Anne3 Stars Out Of 5April 18, 2010AnneIt is important to note that this book is written from a charismatic perspective.1) After talking first about how children are made and praying for your children to become who God created them to be and then talking about the times of days when we pray, the authors write about blessing our children in the third chapter. The authors say that these prayers are asking God's blessing for our children, but the wording and examples they give are in line with the idea of "Name it and Claim it". The chapter is mostly filled with examples of parents and grandparents speaking over their children and grandchildren.2) There is a great emphasis on spiritual warfare. At the church I attended in Denver, this become more and more of an area of concern for the church and the youth group. I do fully acknowledge the reality of spiritual warfare, but it is something that I have noticed is of more concern to charismatic churches than churches which are not charismatic. This is not a negative about the book, but more of an acknowledgement about how this book is different from books that are not written from a charismatic perspective.3) It was very interesting to me to see how the children were given as great a responsibility to pray as the adults. Many of the stories I do not doubt in any way to be true, but I don't understand them. Here is the crux of my struggle. I believe that the Bible is the inerrant and infallible Word of God. Some people might say that the Experience of God and the Word of God combine to make up the Truth of God. My heart does not find peace in that. It makes me uneasy. Any experience of God should be supported by the Truth in the Word of God. Any revelation should come back to the Word--not new revelation. The Word is not to be added to.Please note that I was given a complimentary copy of this book for review.
