About the Author
'A thankless task.' 'A waste of time.' Two of the ways worn out people have described the Christian training of children. You don't have to feel that way! In this book you will find encouragement, practical help and biblical principles. You will also go away with a new vision of the importance of the work in which you are involved. C.H Spurgeon shows us that telling young people about Jesus is the most important task given to anyone, be they parent, teacher or youth leader.
I rate this book a five because everyone who deals with children in a Christian context should read it. Short- because it is not long and sweet- because whether you agree with him or not it is a great book to stir you towards the gospel and how to interact with children around the gospel. He is a master wordsmith and you will find yourself loving your savior more because of his love for children. You will also find that you are challenged to think about your tradition and how they deal with children and conversion. Remember he is a writing from a baptist perspective.
