Parenting By God's Promises

Parenting By God’s Promises

BY: Joel R. Beeke

From the back cover: Many parents today are searching for the “secret” to successful parenting. In Parenting by God’s Promises: How to Raise Children in the Covenant of Grace, Dr. Joel R. Beeke presents the difficult truth: 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 only by the grace of God. But while parents are helpless, they are not hopeless, for God has promised to provide all that His people need and to bless them and their families. Trusting in these grand promises, parents may raise their children in “the nurture and admonition of the Lord” with confidence that He will bring them to faith. This book is a different kind of parenting manual, one that puts parental responsibilities in proper perspective and guides mothers and fathers to lean not on their abilities but to trust more fully in the God who knits children together in the first place.
