Parenting Against the Tide

A handbook for 21st century parenting

Ann Benton


There are many books on parenting by self-appointed experts who give us a bucketful of sugar to help the medicine go down. Ann Benton’s parenting book is different. It is full of not just home truths but biblical truths. It is a handbook in the mode of a manual helping parents to work through what it means to be biblical parents and what to watch out for along the way. . . . Ann has done a service for us all by putting firmly down on paper the standard of God’s infallible word against the secularist tide which washes into our family life. It is a gritty, real, honest and above all truthful book which points us to the best parent of all – Our Father God.

David Burrowes, MP

Ann Benton’s Parenting Against the Tide is simply superb. Here is a book that equips Christian parents to be careful, wise, and God-honoring in doing what is best both for their children and for their homes, more broadly . . . . This well-written, inspiring, practical, and winsome book will help parents sort through the muddled confusion they face. We highly recommend this parenting book, one of the best we have read.

Bruce and Jodi Ware, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky, USA

This book brilliantly punctures many of the current orthodoxies surrounding children and parenting. Ann Benton shows that as we set out to please God in fulfilling our role as parents, that is the surest road to joy in family life. Each chapter is full of biblical wisdom and common sense.

Ann Benton has succeeded in covering the most cutting edge issues (she also deals with technology, indoctrination, home–schooling and sex) without writing at overwhelming length or in too much detail. After all, how many parents whether working full–time in the home or in the work place have very much time to read!
