Why Did Joel Beeke Write “Parenting by God’s Promises”?

from Jan 17, 2012 Category: Reformation Trust

In this newly released trailer for Parenting by God’s Promises, Joel Beeke explains why he wrote this book on parenting.

Parents are unable to give their children what they need most—new hearts that trust in Christ for forgiveness of sins. All belief is a work of God alone. But parents must not “hinder” their children from coming to Christ, as Jesus’ disciples sought to hinder mothers and fathers from bringing small children to Him (Mark 10:13–16). On the contrary, they must do everything in their power to “bring” their children to the Savior, which means raising their sons and daughters in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Eph. 6:4).
