The third edition of this proven book clearly articulates the Gospel and reinforces for the reader that as baptized children of God, we are showered in His grace and love. As such, babysitting is a way to show that love to others. And in those times when babysitting becomes a challenge or when mistakes are made, the reader is assured that his/her actions, and those of his/her charge, are forgiven. The Christian Babysitter's Handbook emphasizes that God, our perfect Parent, is present in all aspects of the reader's life and reminds readers of the forgiveness and hope we have through Christ for the times we fail and the opportunities we have to model that forgiveness to others.
