“Parenting” by Paul David Tripp surpasses 100,000 in print with Crossway

WHEATON, Ill.—Crossway is pleased to announce that Paul David Tripp’s book Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family(Crossway, September 2016), winner of the 2017 ECPA Book of the Year Award for Christian Living, has surpassed 100,000 units in print sales.

In this book, Tripp presents readers with a big-picture view of God’s plan for parents, providing fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel. Parenting moves beyond mere strategies and techniques to show readers their need for the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to free parents from the burden of trying to manufacture life change in their children’s hearts.

“There is nothing more important to consistent, faithful, patient, loving, and effective parenting than to understand what God has given you in the grace of his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ,” writes Tripp. Embracing this grace yields a grand perspective on parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.

Available in both hardcover and ebook formats, Parenting has received commendations from Ann Voskamp (author of One Thousand Gifts), TobyMac (hip-hop recording artist), and many others.

“[Parenting] is both theological and practical, a rare combination for a parenting book,” writes Francis Chan, author of Crazy Love. “For years, people have asked me to write a book on parenting. After reading this, I am convinced that I could never write one better than this. I’m so glad I read this, but I wish I could have read it twenty years ago.”

Justin Taylor, Publisher for Books at Crossway, notes, “We give thanks to God that so many parents are picking up this book with a desire to have their families shaped by the profound reality and implications of the gospel for all of life.”

Tripp is also the author of New Morning Mercies, which has sold over 250,000 copies. For more information about the author, visit
