"Eighty-eight percent of children raised in evangelical homes leave church at the age of eighteen never to return." Nothing is more important than where your kids will spend eternity. As a parent, you don't want to suffer the heartache of your children rebelling against their Christian upbringing. While only God can save us and keep us, there are biblical principles you can implement to help prevent your children from falling away from faith. By countering the unscriptural belief that a child can be saved merely by "asking Jesus into his heart", seasoned evangelist Ray Comfort shares time-tested principles to help you guide your children to experience genuine salvation and avoid the pitfall of rebellion. Filled with creative ideas for family devotions, tips for safeguarding kids from harmful influences, and great suggestions for helping kids learn God's holy standard, the Ten Commandments.
Is my child saved? For Christian parents, there is no greater question in life. Dedicating himself to practicing as well as training others in evangelism, Ray Comfort prepares dads and moms to raise their kids in the Lord.
Acknowledging that genuine salvation comes through the work of God, Comfort nonetheless builds a plan for parents to biblically introduce Christ to their charges. Using the Law as a tutor--as explained in Galatians 3:24--the author leads the reader through parables for instruction, and quotes from some of the greats including Charles Spurgeon.
Through this sometimes humorous, always real, tapestry of evangelistic truths, Comfort propels apathetic and concerned parents to momentum.
The author's philosophy of using the Ten Commandments as a guide to repentance is not simply biblically sound, but tragically overlooked in our 'seeker friendly' society. How else can one realize the need for a Savior? This principle applies not just to the training of children, but is essential to anyone's saving faith. In this truth, Comfort does not pull any punches. Blended with that are suggestions, from an obvious child-at-heart, that are practical ways to communicate with kids.
How to Bring Your Children to Christ is ideal for anyone involved in the spiritual training of youth, and is such an enjoyable read that you will want to complete it in one sitting. The fun-loving personality of the author combined with the timeless truths presented are an unbeatable combination. -- Stacy Oliver, Christian Book Previews.com
