Written as a response to daunting reports that Christian young people are leaving the church at a staggering rate, Faith That Lasts offers hope and direction to both parents and the local church. Jon Nielson presents much more than a step-by-step formula for parenting. Instead, he offers five gospel-centered principles, including modeling, balance and friendship. Faith That Lasts is essential reading for anyone who seeks to support lasting, authentic relationship between young believers and Jesus Christ.
