Give Them Grace

Is sound theology only for people who have their act together? How is the gospel of free justification relevant to people who struggle with utterly broken lives? Michael Horton discusses this issue with Elyse Fitzpatrick, coauthor of Counsel from the Cross: Connecting Broken People to the Love of Christ. Mike also talks with Elyse about the problem of moralistic parenting as she addresses it in her new book, Give Them Grace: Dazzling Kids with the Love of Jesus.

Remembering that we and our children are at the same time justified yet sinners lessens the surprises and disappointments(and arm twisting). Grace puts air into our relationships and our behaviors without having to worry that we or they will turn antinomian( I think this impossible for a Christian to do anyways). Teach them to pray using the ten commandments. Catechism them in these laws so that they can see how great the extension is and how ridiculously futile it is to try being that it wasn't given for the keeping in the first place. Then beat them over the head with the gospel!
"The law says "do this" and it is never done. Grace says, "believe this" and everything is already done" !

Excellent interview. . . Honestly, I liked it even better than the book.

"Give them Grace" is a far sight better than most of what passes for Christian parenting books these days -- my one wish is that it included more thinking from the view of the place of children in the Covenant. . . Ah, well. . . No one book can be all that I want it to be.
