Availability: Ready to download

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.

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 "I'm 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

    5 stars are reserved for something special, but this is very good. Might be lacking in some practical matters, but touches on everything that we need to keep in mind as we seek to raise Godly children. The focus is the Bible and how the Bible says we should be raising kids. This isn't a how-to book, and in fact warns against those kinds of books, but this is a solid foundation to justify how to raise our kids Biblically.

The focus is the Bible and how the Bible says we should be raising kids. This isn't a how-to book, and in fact warns against those kinds of books, but this is a solid foundation to justify how to raise our kids Biblically. I liked it because it was a good reminder of all the things parents need to hear, that they won't hear from those other books. Who you are is more important than what you do. Kids struggle because of what parents DON'T do more than what they DO. It is our job to be parents, and it is their job to obey. We are not only right, but are commanded, to control our house and our children. There is also stark warnings against TV, school, and even "Christian" things that are not one-size fits all solutions to making sure our kids get the Gospel (Sunday School, Camps, VBS programs). These are good points that are not trying to make cookie-cutter parents, or giving advice we won't follow anyway. These are Biblical foundations on which to rest our parenting.

    You don't usually come across parenting books with sound biblical backing as this. I'm a new father and reading this book has really equipped me for what's ahead. This book not only helps in raising Godly children but speaks to the parents as well. I've really been blessed and enlightened.

    I think this may be the first official parenting book I've read. I was assigned to read it for a class, but found it to ring true with classic MacArthur flavor. In the book, he majors on his strong point: biblical exposition. He exposits the major passages referring to parenting and marriage. For those who are familiar with the Scripture passages on God's intention for the family, this book will serve as a good reminder.

    Light on "practical" advice, this book is an overview of the Scriptures pertaining to the relationship between parents and children. It's nice to read a parenting book that is truly biblically-focused and that acknowledges that Christian parents don't all have to raise their kids the same way.

    Adherents to reformed and complementarian thinking will enjoy this book. His sections on the father and mother are derived more from speculations about Scripture than serious exegesis of the text. Everything wrong with fundamentalism is captured in this book.

    My Dad gave me this book and it was very good. I have read it 2 or three times. Very practical on how God wants us to parent.

    Macarthur gives some good principles, however, he is too extreme in many areas.

    Great book that gives Biblical direction on raising children according to the word of God. This book is written with many cites from the Bible, so it will help with a Bible study as well.
