Christian parents are not exempt from the struggle and heartbreak caused by rebellious children. This softcover version of the classic resource The Hurting Parent by Margie Lewis, written with her son, bestselling author Gregg Lewis, for the first time offers the rest of the story that inspired the original edition of this book. The Hurting Parent takes a realistic approach to the problems young people face today peer pressure, easy access to drugs and alcohol, and cultural influences that pull them from their family s faith. The Lewises acknowledge there are no simple formulas or simple answers. But the biblical insight, emotional understanding, and practical encouragement they offer will be life changing. Written by a hurting parent for other hurting parents, this book, by ministering to hundreds of thousands of families over the past thirty years, has earned a prominent spot not only on the personal bookshelves of countless parents and their family and friends, but also on the professional shelves of pastors, youth ministers, and Christian counselors.

Geoff on
In wrestling with the "Something To think About" sections at the end of each chapter, I think I am beginning to sense that I can change from being bitter and angry and unforgiveing-to being able to look at the bigger picture and so gain another perspective.The authors understand the struggle of accepting/rejecting the one we love when we are hurt- and yes the guilt!
There is the message that we are not unique in our feelings of desperation and despair- but neither are there any easy answers.His chapter on unconditional love I found particularly challenging.
His closing words:"We shouldn't think of ourselves as instruments of change but rather as changing instruments, growing closer and closer to our Heavenly Father, taking on larger and larger measures of His magnetism," continue to challenge me.
