Hoffman provides support to Christian parents of children that departed from faith


... Proverbs 22:6 is not a promise that children will not depart from the faith ...

Within the pages of D.D. Hoffman’s new book, Proverbs 22:6 - A Parent’s Promise?, ($15.99, paperback, 9781498447218; $7.99, e-book, 9781498447225) readers will discover a refreshing and engaging look at Proverbs 22:6 – a scripture verse that is often taken out of context in the church today – that leads to parental guilt and shame. It balances the insights of good hermeneutics and Bible study with the heart of a Christian father. Parents who are struggling with children departing from the training they have received will be blessed by this raw investigation of Proverbs 22:6.

“My book clearly makes the argument, from Scripture itself, using sound biblical interpretation principles, that Proverbs 22:6 is not a promise that children will not depart from the faith and it does it in a very engaging and captivating manner that keeps the readers attention,” states the author. “The book brings hope and healing to Christian parents whose lives and family have been significantly damaged, and even shattered, due to the pain of their child not following the Lord and the guilt that they, the parents carry due to it.”

D.D. Hoffman holds Master of Divinity from Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California. For 25 years he has worked with young adults from the ages of 16 to 27 in a residential job-training program where he currently holds the position of Vice President. Church planting has played a significant part of his life. The opinions and ideas expressed in his book were derived from Scripture. Hoffman allowed Scripture to speak for itself on this subject. He has been exposed to many vibrant Christian parents whose children departed from the teaching they received. He also has personal experience as a parent going through this situation.
