“Age of Opportunity is a marvel. It brims with fresh, rich, honest truth. Tripp will get you looking in the mirror before you go looking at your teen. He’ll get you seeking—and finding—your own Father’s help.” ~David Powlison
“Opens the door to hope for parents and teens alike by showing us how God can transform the hearts of whole families. . . . You won’t be able to put this book down.” ~Tremper Longman III

“Provides a superb road map for raising teenage children . . . [and] experiencing with them the challenges, victories, and joys of our journey to maturity in Christ.” ~Ken Sande
