Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream by David Platt -- I wanted to like this more than I did. Not that I disagree with the premise - I do, very much so - I just have issues with the "in the next year everyone MUST" .... God calls His children to different things at different times and in different places, and I'm not sure the author gets that. /cw 10/2014
Our pastor gave these out to the congregation...and I read it most of the way through. The message is most doable for when you are first starting out in life. I find that once you have a home and have your life established (especially in this economy), it's nearly impossible to drop it all and embrace his message. To do so would bring up questions of stewardship as well as just send us out homeless. Still, it's a worthy and good message and I'm frustrated at where we are in life in this regard! God is gracious and able and mighty to bring about whatever changes He desires, and to teach whatever hard lessons we need in the meantime.
Definitely worth reading.

Child training book with real examples
This book is not about discipline, nor problem children. The emphasis is on the training of a child before the need to discipline arises. It is apparent that most parents never attempt to train a child to obey. They wait until the child becomes unbearable and then explode. With proper training, discipline can be reduced to 5% of what many now practice. As you come to understand the difference between training and discipline, you will have a renewed vision for your family—no more raised voices, no contention, no bad attitudes, fewer spankings, a cheerful atmosphere in the home, and total obedience from your children. A couple, stressed out with the conflict of three young children, after spending the weekend with us and hearing some of these principles, changed their strategy. One week later, they exclaimed, "I can't believe it; we went to a friend's house, and when I told my children to do something, they immediately, without question, obeyed." These truths are not new, deep insights from the professional world of research, rather, the same principles the Amish use to train their stubborn mules, the same technique God uses to train his children.
