Innovative Bible-Based Parenting Book Jul 3, 2008
If you are looking for some inspiring reading in improving your parenting skills, or learning how to be a parent in the first place, this is the book for you. Rick Osborne pulls examples from Bible stories (Adam and Eve, Abraham, Lot, Moses, David, Solomon, Mary and Joseph, Paul, etc.) to illustrate what good and bad parenting looks like. Not meant for the hard-core scholar, but for a regular person who wants God to be their guide as they tackle one of today's toughest roles: parenting.

Not to be overlooked is what Rick Osborne and the biblical parentage he draws from have to say about "peer proofing" a child. Informed and informative, inspired and inspiring, What Mary & Joseph Knew about Parenting would prove to be of immense value and aid to parents regardless of their denominational affiliation or background.
Lots of "A-HA" moments! Oct 11, 2005
This book has so many "a-ha" moments, it's not funny! It guides you to read stories in the Bible that you've read a thousand times, only this time you're reading it from the perspective of a parent---and what a difference it makes! The practical help that is easy to apply to your own parenting, the encouragement and the wisdom that is in this book is amazing and truly helpful.
I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is a parent, considering becoming a parent or who wants to be a parent "one day." It's an invaluable tool to have in your library!
