Format: Paperback
In our culture, there are many concepts and theories, assumptions and views on how to raise children. Often, studies in the areas of Psychology and Human Development, Sociology, Medicine, and so forth, come to different conclusions, sometimes even contradictory. Studies in other cultures again have different views. Then there is the Christian sub-culture, with all its very helpful seminars, books, audio tapes, magazines, etc. But these usually draw their ideas from one or more of those same studies, and end up contradicting each other.
I don't want to discredit Christian educators, child psychologists, and so forth. They are playing an incredibly important part in helping parents understand their role; for instance, I believe that Focus on the Family, and James Dobson, THE contemporary parenting "guru", had and still has a huge influence on how families raise their children, and I am thankful for that.
If you are parents, or getting there :-), I encourage you to get your hands on some good books from Focus. However, when the theories of the books we read, Christian or not, contradict each other, then we're stuck. How can we really KNOW the best way to raise our children? The answer is quite obvious: Read the Bible!
You might argue that many things in the Bible are either old-fashioned, from another culture, and simply not applicable in our time. You're right, not everything applies to us. But everything can serve to teach us something, to educate us.
When the Apostle Paul wrote his letters, no one had a degree in Child Psychology; no one had heard about ADHD or other such "problems". But when Paul wrote, his thoughts were guided by the Holy Spirit, and He transcends time and culture.

After only a few chapters the Lord has shown me that my frustration up to this point in childrearing could have been avoided. His way is so simple and basic. We make things diffcult by coming up with our own methods. By teaching the basic principles of God's word we cannot fail in raising our children because the Lord will back us up with His power when we apply His principles. However, it starts with us as the parent and the way we live our lives as the example. How can we teach our child to be right with God if we are not following God's laws as parents. This book shows the extreme importance of putting our focus on bringing up our children God's way especially as we see our society's decline becoming more evident. Only the Lord can save the family!

This book is perfect for anyone who takes Scripture seriously, and is either thinking of having or currently has children. John MacArthur is very true to God's Word, is very open and honest, and provides wonderful direction for raising children in the love and admonition of the Lord. Some of the truths he presents are not popular, especially today, but they are very biblical.
Not a pseudo-Christian "self-help" book, this book provides a wonderful blueprint for raising children, teaching them about salvation, and encouraging them to serve the Lord all from a firmly biblical standpoint.

As a single person I rejoice in the goodness of God who has granted me the opportunity to read this book before I have a family. I can now look ahead with great confidence knowing that I have the tools to be a good parent, to raise children well, and that I have a God who is faithfull and has given me everything needed to be a "succesful Christian parent".

An excellent presentation of the unchanging truths and principles that God gave us for not only raising children but for living all of life. MacArthur doesn't rest on the human wisdom found in theories and methods that change with time, place and people. This is a wonderful teaching tool to use alongside Scripture as an individual or in a class.
