The Christian Heart of Marriage and Morality…

… in a world that calls it heartless.

The Christian understanding of marriage and morality has never seen such pressure before. Christians are “intolerant,” “homophobic,” “on the wrong side of history,” “against equality,” and to sum it all up, “haters.”

… or so the world is saying.

You know better.

You know God created humans to thrive best under his instructions for marriage and morality.

You know God’s ways are good: but do your children? 

Teens and pre-teens are getting hammered with the world’s anti-Christian message. And they’re confused. They get one point of view from school, friends, and the media, and another view at church and at home. How do they navigate the differences?

Critical Conversations Book Cover

Your parent-friendly guide to raising kids who will stand strong in the faith — no matter what the world may tell them


Tom Gilson is one writer whose insights I never miss—and this may just be his most significant work ever.”
—Alex McFarland, author, speaker, and director for Christian Worldview and Apologetics, North Greenville University


Your kids’ spiritual lives are under attack.

It isn’t just their morality and marriages that are in danger — it’s their eternal spiritual future.

For they are under attack. It comes at them through a constant, sustained barrage of messages telling them God’s word is immoral, churches are hateful, and you, the parent, are mixed up at best — but probably homophobic and intolerant.

Doubt me? Read the 1987 gay-activist strategy paper, The Overhauling of Straight America. which plans to portray pastors as hateful “beady-eyed” pulpit-pounders, Christians as intolerant victimizers, and gays and lesbians as upstanding innocent victims. Look at society today: who’s being portrayed as the victimizers and the victims?

They’ve had a strategy. (Doubt me? Steel your courage, then read this.) It’s been working. And it’s aimed straight at your children.

You can protect your kids — while strengthening your relationship with them!

Critical Conversations is the defense you need. It clears away the confusion, overcomes the awkwardness, and explains in practical, parent-friendly terms how to start the conversations, how to deflect the deceit that’s aimed at your children, and how to explain the truth — while also building your relationship with your teen.

The world is hammering home a message that Christianity is hateful and wrong. Your teen’s spiritual future is at stake. Critical Conversations can make the critical difference.
