Being a great Christian parent is impossible.
At least that's what you might conclude if you listen to some experts. Many parents and parents-to-be have been intimidated into thinking they can't possibly lead, love, and nurture their children in a way that pleases God—at least not without lengthy training seminars, strict methods, and complex programs.
Yet effective, godly parenting is not only possible, but it's well within reach of anyone willing to understand and apply what God's Word says on the subject. God's Word is where John MacArthur takes you in his book, What the Bible Says About Parenting. This book offers a timely, in-depth survey of trends affecting today's Christian homes and provides a well-organized, biblical model that mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, and children can follow for raising a family.
