Samuel Martin has posted an extended excerpt from Chapter 7 of his book, Thy Rod and Thy Staff, They Comfort Me: Christians and the Spanking Controversy, in which he looks at Proverbs 23:13-14, “Do not withhold correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and deliver his soul from hell.”
By the way, someone told me that they were having a problem finding where to purchase Samuel Martin’s book because on Amazon they are charging $90. Well, you may purchase it here for under $11.
Edited to add: You can now download Samuel Martin’s Book free here. 🙂
