SNEAK PEAK #1: "Raising Children God's Way," by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

COMING THIS JULY FROM BANNER!

Raising Children God's Way
by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
ISBN-13: 978-0-85151-9586 \ 96 pages
Paperback \ $11.00 (U.S. Currency)

I am especially excited about this upcoming release! I mentioned it to Paul Tripp just the other night while we were in Memphis together, given all of the work that he and his brother Ted have done in this area ("Shepherding Your Child's Heart," and "Age of Opportunity"). Perhaps the best "sneak peek" I can give you is simply to let you read the book's back cover for yourself:
"When the light of the gospel enters the soul it brings with it a supernatural power that radically transforms the whole of life. This change is perhaps no more clearly seen than in the relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children. Our age has witnessed an almost total collapse of the family unit, and in many places the majority of children are now being raised in ‘broken homes’. Our society presents Christian parents and children with a unique opportunity of bearing witness to God’s love by just being different. Few things are more powerful than a Christian family in which the true relationship between parents and children is clearly seen. This may be one of the ways in which God will bringing many to a knowledge of the truth." Taken from a series of sermons preached by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, I seriously hope that this both provides solid, biblical insight for today's parents, but also introduces many young adults to explore the life and faith of this man of God. I can't wait to get my own hands on this soon-to-be-released book from Banner of Truth.
Stay tuned; there are about five more "sneak peeks" yet to come. Grace & Peace. Steve (sitting in the Memphis Airport, headed HOME!)

Steve, this sounds awesome. Having recently joined the ranks of parents I am constantly on the lookout for good books like this. Thanks for the heads up.

How recently, Matt?

Matthew Cochrane said...

My son James will be 11 months Monday. He is the first of what will hopefully be many. Thanks for asking Steve. I'm rereading Dobson's Bringing Up Boys now but am always on the lookout for good books in this genre/category. Thanks for the tip.

Have you come across Dr. Al Mohler's booklet, "What Makes a Boy, a Man?" and JC Ryle's, "Thoughts for Young Men?" Just a couple of suggestions. Good hearing from you, Matthew.

JC Ryle is always good to read, regardless of your age. I'm not a young boy anymore, but I review Thoughts for Young Men time to time. It's accessible and powerful.

Matthew Cochrane said...

JC Ryle is one of my favorite authors of all time. I will have to check out that book sometime. Thanks for the suggestions.

The article I mentioned, "Thoughts for Young Men," has been published by itself by another publisher (and the honest truth is that I can't recall who). But it's also part of a collection of sermons and lectures by JC Ryle, published by Banner, titled, "The Upper Room." And since it is NOT the only good article in that book, why sacrifice the rest for just the one. Go for "The Upper Room" (my humble, and very biased opinion).

Thoughts for Young Men can be read online.

Of course! Thanks, JC.
