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.
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.

"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 childs 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 childs 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 dont 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 childs 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 Gods 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 childrens, 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 wont 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.
