Biblical and Practical Parenting Book Aug 27, 2007
This is an excellent parenting book that gives solid Biblical principles on parenting and also provide very practical advice as well. The personal anecdotes of the Hughes' family are also heartwarming and make it evident that the Hughes' have truly lived out these principles. It is an encouragement to read as we struggle with raising our children in the Lord day by day.
Best parenting/family book out there Dec 29, 2004
This book is a re-release/update of the Hughes's book "Common Sense Parenting," which is out of print. I've bought quite a few used copies of that one, but I keep giving it away because it's so good. My (current) copy is heavily underlined and highlighted. That's why I was so happy to see "Disciplines of a Godly Family." The Hughes share biblical principles of family, using their own experiences with their four children as examples. The book takes parenting seriously but also has a lighthearted, humorous approach. It gives solid spiritual advice and also wonderful practical advice--all the while backing it up with the Bible. It also includes family-friendly book and movie lists and even recipes. It would make a wonderful baby shower or baby baptism gift.
I personally love it because, while acknowledging the foibles of their children (and themselves) and the fact that their family life was not perfect, it stays away from a lot of the sarcasm and negative humour you find in many parenting books. The Hughes's love for each other, their children, and God is evident here. As they say, their only regret is that they didn't have more children. I highly recommend this book!
Classic on Spiritual Disciplines for the Family! Mar 24, 2004
When I first read Kent Hughes book on "Disciplines of Godly Man" I realized that Kent had more than a godly family but is leaving a godly resource for the body of Christ. This is a must read for any family who wants to build godly traditions and holiness within the family. I also recommend highly both Kent's wifes book "Disciplines of a Godly Woman" and the foundation discipline book "Disciplines of a Godly Man" which is up there is Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster. If you are looking for becoming a disciplined person in your family, then is the the right book for you. Kent has also written commentaries on several books of the Bible which are also helpful to the lay bible reader. He is a faithful pastor and joy to read.
