Author Bio

Publisher Summary

This book is a compelling read because it gives practical advice and very biblical hope to parents of children of all ages. Most parenting books outright, or indirectly, promise a good outcome if you only follow their suggestions. The Faithful Parent gives many practical biblically-based suggestions and covers all major issues but focuses on the Christian parent's faithfulness to glorify God - whether their children do, or not. It's an authoritative parenting book that looks at the objectives of parenting at each life stage and includes practical 'troubleshooting' when things don’t go to plan.

Author Bios

Martha Peace is a biblical counselor and conference speaker, as well as the best-selling author of The Excellent Wife.

Stuart Scott is a professor of Biblical Counseling at Southern Seminary and the author of The Exemplary Husband. He is a board member of the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors.

Exactly what its title indicates, The Faithful Parent shows those of us who long to raise our children by biblical standards how to do it. No whistles, fancy gimmicks, up-to-the minute slang, or wild ideas, this book contains only solidly Scripture-based perspectives which make good sense and work admirably. Knowing that to be able to truly help your children you must begin with yourself, the authors start by looking at parental needs and then at what is meant by bringing up children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, with a strong emphasis on helping your child develop his own biblical mindset and heart-set. Included in this is a discussion about your child’s salvation and sanctification. Having given you a basis for the ongoing discussion, the authors go on to the bulk of this book, Christian insights and advice for the various developmental phases: infant, toddler, preschooler, school-age, and adolescence. Part 3 further facilitates Christian parenting. It considers special cases such as single parenting, divorced parents and blended families, and one parent not a Christian. It also gives insight into the heart-break of a Christ-rejecting child, providing a month of significant devotions for the parents of this type of child. Several helpful appendices worthily close The Faithful Parent, including: faithfully presenting the gospel in all you do; direct dealing with sin; and, parents learning to cope with their own wrong thinking so as to pass this ability on to your children.

A mother, grandmother, R.N., Bible teacher, women's counselor, and author, Martha Peace brings to this book a great deal of experience, years of learning to live the Christian life, and the ability to simply state the important truths about which she is writing. Long-time pastor, seminary professor of biblical counseling, and author of family-related books and booklets, Stuart Scott adds his experience, deep insights from the Lord he loves, and a penchant for saying exactly what his audience needs to hear. All parents, whether experienced or just beginning, will find much help and encouragement in this book. Children do come with an instruction manual. That manual is the Bible. The Faithful Parent gathers all that biblical information together so that we can access it now by reading it from cover to cover, and later as we return to it for immediate help on particular problems. – Donna Eggett,

Editorial Reviews

"The Faithful Parent provides the comprehensive help that parents need. Martha Peace and Stuart Scott have done for parenting what their earlier books did for the roles of a husband and a wife. . . . The book you are holding is an outstanding resource. The authors are seasoned Christians who are safe spiritual guides. They are full of the hope and grace of the gospel. They are wise in their understanding of the nature of the Christian life. They are insightful in their understanding of the needs of children and the difficulties of being a faithful parent. They are mature in their application of the Bible and its message to the challenges of raising children. This will be a timeless resource for faithful parents."
"On numerous occasions, I have been asked to recommend a biblically-based book that would provide guidelines for parenting during the different phases of a child’s life. When that request has come, I could think of a number of books that give solid biblical counsel on general biblical principles for parenting in every period of a child’s life. However, I could not think of one biblically based book that does as thoroughly what Stuart and Martha have done in The Faithful Parent. They cover the "water front" of biblical parenting from infancy to adolescence and then even deal with some special cases such as single parenting, blended family situations, being a grandparent, and how to handle those times when things don’t go as planned. Now, with the publication of The Faithful Parent, when someone asks me to recommend a biblically-based book that provides practical guidelines for parenting in the different phases of a child’s life, I am glad that I can, and do, wholeheartedly recommend this book as an answer to their quest and question. Thank you Stuart and Martha for providing a parenting book that is biblical, practical and specific.
"This is not your average parenting book - it will give younger and older parents hope and help in understanding biblical principles and how to apply them to their individual parenting situations. This book can also be especially encouraging to parents whose adult children have strayed from the faith they once embraced. It is a call to remain faithful to God’s Word in the form of daily applications which can help any believing parent to continue to be a godly influence in the lives of their wayward children. We highly recommend “The Faithful Parent” to all, and especially to those who do not yet have children, as they will be greatly impacted in learning to raise children for the glory of God.
“I am so pleased to recommend your reading of this wonderful book, The Faithful Parent. As parents of eight children, my wife and I greatly value such helpful, practical books which especially seek to set our parenting task squarely within the context of the Christian gospel. I so appreciate the authors’ desire to start (and end through an expanded appendix) the book with a strong effort to frame their entire parental approach around the truth of Jesus’ death and resurrection for sinners like us and our children. Frankly, without a clear and compelling spiritual focus for parents within the milieu of shattered, broken lives like ours and our children’s, which are then sovereignly and graciously brought to Christ and His truth, our parenting can quickly become nothing more than mere religious sloganeering and token moralism. Further, this kind of popular mechanical approach even to so-called “Christian parenting” these days actually loses sight of the goal for all truly Christian parenting that God would be glorified in all things and that we as parents would strive to discipline and instruct our kids “in the Lord.” This God-centered, Christ-exalting, Scripture-based teaching on parenting is what excites me about The Faithful Parent. Read this excellent book with an anticipated joy and believe me, you won’t be disappointed!”
Parenting has never been easy, but in today's postmodern confusion it is an even greater challenge. Stuart Scott and Martha Peace combine conviction and compassion as they offer keen biblical insights on the task of parenting. Every parent needs to be constantly learning parenting from the Word of God. Stuart Scott and Martha Peace are trustworthy guides parents will learn to trust. Blessed are the children whose parents read this book.
