Parenting Toward the Kingdom:
Orthodox Christian Principles of Child-Rearing
by Philip Mamalakis, PhD

Parenting Toward the Kingdom: Orthodox Christian Principles of Child-Rearing by Philip Mamalakis, PhD
  • Description
  • Reviews

The Orthodox Christian tradition is filled with wisdom and guidance about the biblical path of salvation. Yet this guidance remains largely inaccessible to parents and often disconnected from the parenting challenges we face in our homes. Parenting Toward the Kingdom will help you make the connections between the spiritual life as we understand it in the Orthodox Church and the ongoing challenges of raising children. It takes the best child development research and connects it with the timeless truths of our Christian faith to offer you real strategies for navigating the challenges of daily life.
