A little “Hebrew” thought for “Greek minded” Americans. This book is a comprehensive tool to help parents develop a positive rite of passage strategy for their children. It is based on the Jewish concept of a bar mitzvah and encourages and coaches parents in the Christian home on how they can create a spiritually significant coming of age event in the life of their son or daughter.
The story of Jesus at 12 years of age in the Bible begins with the phrase, "His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover." To put it simply, they did something spiritually significant for their family on a regular basis. Doing something is better than doing nothing. Preteens desperately need ritual and tradition that is based in deep relational spiritual truth. This book will show you how to create a something that will stick with them for the rest of their life.
