Jennifer McGrail Reviews Gentle Firmness

Jennifer McGrail has posted a very favorable book review of Gentle Firmness by Stephanie Cox.  Here is an excerpt from her review:

Gentle Firmness, by Stephanie Cox, is one of the most important new books to join the gentle parenting movement, particularly for Christians.  Thorough and well-researched, it takes an unflinching look at the history of spanking within the Christian faith;  why the Bible doesn’t actually say what so many well-intentioned pro-spankers think it says; the harmful and often long-term effects of spanking;  and finally, practical suggestions on what peaceful parents can do instead.

It is an excellent review, so I’m sure you’re going to want to read the rest.

About Hermana Linda
Hermana means sister in Spanish and Linda is my name. I was born in late 1960 to a mother who had traveled around the world and had been impressed at the baby wearing she saw in Africa and Japan. While in Japan she purchased the baby carrier in which she is wearing me in my avatar. By the grace of God, I trusted Jesus as my personal savior in 1983. He gave me a husband in 1987 and 2 sons in the early 1990's. All glory to God.

    Dear Hermana Linda,

    Do you know of ANY Independent Fundamental Baptists who have spoken out AGAINST Hepzibah House and its fellow horrors? The reason I ask is that I have found it very difficult to find any who have. Please point me to Christians (particularly Independent Fundamental Baptist Christians) who have spoken out.

    I also ask because of a very tragic case. Here is the story ( Please, please share the info with me – what you know – and help this girl. Thank you and God bless.
