Mary DeMuth in Authentic Parenting in a Postmodern Culture writes with refreshing candor, humor, and gentleness contributing significantly to the practical and philosophical considerations of parenting in our complex times. Rather than “seven easy steps for perfect parenting,” she provides a humble perspective on the God-given stewardship of children. Her book, full of engaging personal successes and failures, encourages readers to prayerfully individualize every activity, conversation, and act of devotion to the developmental maturity and unique gifts of each child. I heartily recommend this book for parents, those aspiring to parenthood, and even grandparents who yearn to better understand the complexities of raising children today.
