Links and Book Review: Getting Children To Heaven Edition

I enjoyed Craig and Janet Parshall's book, Traveling a Pilgrim's Path. It is a unique help for parents using PIlgrim's Progress as a guide. The authors state in the introduction:

As Bunyan began scratching out the story that would touch generations, he was doing something for us as 21st century Christian parents. He was telling a tale so biblical in its foundation, so universal in its application, that it can gide us so we driect and protect our families in the decade ahead.
Each chapter begins with an excerpt from a modern version of Bunyan's classic. The Parshalls offer sections titled Practical Progress for Parents and Kids, Principles and Parental Action. A lot of resources and ideas are included in this book. I found encouragement in these final words of the book:

When we follow Christ and guide our precious kids to do the same, our story will end at no less a place than the glittering streets of Heaven.
Oh, that it may be so!

Here are some things I found on this topic while browsing the Internet this week:

University of Virginia sociologist W. Bradford Wilcox..says that... for the most religious parents, “getting their kids into heaven is more important than getting their kids into Harvard.”
My comment: If you mean parents that follow Jesus, you are absolutely right!

Game for Teaching First Time Obedience
What you can do for parents even if you're not a parent
