"Lauren and I first read Age of Opportunity almost fifteen years ago and it served as a foundation for how we have tried to parent. Through the peaks and valleys of raising our three kids, this is a resource that we came back to several times. I couldn't be more excited about this revised and expanded version."--Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church, Flower Mound, Texas; President, Acts 29 Network; Coauthor, Family Discipleship: Leading Your Home through Time, Moments, and Milestones

Far too many parents enter their kid's teenage years with fear and cynicism, hoping to merely survive. But what if you could view parenting not as a season to survive but as a golden age of opportunity? Every parent of a teen should read Paul Tripp's book. It will transform your perspective on parenting.--Deepak Reju, Pastor of Biblical Counseling and Family Ministry, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC; Author, Rescue Plan: Charting a Course to Restore Prisoners of Pornography and Preparing for Fatherhood

Paul David Tripp transforms the paradigm for parenting teenagers from one of fear and expecting the worst to that of hopefulness and meaning. Tripp reveals how parents often forget the character of God and the power of the gospel and consequently view the teenage years as a season to be survived and endured. While raising teens has its unique challenges, Tripp reveals how remembering who Jesus is and believing in the gospel enables us to embrace this time as a hopeful, constructive opportunity with our kids. This is a game-changing book for parents of teens.--Cameron Cole, Founder, Rooted; Author, Therefore I Have Hope: 12 Truths That Comfort, Sustain, and Redeem in Tragedy; Coeditor, Gospel-Centered Youth Ministry: A Practical Guide

Recently I remarked to a friend that this is a heartbreaking time for teens: suicide, depression, anxiety, FOMO, the transgender movement, the pandemic, isolation, and hopelessness are rife, making these difficult years even harder. All of which makes me that much more thankful for Paul Tripp's work in Age of Opportunity. In the wide world of books about parenting, there are only a few that don't push a doomed prosperity gospel--"Do it our way and your kids will be great!"--rather, Paul's updated classic work offers the one hope for parents and teens: The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. I'm eternally thankful for Paul and heart to guide and encourage parents.--Elyse Fitzpatrick, Author, Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus

We need this fundamentally hopeful book about parenting teens. The hope is not grounded in practical helps--although Tripp offers many. The hope is not distant from the battles; it shines in the dark. The hope is grounded in God who sent his Son to save us. Parents of teens, take up and read--and hope!--Kathleen Nielson, Author, Prayers of a Parent Series; Speaker

Age of Opportunity has had a tremendous impact on my parenting, so I'm incredibly excited about this new, updated version. Paul has so helpfully applied his understanding of the gospel and the human heart to our personal walk with Jesus, our marriages, and our ministries--I am excited to see his application of the gospel to parenting, particularly of teens, made accessible to a new generation. Age of Opportunity avoids the formulaic, "how-to" approach to rearing children, and instead shows how to apply the gospel to the unique spiritual struggles of your child's heart. For many parents, the teen years feel like a wilderness. This book will give you a compass to guide you through. Though I have read dozens of parenting books, there are two or three that have profoundly reshaped my whole approach. Age of Opportunity is one of those. You'll love it, and pass it to a friend.--J.D. Greear, Pastor, The Summit Church, Durham, North Carolina
