Publisher's Summary

Many parents today are searching for the secret to successful parenting. In Parenting by God's Promises, Dr. Joel R. Beeke asserts that there is no secret. When it comes to giving children what they need most - new hearts that trust in Christ for forgiveness of sins - parents are helpless.

When children come to faith, it is due to the grace of God. But while parents are helpless, they are not hopeless, for God has promised in his word to provide all needful things for his people and to bless them and their families. With faith in these grand promises, parents may raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord with confidence that God will work savingly in their lives.

Parenting by God's Promises is a different kind of parenting manual, one that puts parental responsibilities in their proper perspective and guides mothers and fathers not to lean on their own abilities but to trust more fully in the God who knits children together in the first place.

Return to family worship

Got this book in anticipation of the arrival of our daughter. Dr. Beeke takes a welcome Puritan stance on raising a family, emphasizing the importance of bringing kids up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord and family worship.
He provides much helpful advice that emphasizes the family's roles in worship and the importance of the family alter. He speaks at some length on how to discipline in a God-focused manner which was informative as my wife and I had not discussed discipline at any length.
