Readers should probably know a little about the author--that he was an Anglican Bishop of Evangelical persuasion who lived most of his life in the s he died midway through Yet, this short work turns out to be still relevant for parenting today. There were nuggets of wisdom offered throughout the work. For instance, the author brings out a great point that it's easy for parents to see what other parents does wrong.
Yet in the midst of this parents must examine themselves that they are Readers should probably know a little about the author--that he was an Anglican Bishop of Evangelical persuasion who lived most of his life in the s he died midway through Yet in the midst of this parents must examine themselves that they are parenting in a way that honors God.
I like the point Ryle made about making sure we teach our children to obey even if they don't understand, but that they understand your love for them and care should be something they trust in even if they don't understand with their feeble minds. I thought that was a good analogy of our Christian faith with God the Father as well. Also a good point was made about not spoiling your kids because a spoiled child in the end is not going to be a happy child.
I also was much encouraged by the point the author made that sometimes it's okay to teach our children spiritual matters even if they might not understand it right then and there of course, that's not an excuse to work hard in bringing things down to the kid's level.
This work was an encouragement for me as a new father of a child less than one year old--and as I realize the need of our times is Christian parents to raise up their children under the admonition of the Lord and the discipleship of children under a Christian worldview. May 30, Ashley rated it it was amazing. A short, biting "book. I love JC Ryle -- everything he writes is gold.
View 1 comment. Helped me to review and refocus on the importance and urgency of training up a child in the way he should go. Maybe our favorite parenting book actually booklet of all time. We used to buy them and give them as baby shower gifts. Ryle is an excellent teacher. I began reading this book when we had a miscarriage. This book is filled with much practical information such as taking children to church, teaching them how to pray, requiring obedience, etc.
No major breakthroughs, which makes me very thankful for my upbringing. Alan Witchalls has edited the language into modern English, and it seems that certain parts have been added. For example, in various sections he mentions the Internet 24 and DVDs So besides obvious parts, it's difficult to know I began reading this book when we had a miscarriage. So besides obvious parts, it's difficult to know exactly what is Ryle's and what is Witchalls's.
I'd like to read Ryle's version, just to see if the parts that I disagreed with were Witchalls's additions. May 05, Brandi Breezee rated it really liked it. Well done, but too short. The Bishop Ryle is always worth reading. Also, idleness. Pondering that point for a minute..
May 17, Eric Keel rated it it was amazing. Put this in the hands of parents! It's not an intimidating book at just under an hour to read Consider this a primer on parenting. I need to get like 15 copies and just pass them out now.
Writing so crisp. Chooses just the right word. Straight to your heart. May 21, Kayla rated it it was amazing. So good! Thankful to be listening to this book while my child is still so young.
Apr 23, Natalie rated it it was amazing. Great short read! Loved all his wisdom and hearing a little about his life at the end. There are a lot of parenting books out there and there are a ton of "theories" about the different approaches to and aspects of parenting.
Usually, they are contained in a book of about pages and yet only pages of the material is actually useful and worthwhile. Raising a child to love Jesus, resist the devil, and understand the dangers of this world and the dangers of their own human flesh and impulses-is not easy. Ryle, in short chapters, effectively addresses the important pieces of godly parenting. Beware of all of the psychology that has been developed in the last 50 years.
Some of it is good and wise counsel, but it can also distract from the most important actions of parenting. If I was to write a book about parenting, this is the book I would write and in the manner it is written. Sep 08, Mark A Powell rated it it was amazing.
Though first published more than a century ago, this little booklet from Ryle contains principles of parenting that still resonate today. He reminds Christian parents that their main concern is the eternal souls of their children, not primarily their comfort or convenience. Ryle has written a highly helpful, highly recommend book. May 29, Della Ray Dodgen rated it it was amazing. Then "Learn to say 'No' to your children. Then, I discovered this was published in !
That further proves these principles are timeless, because sin is timeless, and there will always be parents who struggle to parent in our Father's way. This book is old, but parenting does not change- because God does not change. I will definitely read this again when I have my own kids! Jan 29, Charise rated it it was amazing. I found this book both convicting and encouraging in my current stage of parenting.
It explains very well the gravity and importance of training our children up in the fear and admonition of the Lord. The author clearly articulated how valuable these biblical principles are and how important they are in being incorporated in the home.
The Duties Of Parents
Search for a title, author or subject This version, in modern English, is designed to help a new generation of parents understand the importance of a loving, caring, and godly home, not without discipline but where children come to know and understand God for themselves. This timeless Bible teaching from Ryle has been described by many as one of the best resources for parents, outside of the Bible. I suspect J C Ryle would be surprised, if not horrified, by the way modern parenting has sailed purposefully away from the Biblical model that he so fully endorses.
