical books on parenting that I have ever re [...]

    6. A few useful quotes:The gospel must always be taught as a God-centered message. The good news is not that we should do something, but rather that God has already accomplished salvation for all who will repent and believeGod has not given us Christ so that people will make much of us; he has given us Christ so that we will make much of him!Family discipleship is ultimately a commitment to be a disciple yourself. You can’t teach your children what you don’t know. You can’t model for your chi [...]

    7. I guess I expected more insightful commentary on a Godly family life. I can't argue with the basics of what he wrote about, but that was just it, it was pretty basic. I'd recommend this book for someone who honestly is unsure of the kind of action and disciplines it takes to lead their family life - so maybe fairly recent converts. But having grown up as a pastor's son, and being in and around church the better part of my life, I didn't find any new concepts for me in this book.I've read several [...]

    8. I am reading this even though I don't have any children. Great book so far! I want to read this and would love to encourage my church family to read this book. (3-18-2014) I enjoy my bookworm time and reading from Intentional Parenting by Tad Thompson in my Kindle Touch. I think that I found some errors that need to be corrected, but I might be wrong on that. Great book to read. I would encourage every parents to get this book. If you do get this book, you all will be thankful. Grandparents, ple [...]

    9. Short books seems to be popular these days and this one certainly fits the bill. You can read the whole thing in a couple of hours. Personally, I think adding a bit of length could be a good thing but taking the book as it is intended (an introduction) there is certainly value here. I appreciate the categories presented in chapter three (gospel, big story, big truth, commission, disciplines, living and worldview). Every parent needs to decide the corpus of what they want their children to know b [...]

    10. The book contains lots of truth and a lot of good practical help towards the end. However, since I've read and listened to a lot on parenting throughout the years, I found the content primarily a re-hash of what others have said. I didn't feel like this was a unique contribution and I really asked myself in the middle of this book, why did this need to be written when there are so many great books on parenting/family discipleship already? Having said that, I was motivated to be more intentional [...]

    11. A simple practical guide to family discipleship. A solid resource to get started with how to disciple your children intentionally, for the purpose of them treasuring Jesus above all. The book has plenty of practical steps on what to do to begin, and where to go from there, as far as alternate resources. I give this five stars, not necessarily because I would read it again, but that it gives a practical series of "todo" items to get you moving into discipling your children, starting with your own [...]

    12. Parenting books are nothing new, nor are parenting books from a Christian perspective. What helps this effort differentiate itself, then, is the built-in brevity of Cruciform Press’ books and the succinct manner in which Thompson addresses the subject. The ‘room’ metaphor occasionally seems forced, but the principles behind them are firm. With a helpful blend of tools as well as methods to implement them, Thompson challenges Christian parents to purposefully embrace and fulfill their God-g [...]

    13. This is a simple and practical book on how to intentionally disciple your family. Thompson states that there are several key "ingredients" in order to help your family grow in Christ including the gospel, the big story, big truths, worldview and spiritual disciplines. One helpful aspect of the book is his list of suggestions for further reading in these areas. Perhaps the most important and helpful principle was his emphasis on the fact that the most important principle in parenting is for the p [...]

    15. A good book on Christian parenting and discipleship in the home. It has several good examples, thoughtful questions, and very practical advice. One caveat though this book is not for everyone, but only Christian parents who are serious about taking steps in the discipleship of their children. If that describes you, it will certainly be worth your time and investment.

    16. A good basic primer on parenting. Though I did not learn new information or new techniques in parenting, it was good to be reminded of the basics. Thompson's pastoral exhortations re-motivated me to devote myself even more to loving and training my children.

    17. The book is pretty short, so it's a good volume to dip into for a general overview of parenting with a gospel focus. There were some good take aways as well, but there are other books that I think do a better job.

    18. Encouraging brief on biblical parentingNot a lot of fluff, just practical encouragement on the process. No guilt trips, just a simple goal: lead your children to treasure Christ above all. It's hard, time-consuming work, but it's why God gave you children.

    19. This is a very helpful book that is extremely accessible and not simply recipes for parenting. He has a good balance of gospel perspective and application in your home without getting you caught up in simple Pharisee methodology. I'll post a review to my blog sometime soon.

    20. Excellent! Short (I read it in one evening) & clearly stated. This will definitely be a source for the family discipleship class my husband & I will be teaching at our church! Full review to come

    21. great book, worth reading and rereading. Reminds you of the ultimate goal of Christian parents and inspires to that end.
