A robust defence of the importance of faith in childhood, and in parenting the child, in the face of increasingly secular Western culture. In our modern, secular, society, religion is becoming not only marginalised but increasingly tarred with the negative brush of extremism. Sarah Johnson sets out to redress this imbalance, showing the real difference faith can make to life in general and to family life in particular, with a contribution to society that goes far beyond the common misconceptions of it being outdated and irrelevant. She demonstrates how faith brings perspective to life, and provides a sane and viable alternative to atheistic, materialistic individualism. It is when children come along that issues of faith often demand to be considered. Parents look for help to bring up their children, and for spiritual direction.This book addresses these concerns in short, practical chapters, looking at each stage of a child's growing up. It will remind people that the popular scientists haven't got it all right: faith is alive, well and a crucial part of our existence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Pithy chapteres full of profound and unexpected insights ... it's not at all dogmatic but stimulating and very readable ... Bracingly and humourly, she encourages us to believe that bringing up our children in the light of faith is natural, healthy and helpful - and certainly not odd, ridiculous or even damaging, as has often been insinuated." The Brown Book (Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford), April 2009
mention in Bookseller Buyers Guide, 1 January 2008
'An entertaining book ... I would recommend it not just to parents but to anybody who would like to think about how their faith relates to everyday life, and enjoys a chuckle along the way.' David Prescott, The NEWSpaper, 2008
