Living faithfully isn't about attending church. Being Christian is about living in right, just relationships with other people and the rest of creation. How can Christian parents avoid being overcome with the pressure to be a perfect parent and make a difference in the world? Parenting for a Better World shows there are all sorts of ways we can make a real difference from within our own homes.

Even busy parents can work with their families for global justice. Without pressing you to do it all, this book offers spiritual resources for reflecting on the relationship between your faith, your calling for justice, and your commitment to parenting. Find encouragement from fellow parents who weave together stories of caregiving, activism, and scripture that affirm your sense of calling. Plus, it offers practical strategies to help committed (and over-committed) people integrate caregiving and justice work into their daily lives.

Susanna Snyder is Academic Dean and Lecturer in Theology and Ethics at Ripon College Cuddesdon, UK. As well as being mum to a four-year daughter and seven-year old son, she is an Anglican priest and has written numerous essays and books on social justice, refugees, migration and theology.

Dr. Ellen Ott Marshall is the Professor of Christian Ethics and Conflict Transformation at Candler School of Theology and in the Graduate Division of Religion at Emory University. She focuses on contemporary Christian ethics, with particular attention to violence, peacebuilding, conflict transformation, gender and moral agency. She has authored three books, including An Introduction to Christian Ethics: Conflict, Faith, and Human Life (Westminster John Knox Press, 2018). Parenting for a Better World is her third edited volume.
