Two New Book Reviews on Parenting A Soul

I must say that the the amount of material per page reminds me of William R. Newell's commentary on Romans. How Dr. Ketchum puts an obvious expansive knowledge of the subject matter into such clear and concise modules is awesome. I feel safe in saying that there are many colleges where the student would not get this much meat on any given subject in two semesters or more.

Indeed, it is a text book but it is nearly a library in one volume. If a person could only afford his Bible and one other book this one would certainly be on the list of those I would suggest.

While we often have many different Adult Sunday School classes, I would strongly suggest that they be combined and go through this course together. There is no age group that cannot benefit from this material. Interaction among the groups during this course of instruction would not only strengthen the family units but could also spark an understanding and bonding between generations that we have long lacked in the Body of Christ.

I can see Youth Pastors using it to raise up a youth group that would actually know doctrine and not just enjoy pizza and pithy sayings in mini-devotionals. The solid foundation given them here would prepare them for life’s challenges to their faith, relationships and careers.

Teachers of young children could also use this course. There are principles that need to be sown in the heart as soon as possible. A wise teacher could easily adapt this course to their ministry by discerning what their age group could comprehend. Sadly, many kids in the Pre-Primary age group know about topics we never even considered until high school. How great it would be to use the scriptural principles in this book to relate to the reality of their lives.

Thank you Dr. Ketchum for writing this book and allowing me the privilege of both reading it and giving this review.

Parenting a Soul, by Dr. Lance Ketchum, is a great tool that should be in the tool box of every family. This book would be especially helpful for a young adult parenting class. The lessons taught in this work are not only Biblical, but practical in nature. The questions at the end of each section are very helpful and would foster discussion between the parents as they read it together. I would recommend this book to any pastor to be used in his church, and to any family looking for Biblical help.
