"This highly engaging book brings fresh new insights to the difficult task of helping parents instruct their children in religious faith. Wigger weaves insights from his own family with reflections on biblical stories. The result is a retelling of the stories that shows how richly they can add to any child's experience of the dynamics of family life. Parents, pastors, and religious educators will benefit from this valuable book."
Robert Wuthnow, director, Center for the Study of Religion, Princeton University
"With clear and compelling descriptions Brad Wigger makes available a rich set of resources within the Christian tradition, the Bible, and communities of faith to strengthen the sacred rhythms of family and religion. He provides a theological and biblical primer that many of us within the church have looked for as we seek to be teachers and spiritual guides to our children."
