Introducing Dr. Jim Dempsey

Author Interview with Dr. Jim Dempsey

I have the privilege of working on the Family Ministry Consultation Team with Dr Jim Dempsey. It's been a pleasure to get to know Jim and Gail over the past few years. He's also becoming one of our more sought after presenters at the National Center for Biblical Parenting. I believe that his new book addresses a very important issue in the area of parenting. Awareness of deception allows us to plan for change. Continue on and get to know Jim better. 

Jim Dempsey

Family Pastor and Children’s Minister in Austin, Texas. Author of Parenting UnChained-Overcoming the Ten Deceptions that Shackle Christian Parents. I’m passionate about helping Christian parents create a “Deuteronomy 6″ culture in their homes.
You’re an author. Can you tell us about your book?
The book’s title, Parenting Unchained, reflects the freedom that parents can experience IF they understand the way Satan tries to deceive them. You can’t avoid the pitfalls you don’t see!
What was the motivation for writing the book?Jim
I felt that the Bible has much more to say about parenting than the few verses that speak specifically to parents. I saw in God’s interaction with the nation of Israel, and in Jesus’ interaction with the disciples, many great lessons on how to parent, so those lessons are explained. But most of all, I want Christian parents to avoid the parenting mistakes I made so that Christ becomes real to the next generation.

You are self published. What has that been like?
I was blessed to be able to publish under the banner of the National Center for Biblical Parenting, so in some ways the process was similar to traditional publishing. Working with them gave me the ability to put their logo on the spine, which brings credibility. They provided the cover artist and interior designer, plus advice on formatting. Dr. Scott Turansky of the NCBP provided the ‘tough love’ editing I needed to improve the book. I’m very grateful to him and proud to be associated with the NCBP.
What will we learn as we read your book?
Because churches need to involve and train parents, I try to promote close interaction between parents and children’s ministry workers. Participants will learn essential attitudes and actions kidmin workers must cultivate in order to involve parents. You have to make these connections and build relationship before you can train them.
Who should read the book and why?
Anyone involved in children’s ministry, including senior pastors, children’s ministers and teachers will benefit. Parents are the key to developing the next generation of spiritual champions, so we need to connect with parents and form partnerships with them. A great way to start is to get them involved in the ministry to children at church.
Where can we find your book?
On Amazon.
You can also purchase Parenting Unchained at the NCBP web store.
