"Adolescence is a gift," writes Pastor Eugene Peterson, "God's gift, to the parent in middle-age. This gift dimension of adolescence is my subject." Inspirational and encouraging reading from the author of the best selling Bible paraphrase, THE MESSAGE. 128 pages, from Eerdmans

"I'll dress the way I want!", "You wouldn't understand!", "I'm not going to church!"",You never trust me!", "You aren't going to tell me what to do!" Comments like these evoke a host of responses from parents of adolescents: anxiety, anger, detachment, despair. But Eugene Peterson believes that these kinds of encounters offer important opportunities for parents and teens to grow closer to each other and to God, that adolescence is in fact "a gift from God to the parent in middle-age". Like Dew Your Youth will help you view your son or daughter's teen years from a refreshing perspective. Peterson presents adolescence as a time for parents to enjoy a deeper, richer relationship with their children and for both parents and young adults to grow spiritually. In addition to a wealth of positive, effective ways to deal with many of the problems and pains of growing up, this encouraging book offers an understanding of parent-adolescent relationships that will promote an atmosphere of communication, trust, frankness, forgiveness, love, and harmony in your home. Study questions at the end of each chapter help you apply the practical, biblically based teaching offered here.
