Rob Parsons: Storytelling, prodigals and Care for the Family

October 11, 2019

As his long-running Premier Christianity column draws to a close, Rob Parsons chats to editor Sam Hailes about his ministry with Care for the Family, the disruptive nature of technology and the power of vulnerability. The former lawyer has sold thousands of books, including The Sixty Minute Father and The Money Secret, and is known as an expert on family issues, but he’s as friendly, relatable and down to earth as he has ever been. In this interview the 71 year old reflects on life growing up in rural Wales, the importance of honesty and vulnerability, why he often feels like a “rubbish Christians” and what the future holds for him.
