This is a book about transformation — sometimes sooner and sometimes later — of an angry, defiant teen.
More immediately, though, it’s about transformation of that teen’s fearful, exasperated, and hurting parents. There is no silver bullet that will transform an angry teen into a respectful, responsible young adult. However, there is a God who can transform us, the way we parent, and the atmosphere we allow to develop in our home. This book draws parents’ attention to their need to pursue and be satisfied with God’s glory, which in turn allows them to seek change in their teenager’s heart. It shows parents how to reestablish godly family leadership and helps them to find the joy of the Lord — even if their teen doesn’t change.
“This book opens up a whole new universe of parenting that finds its hope and practical direction in the glory, presence, promises, and grace of God. When you rest in these things, you can weather the storm of dealing with a rebellious teenager while responding in radically new ways to the trouble that God alone is able to still.”
