Equipping for Life
We are very excited for the upcoming release of our new book on parenting, Equipping for Life: A Guide for New, Aspiring & Struggling Parents published by Christian Focus. Being a parent is one of the greatest joys, privileges, and responsibilities with which God has entrusted us. Sadly, we live in a culture that in many ways diminishes the role of a parent and the task of parenting. Often the not–so–subtle message is that a career or some other avenue of self–realization is more important than the so–called dull and dreary drudgery of raising children. In view of this, we wanted to invite you into the vision we cultivated through our own experience as parents and in our family: raising children as a gift from God, to the glory of God.
Resources for Parenting
Over the next several weeks, we’ll be devoting our attention to the subject of parenting in light of our new book. We’ll be sharing articles, blogs, and video content to help equip you as a parent (or future parent). The book is set to release on June 1, 2018 and can be pre-ordered on Amazon here.

In Equipping for Life, you will find an excellent resource to help you whether you are a new parent, a struggling parent, or in need of some fresh insight and encouragement. Packed with godly insights and encouragement, the Köstenbergers give us a thoroughly biblical grounding to the practicalities of parenting for the glory of Christ.
—Josh Moody, Senior Pastor, College Church in Wheaton
“Andreas and Margaret Köstenberger distill many years of wisdom and experience in this gold mine for parents, especially those with young children. Realistic rather than idealistic, hope-giving yet not trite, rigorously biblical yet culturally aware, no-nonsense yet light-hearted, this book will drive parents more deeply into the Bible in reverence, more deeply toward each other in unity, and more deeply toward their children in love.”
—Dane Ortlund, Executive Vice President and Bible Publisher, Crossway
“As a father of five children, I’m always on the lookout for helpful parenting resources. Finding parenting resources is easy. Finding helpful resources is much more difficult. In Equipping for Life: A Guide for New, Aspiring & Struggling Parents, Drs. Köstenberger offer a refreshing remedy. Equipping for Life presents exegetical and practical wisdom for constructing a biblical home and rearing children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Every Christian parent ought to read this book.”
