The best biblical parenting book I have come across (so far) is Withhold Not Correction, by Bruce A. Ray.
I want to give one of my readers a new copy of this book. And, I will pay the shipping (so long as you live in the US).
Here is why I love Withhold Not Correction:
1- It's principles are based on Scripture, not pop psychology!
2 - It teaches a parent how to correct a child using Scripture, so you are teaching them why you have to discipline.
3 - It has an appendix with MANY useful verses (itemized) for use when administering correction.
I cannot say enough good things about this book! While I believe that the Bible alone is sufficient for teaching us all things (including correcting children), this book is an excellent tool to stand alongside of the Scriptures.
A friend of Paul's gave us this copy today (no, it was not a Christmas gift), and since we already own it - we thought we would pass it on to one of my faithful readers.
Leave a comment about why you want to read the book, or about how much you love my blog - and I will enter your name in a drawing! And, since I had only one comment on my last giveaway, your odds are pretty good! It pays to support the new blogger with verbal feedback!
The drawing will be next Wednesday, December 31, 2008 (sometime in the evening). Good providence to you.
