Over a million homes across North America and beyond have been deeply impacted by Dr. John Trent's powerful message of the "blessing". From the platform of numerous Promise Keepers stadium events to his nationwide seminars to his best-selling book on the subject (co-authored with Gary Smalley), John's original work on this powerful Old Testament concept has become a Christian parenting classic.
Now, after more than a decade of research, teaching, speaking and writing on the subject, Dr. Trent brings a new message of hope, encouragement and insight straight from the pages of Scripture. Going back to the Old Testament and forward to the New, he shows there are two choices every person and parent makes: One choice is to "bless", the other is to "curse". That daily choice to bless or curse isn't inconsequential -- it's enormously important. In fact, it's a choice that can add either life and light to our lives and others' -- or darkness and destruction.
Echoing the words of Scripture, Dr. Trent points out that this daily choice is one God Himself has set before us: "I call heaven and earth to witness before you today; behold, I lay before you life and death, the blessing and the curse".
Like two sides of the coin, Dr. Trent shows how understanding this concept of blessing others can come only when confronting its opposite of cursing. Through gripping stories and careful explanation of Scriptures, he shows how choosing light over darkness, life over death, blessing over cursing can change your life -- and your family's life -- forever.
