What the Bible Says about Parenting: Biblical Principles for Raising Godly Children by John F. MacArthur Jr.More than ever, Christians need to know what the Bible actually teaches about parenting, and put it into practice.
Parents today seek answers from child experts, self-help books, or equally confused friends. But even the experts portray modern-day childbearing as a minefield strewn with psychological dangers and emotional hazards.
What the Bible Says About Parenting is not a book on child psychology, nor is it proposing a new parenting method. It is simply presenting the principles of biblical parenting with as much clarity as possible. John MacArthur, a leading expert on the Bible and an experienced pastor, teacher, father, and grandfather goes into depth on such vital biblical parenting subjects as these:
Four helpful principles of communication
Effective methods to discipline wisely and effectively, with positive results
Simple principles for identifying, changing, and developing habits in your children
Im convinced that if Christian parents understand and apply the simple principles Scripture sets forth, they can rise above the trends of secular society and bring up their children in a way that honors Christ, in any culture and under any circumstances. ?John MacArthur
