Standing on the Promises:
A Handbook on Biblical Childrearing

As parents, our greatest calling is the raising of our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. God has designed each family to be a culture--with a language, customs, traditions, and countless unspoken assumptions. The culture of the family intimately shapes the children who grow up in it. It is the duty of parents to ensure that the shaping takes place according to biblical wisdom.

Through the Messiah, God promised blessing to His people, "their children, and their children's children forever." The norm for faithful members of the covenant is that their children will follow them in their faithfulness. Unless we reestablish faithful Christian culture in countless homes, we will never reestablish it anywhere. Standing on the Promises brings clarity, providing parents with an insightful handbook on biblical childrearing, that avoids another paint-by-numbers method for parenting.

Comments: This is the best book on parenting that I've read. Wilson builds his foundation from the Bible and explains the promises that obedient parents are given in the Biblepromises that God is faithful to keep. He then applies the foundation to practical wisdom in how to discipline and educate our children. If you're looking for a book on parentingthis is the place to start.

"The Sweetness of Covenantal Childrearing"

JD Lollar on 10/19/2011 1:36:47 PM

Comments: Already convinced of paedobaptism, this book made me fall in love with God's design, and see the importance of truly trusting in the promises. A much needed challenge to parents to recognize their duties and responsibilities, and a 180deg reversal of what most parents presume about their children. To the praise of the glory of His grace, and for the Kingdom!

"Standing on The Promises"

Elizabeth Ehresman on 4/21/2011 6:46:48 PM

Comments: I felt that this book implied that if your children are not following God it is because of parenting mistakes, and that homeschooling is the only Biblical choice for education. Both of which I disagree with. However, this book does a great job of casting the vision for parents to take their responsibility to train their children seriously - and to do so with diligence. One of my favorite humorous quote is that babies are "cute little bundles of unfocused sin."
