Today's Rock Musicians Communicate Their Values to Your Child Every Day. Do You?
Beyond a doubt, the issue of rock music is tearing apart Christian homes, churches, and schools. But the influence of rock music on your child isn't the worst thing that can happen to him or her. Even more tragic is the loss of communication between parent and child.
It is estimated that as many as 70% of the children from Christian homes fail to follow Jesus Christ as adults. What's the problem? According to Al Menconi, parents are failing to communicate spiritual truth. Though they know that their Christian beliefs are correct, they are unable to pass along the truths of Jesus Christ, the Bible, Christian morals, and so forth without losing the child's interest.
Al provides parents and other caring adults (pastors, youth workers, teachers, etc.) with vital information and practical applications on how to use the issues surrounding popular music and entertainment to communicate relevant spiritual values to young people. He also gives direction on how to lovingly encourage a taste for Christian music in the home.
Rather than telling children what to think, this book will help you teach your children how to think. It will help you draw closer to your child by interweaving the powerful influence of music with an even stronger one - a parent's love.
"Music is the primary instrument of communication to teenagers and we need to know what they're hearing. Without being hysterical or unfair, Al Menconi sends out a message that is alarming, and one we all must hear." Tony Campolo
"Today's music is one of the most powerful vehicles to the minds and emotions of our youth. Al Menco is a much needed voice for them and their parents. He is biblical, relevant, and offers positive solutions." Tim and Beverly LaHaye
