About the Author

Introducing Michael and Debi Pearl Michael and Debi Pearl have been married since 1971. They have 5 children and 15 grandchildren. Between them they have authored 14 books and 8 booklets which combined have sold millions. Much of what they write deals with marriage, child training, and homeschooling. One of their recent books, Good and Evil (Bible stories in Marvel comic format), has been published into 25 languages with another 60 translations soon to be ready for press. The Pearl's also publish a 32 page bi-monthly magazine with a subscription of over 100,000. Needless to say they are prolific writers and public speakers. On another note, Michael is an inductee into the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame and holds several world titles, including Gold Cup winner of 2008-9, long distance thrower of the year with a record all time high of hitting a four inch target at 63 feet, and he is the undisputed best tomahawk thrower of 2009, holding the world title. When he is not teaching the Bible or speaking to audiences on how to have a good marriage and obedient children he is teaching kids how to stick a bull's eye with a knife or hawk. Debi Pearl and husband Michael have 5 children and 15 grandchildren. Between them they have author 14 books and 8 booklets which combined have sold millions. Learn more about them and sign up for the No Greater Joy bi-monthly magazine at NoGreaterJoy.org.Debi Pearl grew up during the 1960s at the height of the hippie revolution and the Jesus Movement. The forced draft due to the Vietnam War brought a sense of eternity to the youth, provoking them to seriously consider their souls. It was a time of a great move of the Spirit of God. As a teenager, dressed in tie-dye tee shirt and long drooping peasant skirt, she stood on the highways and byways sharing the gospel and seeing miracle after miracle of God's amazing grace. She married her life mate, Michael Pearl, in 1971.

Format: Paperback
"It is sometimes true that mothers' spankings are not at all painful. If your spankings are too light to gain his respect, an increase in intensity might be more persuasive."

Any book that contains those words, should not be allowed to be sold in the civilised world.
That is just one example of many situations in this book, where you just beat your child into submission.

I almost didn't buy this because of the dreadful reviews left for it and other publications by NGJ on here but I am so glad that after being put off a few times my husband and I finally came back to it! When I did my research I found that the Pearls have five well rounded, strong charactered adult children- all testifying to the wonderful upbringing they experienced... You can look them up on you tube and see for yourself the joy on their faces and the strong bonds they have for each other. There are a lot of misquotes and fabrications put out there on the web by enemies of the Christian teaching of salvation by grace through faith in Christ. So much so that I almost fell for them, HOWEVER what a joyous home ours has been transformed into since we learned from this book about pouring biblical love into our three children, "smiling at them at least every half an hour", showing them our delight and stopping to play etc. What peace also, since we got an insight into a child's right to his own property and other things like dealing with sibling rivalry and NOT intervening etc. It also warns about the danger of a parent angrily using discipline to their own selfish ends.
I think that serious bible believing Christians should definitely read this literature and judge for themselves. It is not written for liberal modernists, it's for born again Christians who love God and value the Bible.

Basically this book advocates child abuse. If you want to abuse your kids, buy it. But make sure your neighbours don't see or hear you using the techniques it advocates, because if they do and they're right-thinking people, they'll shop you to Social Services before you can say "God wants me to hit you". And serve you right.

Jeez, I can't believe publisher's print this sort of dangerous rubbish. There are lots of stupid people out there who might actually be influenced by it. Scarey.

Format: Paperback
This is particularly nasty specimen of U.S evangelical Christianity. Its subject is physical punishment for children. For example, advice on what kind of instrument is most suitable for beating a baby under one year of age. As is their custom the authors' perversion is 'supported' by Biblical texts.

2.0 out of 5 stars Even when drawing very strong boundaries I desire to show and share in His amazing love for us with all people 30 Jun. 2015
By Cherie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All their books are way to punitive and manipulative for my taste. I definitely believe that coming from a position of grace and mercy is what we all need. Even when drawing very strong boundaries I desire to show and share in His amazing love for us with all people, but especially with children.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should be called - how to train your child to be sociopath 23 Jan. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Reading volume 3, I decided to buy volume 1....volume 3 is not bad....volume 1....they are doing what they are saying should not be done in volume 3...switching/licking the child if you see something you don't like, and make sure you don't show emotion, make sure we assert superiority until they submit to you (behavior manipulation that should be avoided stated in book 3) Mike pearl, write this, is as if he wants to train them like an animal....although I agree with some of the writings, if we follow them exactly the way Mike pearl stated them, you might mistreat your child.....i wonder how his children will turn up....this book Should be called...how to train your child to be sociopaths.....(not a psychopath).

Second issue, Every child is different, every family culture, environment is different.... in volume 1 I feel, Mike pearl assumed generalization applied based on his (perceived) superior intellect/insight, culture, family situation, and (inconsistent) bible exegesis...my take...skip it, read Voddie Boucham's, Kent hughes', John MacArthur's, Tim Keller's books on marriage and families... is this harsh....yes, but this is scary stuff ... feels cultish....I wonder what denominations they belong to...

5.0 out of 5 stars a question and answer form 17 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've read the peals to train up and child book and it was really helpful. these books are a little different in that they are question and answer books. A reader would write in with different questions concerning their children and the pearls would write back with their answers. they were then printed in a three part books. with a mom of three I have a LOT of questions. these were really helpful in realizing that its not just about disciple but loving and nurturing your kids while "training them"
