Everything I Know About God I've Learned From Being A Parent

Full Product Description

‘This book,’ begins author, Veronica Zundel, ‘is the story of my journey into and through parenthood. This journey was not an easy one, and it continues to be full of difficulties. Not only did I suffer from infertility and finally have a child at the age of 41 (making me an ‘elderly primigravida’!) but the course of my son’s development has not been the same as that of most children. This has meant that my husband and I as his parents have had to fight many battles on his behalf, and continue to do so.’

Late motherhood and a special needs child are not the only battles Veronica had to fight, and her victories there are not the only joys of triumph she discovered along the way. ‘Parenthood,’ she reflects, revealed ‘parallels’ between how she behaved and felt towards her beloved child, and how God might feel and behave towards her and his other children.

In ‘Everything I Know About God…’ the writer makes connections between her attitude towards her son, John, and what might be God’s attitude toward us. She helps us start to look afresh at things we might have been taught in our Christian life – as established in faith or new to Christ, and to ask, “Would a good parent really do this?’

She explores the conclusion that, if God is as loving a parent to us as we are to our children, then we have to rethink some of the things we believe about God, because if the actions we attribute to God are supposed to be the actions of a loving parent… what does that tell us about God? This book attempts to correct our view of God’s fatherhood to hie creations and learn something about our role as parents.

Publisher's Description

The Bible tells us that God is 'the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name' (Ephesians 3:15). If earthly families gain their nature from God's parenthood, what might our experience of family tell us about the nature of God? That is the question on which this book focuses.

Veronica Zundel roots her reflections in her journey into and through parenthood, a hard journey that led through infertility, late motherhood and then learning to parent a child with special needs. What she learned along the way - about love and sacrifice, faithfulness and forgiveness - had a profound impact on her understanding of what God feels about us, his most beloved children.
