The cover proofs are in, and they are beautiful! Pre-orders of the book should be ready mid-January (if everything goes as planned), but here’s a sneak peak to the back cover and inside flaps.
Chris and Wendy Jeub have this regret: they wished they understood at an earlier age the profundity of parental love. It takes all parents by surprise at first, but it’s understood by most grandparents. Think of the grandma and grandpa of a dozen grown children and more grandchildren than you can count. Their advice: Love your children more.
Life gets complicated, though. Popular sentiment discourages children; you’re almost crazy if you don’t cut the line, “get fixed,” and keep from having more than one or two children. Personal fear weighs in, too, doubts that you’d be emotionally, physically or financially able to raise a child.
The Jeubs have grappled with these doubts, and they’ve wrestled with the flow of the culture. They’ve come through with a message about love that will transform how you think about children and family life. It’s a perspective of faith, a walk of conviction and adventure. Love Another Child is a joy to read, but also encouraging and persuasive.
Family is a fortress. Parental and sibling bonds are unshakable. The flourishing of loyalty and love is the desired blessing of every man and woman.
But that perspective got lost somewhere. Family is trivial. Children just a consideration. They disorganize a couple’s tidy life. They’re messy, harmful to the environment, financially and physically exhausting.
Chris and Wendy Jeub invite couples to reconsider this skewed perspective toward the blessing and heritage of children. They grapple with modern arguments like population control and the environment, but turn quickly to root hesitations like fear and family dysfunction.
And they encourage you to following God’s prodding to have and love another child, a most excellent calling indeed.
