Courageous Parenting, written by Jack and Deb Graham, presents a clear outline for relationships. “God designed the task of bearing and raising children to be accomplished in the power of His Holy Spirit within the bonds of a faithful, loving, lifelong marriage.” With the skill of an engraver, Jack and Deb Graham, etch a relationship playbook of basic principles. Even champions go back to training camp every year “because one never outgrows the need of the basics.” A biblical plan for the family and putting the plan to work are the two main sections of the book.
The health of one’s relationship with spouse and children is determined by the strength of the foundation. The strongest foundation is “the unshakable foundation of Jesus Christ.” The loving leadership of a husband and father sets the “temperature” of the home. “A man has a lot to do with how warm or how chilly his marriage is and whether there is a numbing coldness or glowing warmth around the table when the family sits down together.” Setting the temperature begins with love for one’s wife. Love her with passion, purity, purpose, protection, and provision. This can only be accomplished with the help of the Holy Spirit. The sacrificial love and nurture of wife and mother also reflect the temperature of the home. Submission to God, husband, and one another is a must. A mother’s love is the heart of the home. She is to love, nurture, and teach her children as she watches them grow.
Deb Graham shares her reflections in the final chapters. She discusses the transitions of her life, beginning with the birth of their baby to watching the baby fly out of the nest. “One moment you hold that tiny little hand, and it seems in the next moment that hand is holding the hand of the person your child has chosen for life.”
The strength of Courageous Parenting is its foundation on the Word of God. It is a no-frills, by-the-book text about relationships. For any couple willing to get back to the basics, it can serve as a resource for building a rock solid marriage and home. Non-Christians and single parents may find it a difficult book to read.
The title is somewhat misleading. Expecting to find a book about parenting and related issues, the reader is first given an invitation to salvation and then a session in marriage counseling. The material is good, but totally unexpected. The reader will wait several pages before parenting is discussed. The Grahams, however, are sincere in their desire to help couples become courageous parents. Drawing upon their marriage and ministry experiences of more than thirty years they offer, “To do everything we can to help.” – Richard A. Borgman, Christian Book

    This book is adequate for someone needing a reminder of Christian parenting. Also, it is helpful for someone who has grown up away from the Christian church needing a basic orientation to parenting with Christian guidelines.

    It is a very broad work that deals very little with specific advice.

    there are lots of better works out there, but at the same time, it is not a waste of time or money either.

    This was a good review book for me. The Grahams point out many biblical and very important topics with parenting. I bought this book in my search to find meaning and fulfillment in my parenting didn't really hit those topics, but gave me some good things to think about. If I were a new Christian or not raised by Christian parents,this book would have spoke much louder to me rather than be a review.
