Evangelizing our Children

The Baptist & Reflector, the TN Baptist paper, last week ran a brief article I wrote on presenting the gospel to our children. The article grew out of an earlier post here on John Brown’s book of questions and answers on the Westminster catechism. The article does not say anything all that earth shattering. I simply wanted to show people the forthrightness which used to characterize the way believers explained the gospel to their children. Brown is so clear in presenting the desperate plight of lost humanity and just as clear in presenting the glories of the gospel. May we do the same with our own children.

Great article. We (living in a world not of God) see many times where the "politcal correct" idea is beginning to flood the gospel. Unfortunately, parents easily fall into that trap when asked the tough questions. Tough questions need tough and loving truth, not quick and easy fixes that give growth to confusion.

I'd like to get some more of Brown's writings. Any directions?

Perhpas the best place to start would be the book from which I was quoting in this article. A link in the post will take you to more info on the book.
There are many Scottish John Brown's so it can be easy to get lost. This one is referred to as JohnBrown of Haddington. The easiest way to see what of his is available may be to go to www.heritagebooks.org and browse. They have several of his books.
