Item Description...
More than ever, Christians need to know what the Bible actually teaches about parenting, and put it into practice. In What the Bible Says About Parenting, pastor/teacher John MacArthure presents time-proven principles of biblical parenting clearly and carefully to help parents make sense of their duties before God and to bring up their children in the ways of the Lord. In addition to this new trade paper edition (previously titled Successful Christian Parenting), there is also a resource kit and two workbooks available to help Christian parents instruct their children in a godly manner.

Publishers Description

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

"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

THE BEST. Excellent. I highly recommend.
As with all of Dr. John Macarthur's works, this is
packed with life changing Biblical TRUTHS, wisdom and sound doctrine.

Psychology is Good, Bible is Better  Feb 26, 2004
In our culture, there are many concepts and theories, assumptions and views on how to raise children. Often, studies in the areas of Psychology and Human Development, Sociology, Medicine, and so forth, come to different conclusions, sometimes even contradictory. Studies in other cultures again have different views. Then there is the Christian sub-culture, with all its very helpful seminars, books, audio tapes, magazines, etc. But these usually draw their ideas from one or more of those same studies, and end up contradicting each other.

I don't want to discredit Christian educators, child psychologists, and so forth. They are playing an incredibly important part in helping parents understand their role; for instance, I believe that Focus on the Family, and James Dobson, THE contemporary parenting "guru", had and still has a huge influence on how families raise their children, and I am thankful for that.

If you are parents, or getting there :-), I encourage you to get your hands on some good books from Focus. However, when the theories of the books we read, Christian or not, contradict each other, then we're stuck. How can we really KNOW the best way to raise our children? The answer is quite obvious: Read the Bible!

You might argue that many things in the Bible are either old-fashioned, from another culture, and simply not applicable in our time. You're right, not everything applies to us. But everything can serve to teach us something, to educate us.

When the Apostle Paul wrote his letters, no one had a degree in Child Psychology; no one had heard about ADHD or other such "problems". But when Paul wrote, his thoughts were guided by the Holy Spirit, and He transcends time and culture. We still have to use our brains :-) when we read Scripture, to find out what things meant to the original writers and readers, and what it means for us today. But, if you want to know how to raise your children, then DO read the Bible, MORE than any other book.
John MacArthur has done a study on parenting, from the Bible. This book is the result of this study.

If you want to get the BASICS of parenting right, I strongly encourage you to get a copy. It is filled with quotes from Scripture and excellent advice. If, after reading it, you think it was not worth your time or money, then read it again, you must have missed something! This book is not written to give you the latest tips and ideas on parenting, but to give you a foundation on which to build your family and home.

Put it this way: if I were teaching Parenting 101 at a Bible College, this would be the required textbook (for Parenting 201, I'd require many different ones, most of them probably from Focus on the Family).

Please remember: I believe MacArthur does a good job explaining the Scriptures, focusing on what God wants us to know and do in our families. However, don't read the book like you read the Bible. John MacArthur is not God :-) You might find that some of his interpretations and views clash with yours. That's ok. You might be right. You might not be. For instance, he supports spanking (based on Scripture; Proverbs 13:24). I agree with that, but I'm not saying that spanking is a must. Regardless of your view on different things and issues, read this book with an open mind and see how God might use this tool to challenge and equip you to be(come) better parents.

Very Very Good Book  Jan 12, 2004
This book is perfect for anyone who takes Scripture seriously, and is either thinking of having or currently has children. John MacArthur is very true to God's Word, is very open and honest, and provides wonderful direction for raising children in the love and admonition of the Lord. Some of the truths he presents are not popular, especially today, but they are very biblical.

Not a pseudo-Christian "self-help" book, this book provides a wonderful blueprint for raising children, teaching them about salvation, and encouraging them to serve the Lord all from a firmly biblical standpoint.

Excellent  Jun 17, 2003
This is an excellent book full of practical and biblical instruction on parenting. As are most of MacArthur's books, Successful Christian Parenting is full of biblical exposition. MacArthur focuses on general principles of parenting, rather than getting entangled in specific lists of dos and donts. He rightly understands parenting to be a simple, yet weighty task: that of teaching our children to know God, obey His Word, and trust in Christ. This is a very gospel centered book, with clear direction on how to share the gospel with children. There is a strong emphasis on instilling into our children biblical wisdom for life. I also like MacArthur's balanced teaching on child discipline. The final two chapters focus on the father's and mother's roles, and beautifully unfold God's pattern for marriage which is based on mutual submission and love. This book is not encumbered with psychology or legalism, which makes it quite refreshing. MacArthur's comments on psychological disorders, referenced in another review, comprise a very small portion of this book. While I am not trained in medicine or psychology, my own exposure to psychology in college left me thinking that it was a far less exact science than psychologists want to let on. I don't think MacArthur is far off the mark.
Sickening, unchristian and altogether barbaric  Aug 5, 2002
It greatly disturbs me that there are modern Christians who still believe that Serious and Severe Brain disorders such as bipolar disorder are the result of sin. John MacArther attempts to drag christians back into the dark ages where demons, spells, and witchcraft exists. Considering that there is more scientific support for Brain disorders than there is for A.I.D.S. I wonder where he gets off by saying that there is no biological support for Bipolar Disorder. P.E.T. scans now reconfirm to the average person what Doctors have believed for years; Bipolar Disorder is the result of a Chemical imbalance involving at least three Nurotransmitters. Considering that John MacArthur has ZERO experience in the medicine field, I find it odd that he claims to know more than doctors who have trained all of their life. I think that it is a shame that Christians like John have found sadistic pleasure in tormenting the seriously ill. "What you do unto the least of my servants you do even unto me"----Jesus Christ.
