The account of Jacob and his family occupies almost half of the book of Genesis. It’s a captivating story about how God’s holy, eternal promises have coursed through the veins of very weak and finite human beings; it’s about how God can work through the mess and grime of family life to achieve his glorious purposes.

Here’s what people are saying about Big Picture Parents:

“I generally dislike parenting books as a genre – they usually leave me with the feeling that if I don’t implement their particular technique, I will break my kid.  Not so with this book. Big Picture Parents lifted my eyes to the big story of God and how he is at work in the world.  My story and that of my little family are enfolded in something much bigger.  That is the rock on which I can anchor my parenting.  I just ordered another 5 copies to give to friends.”

–Kylie

“I found the book most helpful and timely.  Having a big picture of parenting is essential, especially in this day of social media where conflicting and contrary voices compete so personally and pervasively.  As a parent – and I imagine especially a young parent – one can become so confused about so many things that challenge, degrade and obscure the big picture.
So far I think I have ordered four copies – with more to come!”

–Robyn Buchanan
