Rick Shrader‘s Review:
Mulvihill has written a lot on grandparenting and parenting. This is a new addition to his list of subjects in that genre, but a welcome addition for young parents. The book is divided into four parts: 1) Getting Started; which is starting your children out very young understanding biblical principles of relationships. 2) Marriage; seven chapters on what God says marriage is, and preparing even young children for the time when they will marry. 3) Sex and Purity; how to use biblical verses and passages on teaching sex to your children. In this section he promotes using clear biblical language to young children about sex because, he argues, the Scripture is for everyone. 4) Dating; that the purpose for dating is marriage. Mulvihill is very specific that the only purpose for dating is the selection of a good candidate for marriage. He also is very insistent on the parent’s role in overseeing this process. Though I may not be as specific in every area, Mulvihill does a good job of encouraging parents in the importance of raising their children with the view of a biblical marriage.
