From the Publisher
The eternal truths of the Bible never change. God does not change, but cultural standards and expectations change with each generation. One of the benefits of reading books by saints from the past is that they surprise us by bringing a whole different set of cultural expectations and standards to their exposition of the unchanging truths of Scripture. We are thankful that we have such a trove of works by fellow believers from long ago, but sometimes we get bogged down in the strange manner and expression of old books. The format of Gardiner Springs 'Hints for Parents' is easily accessible and will maximize the benefit of wisdom from men who knew and walked with God hundreds of years ago.
