OUTSIDE SOURCE BOOK REVIEW: "Raising Children God's Way" by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

BOOK REVIEWED: "Raising Children God's Way," by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
REVIEWER: Tyler Sultze at "Heart of Ezra" blog
THE REVIEW (his words, not mine): "With the Iowa caucuses being held today, it is easy to hear many messages which promote change to our society. Every presidential hopeful has an answer to what they would do in order to change society. While they say much about taxes, health care, the war on terror, international experience, and education, I have not heard one talk about parenting. What part do parents play in the fabric of society? Would things be different in the word if parents parented differently than they currently do?
Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones answers these questions and more in Raising Children God’s Way. These five sermons from Ephesians 6:1-4 compiled by Banner of Truth Trust give great insight into how parents are to raise children for the kingdom of God. Even though these sermons were given decades ago, they still are accurate with the trends of parenting today. It goes to show that God’s Word is timeless. Dr. Lloyd-Jones has given biblical precision concerning what the Lord requires from parents. When one picks this book up they will immediately see the passion and concern he has for the family.
Only 85 pages, Raising Children God’s Way is a short read, but it must be thoroughly digested. It is packed with biblical truth applied accurately to the fallen conditions of man. Those parents who are seeking to raise children who glorify God will be challenged and convicted by this book. The church thirsts for books like this, which brings the light of the Word of God to shine on the family. God has designed the family, instituted the family, and been an example to the family. We can no longer ignore the problems of parenting or seek to remedy them with anything other than the Bible.
Read a few excerpts from the book:
I believe that Christian parents and children, Christian families, have a unique opportunity of witnessing to the world at this present time by just being different. We can be true evangelists by showing this discipline, this law and order, this true relationship between parents and children. We may be the means under God’s hand of bringing many to a knowledge of the truth. Let us therefore think of it in that way.
Whether we like it or not, a breakdown in home-life will eventually lead to a breakdown everywhere.
But the tragedy of today, with its superficial thinking, is to assume that the opposite of wrong discipline is no discipline at all.
There is no more important influence in the life of a child than the influence of the home. The home is the fundamental unit of society, and children are born into a home, into a family. There you have the circle that is to be the chief influence in their lives. There is no question about that. It is the biblical teaching everywhere; and it is always in so-called civilizations were ideas concerning the home begin to deteriorate that society ultimately disintegrates.
Raising Children God’s Way is a must read for any parent. It will help shape one’s thinking around the truth of God and convince him or her of the importance of the necessity of the family. God’s design must not be forsaken and those of God’s church must uphold it for the glory of God and the testimony of Christ. Raising Children God’s Way will make your family look different than the rest of the world, but think of the opportunity it opens for the proclamation of the gospel. May the church encourage fathers and mothers to faithfully uphold the biblical standards of child rearing."
