God, Marriage, and Family

This is the second edition (2004, 2010) of Kostenberger’s book (with David W. Jones). This is one of those books which I have owned for quite a few years but used it for reference purposes as you might use a dictionary. Last week I took it with me on a trip and read it in […]

Men and Women in the Church

This is a 2021 book by Kevin DeYoung on the role of male and female at home and at church. DeYoung is a traditional complementarian who believes in the leadership of men with the obligation of husbands to love their wives and the followership of wives with the obligation to be submissive. He says, “So […]

Courageous Grandparenting

This 2018 book by Cavin Harper, founder and president of Christian Parenting Network, has been mentioned and recommended by numerous other writers in this subject. The strength of the book is his strong promotion of grandparents as necessary examples and speakers to the younger generations. I thought the best section included grandparents as gatekeepers and […]

Grandparenting with a Purpose

Of a growing number of books on grandparenting, this is a 2019 book by Lillian Penner which is an update of a 2010 book. This book majors on how to pray for grandchildren. It is more a book of methodology rather than exposition. Penner gives numerous examples of how you might pray for this characteristic […]

Grandparenting with Grace

Larry McCall is a graduate of Grace College and Theological Seminary and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and now pastors a church in Winona Lake, Indiana. In my reading of books on grandparenting, this was good in the areas of Leading a child to Christ (an area usually avoided or passed over quickly), dealing with divorce […]

Hopeful Parenting

David Jeremiah wrote this book in 2008. As I read it in 2020 I sometimes smile at the amount of change that has taken place in these twelve years and pressure that has been added to families and kids. But I also am thankful for good reminders of eternal truths from God’s Word that do […]

Overcoming Grandparenting Barriers

Larry Fowler is the founder of The Legacy Coalition which is printing this series of books called Grandparenting Matters, edited by Josh Mulvihill.  Fowler was the international director of Awana for many years so he has much to say about kids and those who love them.  This is an interesting book (only about 100 pages) […]

Long Distance Grandparenting

This book is one in a series called “Grandparenting Matters,” edited by Josh Mulvihill.  This series belongs to The Legacy Coalition, Larry Fowler, founder.  These are fairly short books, around 100 pages, on various subjects having to do with grandparenting.  This book contains some practical suggestions on grandparents that have the challenge of living distances […]

My Grandfather’s Son

This is an autobiography of Justice Clarence Thomas.  It takes his life from birth (1948) to confirmation as Associate Supreme Court Judge.  Thomas grew up poor on the back side of the tracks in the little town of Pinpoint, GA, not far from Savannah.  It was a time of racism and difficulty for black families […]

Parenting God’s Way

I read this new but short book (2017, just 41 pages) while researching material on grandparenting.  I have watched Alistair Begg’s career from afar, being distantly knowledgable of Charlotte Baptist Chapel in Edinburgh where Begg once served as associate pastor.  This book was probably a printed sermon Begg preached from Ephesians on the family.  It […]
