How to Bring Your Children to Christ...& Keep Them There: Avoiding the Tragedy of False Conversion

by Ray Comfort

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt   |  Interview


Is my child saved? For Christian parents, there is no greater question in life. Dedicating himself to practicing as well as training others in evangelism, Ray Comfort prepares dads and moms to raise their kids in the Lord.

Acknowledging that genuine salvation comes through the work of God, Comfort nonetheless builds a plan for parents to biblically introduce Christ to their charges. Using the Law as a tutor--as explained in Galatians 3:24--the author leads the reader through parables for instruction, and quotes from some of the greats including Charles Spurgeon.

Through this sometimes humorous, always real, tapestry of evangelistic truths, Comfort propels apathetic and concerned parents to momentum.

The author's philosophy of using the Ten Commandments as a guide to repentance is not simply biblically sound, but tragically overlooked in our 'seeker friendly' society. How else can one realize the need for a Savior? This principle applies not just to the training of children, but is essential to anyone's saving faith. In this truth, Comfort does not pull any punches. Blended with that are suggestions, from an obvious child-at-heart, that are practical ways to communicate with kids.

How to Bring Your Children to Christ is ideal for anyone involved in the spiritual training of youth, and is such an enjoyable read that you will want to complete it in one sitting. The fun-loving personality of the author combined with the timeless truths presented are an unbeatable combination. -- Stacy Oliver, Christian Book
