No parent is perfect, but all of us can do better! Child raising is one day at a time - best done with love's constancy and wisdom drawn from experience and research. Essentials include food for healthy growth, abiding love for nurture and self-confidence, stimulation of mind for learning gain, and emotional support to develop social skills that are so critical for friendships, formal learning, and purposeful living. The following themes run through the POWERFUL POTENTIAL of PARENT(S): Parent impact is greatest in childhood; parent potential continues throughout life. Each life stage builds upon the previous one; early childhood home experiences are foundational. Every adult is a unique mentor and role model; two parent(s) double the messages to offspring. Body, mind, emotion, and spirit interact; internal and external forces affect all humans. Child rearing works on probability theory; positive outcomes increase when brought up right. Each generation sets the course for the next one; this ongoing cycle bridges past to present and to future. Practical recommendations are laid out in handbook format (61 pages) for every stage of human growth; they can serve as a referent "checklist." Also, each chapter ends with reflective questions that encourage introspection and promote meaningful dialogue. The writing is an easy read. In sum, this book is filled with wisdom of the ages as well as what recent research confirms as sound parenting practices. This truth holds throughout: A child's parent is the first, best, and only lifelong teacher.

This memorial volume both displays and evaluates the canonical approach of Brevard S. Childs, whose attention to history through time animated his interest in the Bible’s use in the church through the ages up to and including the present. Just as Childs wrote on a wide range of topics canonical and theological—both Testaments, Isaiah and Exodus, the Pauline letters, the history of biblical interpretation, biblical theology, and historical, theological, and methodological questions—the contributors to this volume, seasoned colleagues as well as younger scholars who studied with Childs, offer an international collection of historical, theological, and New Testament essays as well as contributions focused on the Old Testament. The contributors are Stephen B. Chapman, Brevard S. Childs, Don Collett, Daniel R. Driver, Mark W. Elliott, Leonard G. Finn, Mark Gignilliat, Bernd Janowski, Jörg Jeremias, Leander E. Keck, Neil B. MacDonald, David L. Petersen, Murray A. Rae, C. Kavin Rowe, and Christopher R. Seitz.

Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments

Theological Reflection on the Christian Bible

This monumental work is the first comprehensive biblical theology to appear in many years and is the culmination of Brevard Child's lifelong commitment to constructing a biblical theology that surmounts objections to the discipline raised over the past generation. Childs rejects any approaches that overstress either the continuity or discontinuity between the Old and New Testaments. He refuses to follow the common pattern in Christian thought of identifying biblical theology with the New Testament's interest in the Old. Rather, Childs maps out an approach that reflects on the whole Christian Bible with its two very different voices, each of which retains continuing integrity and is heard on its own terms.
