Description


A progressive Christian parenting book with a social-justice orientation

How do we build a better world? One key way, says Cindy Wang Brandt, is by learning to raise our children with justice, mercy, and kindness.

In Parenting Forward Brandt equips Christian parents to model a way of following Jesus that has an outward focus, putting priority on loving others, avoiding judgment, and helping those in need. She shows how parents must work on dismantling their own racial, cultural, gender, economic, and religious biases in order to avoid passing them on to their children. "By becoming aware of the complex ways we participate in systems of inequal­ity or hierarchy," she says, "we begin to resist systemic injustice ourselves, empower our children, and change our communities."

About the Author


Cindy Wang Brandt writes about faith and parenting, miracles in the ordinary, and beauty in the margins, tapping out words from the 33rd floor of a high-rise in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, where she lives with her husband, two children, and a miniature Yorkie. Her blog and newsletter can be found at cindywords.com.
