Item description for What the Bible Says About Child Training (2nd Edition) by J. Richard Fugate, Virginia Ruth Fugate & Dr Myron Yeager...
Overview The second edition of "What the Bible Says About . . . Child Training" has the depth of a seminary textbook, yet the simplicity of a practical how-to manual. It contains 80 pages of author comments, examples, and anecdotes.
Publishers Description What the Bible Says About Child Training is the title of a bestselling Christian book (300,000+ copies) and of a seminar nominated "Best Film Series" by the Christian Film Distributors in 1981. This material is unique in that the subject is handled solely from the Biblical viewpoint. The author accepts the Bible as absolute truth and as infinitely superior to any human system of thinking. There has been no attempt to modify God's word to make it compatible with human philosophies, psychology, sociology, religious views, or public opinion. What the Bible Says About Child Training has been accepted by many Bible-believing churches as the standard text on child training since 1980. It has now been translated into seven foreign languages. This is a study designed to help parents to better understand their role and to reveal the mechanics for successfully raising children. To accomplish these ends this book will carefully define parental accountability, authority, and responsibility. It also describes the nature of a child and explains his Biblically-defined stages of development. With these principles firmly established, the book will present the Biblical system for training children. This system is divided into two distinct phases, controlling and teaching. The control phase is the establishment of the parents' right of rulership over the will of the child. When parents can control their children, they have laid the necessary foundation for the fulfillment of the Biblical commandment for children to obey their parents. The teaching phase can only be accomplished by parents who have first trained their children to obey. This is because, before a child will receive the instructions of his parents, he must first respect their word; and before he will respect their word, he must first become obedient.

More About J. Richard Fugate, Virginia Ruth Fugate & Dr Myron Yeager
Mr. Fugate personally accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and was baptized into the Body of Christ at Reinhardt Bible Church, Garland, TX in 1968. He and his wife, Virginia, have attended independent Bible-teaching churches in each city where God has sent them to minister over the past 40+ years (Dallas, Austin, Tempe, Sacramento, and now finally Apache Junction, AZ). After committing himself in 1971 to serve God anywhere, or in any manner he might be called, Mr. Fugate learned Greek and studied many thousands of hours in the original languages of the Old and New Testament texts. He did not rely on existing systematic Theologies or Bible commentaries; convinced that he needed to perform his own exegesis and word studies to verify or develop doctrines that are substantiated by Scripture alone. He founded the Foundation for Biblical Research (FBR) in 1979 "to determine the one true meaning of Scripture based on honest research and a scientifically sound system of hermeneutics." All of Mr. and Mrs. Fugate's books are written based on that research. Soon after his commitment to serve God, Mr. Fugate was called as Business Manager and later became Vice President of Finance for Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.). While there, Mr. and Mrs. Fugate were led to start a pilot Christian school in Garland, TX, based on their experience of having home schooled their own three children for two previous years. During the 70's, Mr. Fugate wrote What the Bible Says About Child Training, presented parenting seminars in hundreds of churches, and directed the work of FBR. In March of 1982 he was hired as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of A.O.P. in Tempe, AZ where he served for the next 12 years. After A.O.P. was bought out in 1995, the Fugate's traveled around the country giving seminars on Biblical parenting and writing 2nd editions of their most popular books. Mr. Fugate then served as Business Manager of Family Ministries in Sacramento, CA from 2000 through 2004 until his "retirement" to be full-time Director of The Foundation for Biblical Research in Apache Junction, AZ. Here he continues to conduct Bible research, teach, and write on Bible-Based Theology. Throughout the past 30 years he taught in each of the five churches where he ministered. The Theological and Philosophical Positions of the Foundation for Biblical Research can be seen at its website, www.FoundationforBiblicalResearch.org
J. Richard Fugate currently resides in Citrus Heights. J. Richard Fugate was born in 1939.
Reviews - What do customers think about What the Bible Says About Child Training (2nd Edition)?
Love and Respect is what children need! Sep 9, 2008
Fear will only make children fear you and other adults. This book is wrong and I would not recommend any parent new or experienced to listen to this authors advice. Making a child submit will make them weak and emotionally unstable. A child disciplined with love and respect or a toddler redirected to an activity they are allowed to do will be a happy child and know that they are always in a safe place where their parents love them and respect them for the individuals they are. Not trying to make them submit to the child they want them to be. No infant should be spanked for crying that is their only way to communicate hunger, discomfort and tiredness! That is absurd!
The love of Jesus Christ Jul 14, 2008
In today's society there is so much doctrine and Bible teaching getting mixed up with emotions and feelings that we have become a blasphemous church. How can a person say that it is not biblical to use the rod on a child when so many areas in the Bible teach it. Look at the very nature of our God...He is our ultimate example of scripture being used correctly. Our God is not quick to use the rod, but He does use it. (i.e. the Israelites in the desert for 40 years, the flood) *Note that in all these examples God repeatedly told the Isralites what to do and gave them many chances to obey. Our God is a God of fear and love. I will not argue that God is gentle and loving, for that is the beauty of our salvation. But the fear of the Lord is also taught to us in the Bible, a fear of concequences for our actions, a fear of our rebellion breaking communion with our Lord and Saviour, a fear that we might go to hell. These are all very real and very biblical. So please, calm down and take a real look at the Bible. Seperate yourself from your childish, worldy emotions and accept the Bible, the whole Bible, for the truth that it teaches. I would also like to add another note...the best place to find information on child training IS the Bible and not all these self-help, emotionally modern books. If you seek a book to use in addition to the Bible make sure they are using scripture correctly to back it up and that they are displaying the completely character of God that we find in our whole Bible from cover to cover.
STAY AWAY Jun 4, 2008
This is an absolutely horrible book. I know so many kids, me included, that were rarely if ever spanked and have done quite well.
The basic idea of this book is that you have to break your child by beating him into submission. Only then will he come under perental authority, which fugate sees as godly authority. It is a horrible notion that you have to break a child's spirit before they will do the "right thing."
How can a child ever learn anything but "Might=Right," using these methods? How can he or she ever make a truely moral decision about anything when it is all fear-based.
In short, I wouldn't use this book if I were TAKING F---ING SHROOMS.
Parents must have! May 25, 2008
I have used What the Bible Says About Child Training in our church and school ministry since it was first published. We made it a pre-requisite to enrollment for new families. The distinction between passive and active rebellion alone is worth the price. I have also used both editions of the companion video series.
Very Helpful & Most Important: BIBLICAL! Apr 22, 2008
This book is a great resource for parents. It gives plain, simple advice straight from the Bible. I would recommend this book to any parent or anyone thinking of being a parent. After reading this book and following it, I would follow it up with reading Tedd Trippe's "Shepherding A Child's Heart".
This book does not replace the Bible but puts all the Bible says about child rearing in one concise place. Excellent book! Keep it on the shelf forever!
