Martyn Lloyd-Jones on Parenting

According to Steve Burlew, the Banner of Truth Trust is releasing a new book on parenting from the late Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. Of course I am very excited for this book since Dr. Lloyd-Jones is one of my favorites. Lloyd-Jones has influenced my theology and ministry in many ways. I hope that this book influences the way that grace can be at the center of our parenting.

Maybe my friend, Steve Burlew, from the Banner, will send me an advanced copy for review (I hope so)!

"When the light of the gospel enters the soul it brings with it a supernatural power that radically transforms the whole of life. This change is perhaps no more clearly seen than in the relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children. Our age has witnessed an almost total collapse of the family unit, and in many places the majority of children are now being raised in ‘broken homes’. Our society presents Christian parents and children with a unique opportunity of bearing witness to God’s love by just being different. Few things are more powerful than a Christian family in which the true relationship between parents and children is clearly seen. This may be one of the ways in which God will bringing many to a knowledge of the truth."

Oh wow! I would be all over that. I just discovered M L-J a while back through his book Preaching & Preachers. More recently I received Iain Murray's two volume biography of Dr. Lloyd-Jones for my birthday. I am on the second volume now, and I must say that it is quite refreshing to read. If I could afford it, I would give a set to all of my friends.

Thanks for the heads up on this one. I will keep my eye open for it.

Nate! Now why would I do a crazy thing like that??? It will list at $11.00 and with the 25% Web discount at www.banneroftruth.org, that brings it to just $6.60. That's hardly more than an ice cream from Brusters!
How are you doing, brother? Again, really good meeting you at the Ministers' Conference last year. Stay in touch.
