I received this book from my mom, who enjoys reading material from Ken Ham.


I've nearly finished the book and I'll write more when I'm done, but I want to get down some thoughts that are fresh in my mind now.

Here's where I'm coming from--my life, right now: I have an almost two-year-old I deal with all day, every day. I think I have a pretty solid foundation of principles to work from in raising my child, most of which are an extension of principles I need to live by myself in order to li

Returning to the Word of God as our foundation, not only for living, but also for parenting, is the main focus of the book Raising Godly Children In An Ungodly World: Leaving a Lasting Legacy — written by Ken and Steve Ham. The authors continually stress the need to teach our children the Word of God, and that without the Word, people perish (Hosea 4:6). We have a whole generation that is advancing without Biblical knowledge. Deuteronomy 6 commands us to teach our children in order that all may ...more

In Raising Godly Children in an Ungodly World, Ken Ham, well-loved founder of Answers in Genesis and Australian “missionary to the godless country of America,” divulges the secrets of Christian parental success. Using endearing anecdotes from his childhood and hefty Scriptural backup, he gives very practical tips to those who wish to build a foundation for a lasting family legacy. Ham warns parents to guard from the modern pagan religion of tolerance and secular humanism taught in schools and ex ...more

I agreed with almost everything in this book, and deeply appreciate the ministry of AiG. But I rated this book low for the following reasons:

1. The book probably should have been about 75 pages. It was very repetitive.

2. I wish the book had been more practical. It (repeatedly) emphasized the biblical foundations of theology and a biblical worldview. They kept telling us, "It is important to raise godly children in an ungodly world" (repeatedly) but did not tell us HOW.

3. The book needed more e
Ham was quite repetitive but broad up some great points and had good stats to back up his beliefs. I felt he raised some great points, outlined good initiatives that we can implement in our home and make the steps that are necessary to raise Godly children.
Steven van Doorn
Good, solid, but pretty basic.

Also funny how Ken Ham's focus on Genesis 1-11 comes through very strong. I understand that's his passion, but it seemed like he was hopping up on his soapbox ever other chapter whether or not it fit perfectly.
"If you are going to leave a legacy like Bunyan or Luther, you are going to have to decide to go against the flow, because the flow of the world today is leading to decay, death, and even hell."
Erin Butler
All Christian parents should read this! A wonderful reminder to stand firm on the Word of God as our everything resource, especially for parenting!
Must read for all parents that desire to raise their children in a Godly way. This book is well written and easily read as a nightly devotional
