Few things grieve the heart of a Christian parent more than unsaved or wicked children. It was this concern that prompted Edward Lawrence, a 17th century Puritan pastor, to write this booklet to his own children. The thought of being eternally separated from them was a tormenting thought to him.
In seven short chapters Lawrence shows them his loving heart and desire for their salvation. There is strong encouragement to both parents and children alike. He shows that many of the Scripture’s most godly characters had ungodly children. He does not blame parents for the spiritual condition of their unsaved children. Rather, he suggests directions for nurturing them towards Christ.
