Summary Even when you follow all the rules, life can go very wrong... Dennis Mansfield and his wife, Susan, planned for and expected every parents dream, but instead lived every parents nightmare. This haunting memoir tells the story of a father who diligently followed all the parenting rules that he learned from conservative Christian experts yet life with his son Nate went terribly wrong when the young man died at twenty-seven of drug-related causes. It wasnt that the principles Dennis followed were faulty; it was that the promised guarantee turned out to be void. The author, a national leader in the pro-family movement of the 1990s, reveals what did and did not work while raising a child within the evangelical framework. But rather than losing his faith and abandoning the God hed trusted, Dennis eventually found new joy and purpose with a more compassionate and realistic view of the roles parents play and the rules they follow. As you listen to this sobering yet refreshing account, you will find direction for your own parenting style and encouragement after lifes disappointments
