Editorial Reviews

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 Spring’s '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.

About the Author

Gardiner Spring (1785-1873) graduated from Yale in 1805, studied law, and became a lawyer in 1808. Shortly after beginning his career he heard a sermon on the preaching of the gospel and determined to pursue the ministry. He became Pastor of Brick Presbyterian Church in New York City in 1810, where he ministered for 63 years.

Dr. Tedd Tripp is pastor of Grace Fellowship Church in Hazleton, Pennsylvania and author of 'Shepherding a Child's Heart'.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Pastor, author and parent Tedd Tripp, unassuming possessor of a none-too-shabby Doctorate of Ministry from Westminster Theological Seminary, has labored resolutely to bring God's word to bear on parenting for the benefit of God's people and God's people's children. Tripp is best known as the author of the biblical parenting manual Shepherding a Child's Heart, and plays a major role in the publishing ministry of Shepherd Press. He has endured his own share of flak from both the secular sphere and a significant cross-section of the Christian world. Critics describe his methods as overly scripted and excessively severe. One need only consult the copious Amazon customer reviews (currently numbering 212) of Shepherding to appreciate the controversy Tripp has generated with his flagship parenting book. Whereas Shepherding is a comprehensive exposition of the means (speaking to the child's heart) and ends (long life, salvation, eternal life) that God has ordained for child-raising, Hints for Parents operates as a follow-up for parents who have practiced Tripp's shepherding approach, but whose purpose and practice have waned along the way. The tone of the book evokes a picture of the author sitting across the table from the parent he is addressing, earnestly urging that parent to embrace and practice biblical principles of child raising.

The eighty pages of this diminutive hardcover (obviously modeled after Multnomah's successful Life Change series) include parental teaching from no less than three godly pastors: a live one and two departed. But their teaching is remarkably congruent.

Very good direction. Catechism is the good way to instruct. The instructor parent must know and do the Will and Word of God to be an effectual influence upon the child. This follows the Deuteronomy 6 instruction of scripture.

I wish I could convey how much I love this book, but words will not suffice. I will read it again and recommend to everyone! It is convicting, encouraging, challenging, and very easy to read with a simple format.
