5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Explanation of Proverbs 22:6 - "Train up a child...", September 26, 2011
This review is from: God's Wisdom in Proverbs (Hardcover)
The explanation of Proverbs 22:6 in your appendix is awesomeness on steroids. The writing is so clear, that half way through the chapter I figured out where the interpretation was going.

One ALWAYS hears the traditional or majority view as promoted by the King James translation. And that is just so problematic. But I heard the #2 and #3 views in my early 20's growing up in the late `80s, and never was satisfied for some of the reasons you put forth in your dissent of those views: They just didn't/couldn't deal with all the phrases in the verse in an intellectually satisfying way. Much less the resulting, "now what do I do?" And because of that, I have literally nixed that verse from my repertoire of child-rearing scripture. That is the sad condition of my mind regarding the inability of mine to figure that verse out. But NO MORE! I have a such a renewed sense of understanding it borders on triumphalism. I hope your explanation works its way to the top of the heap, and soon. Your concluding thought about being "brought back to the doorstep of the Majority View" has a really kind and nice ring to it. I hope traditionalists will give your explanation a fair reading.
