"The war for the hearts and minds of our children is on, and John MacArthur's new book will show you where the strategic battles are being fought and how to engage biblically." Kirk Cameron - Husband, Father, Actor, Filmmaker

In The War on Children, bestselling author, John MacArthur, offers the tools needed to understand the enemy's battle plan and be ready for the next assault. As God's people, we need to:

  • Teach our children God's Word

  • Train them in righteousness

  • Give them wise and biblically based guidance

  • And above all, give them our extravagant love

Every day, on a multitude of battlefronts, Satan is deploying weapons of mass corruption against our children. Modern culture has been systematically designed with an agenda that is aggressively anti-God, anti-Christ, and anti-Scripture, intended to corrupt and consume young, impressionable hearts and minds.

We are in the middle of a dangerous ideological conflict with eternity at stake. Christian parents cannot simply float passively along with the drift of our culture. We need to:

  • Be aware of the threats this world poses to our children

  • Understand the enemy's battle plan and be ready for the next assault

  • Prepare our children for the attacks they will face from a culture intent on their destruction.
