For years, Dr. David Erickson has been sharing about spanking and the Bible through Flourishing Homes & Families on social media. This deep dive will not only bring together all this information into a comprehensive discussion on the subject, but it will also delve into more complex hermeneutical (Biblical interpretation) questions that he has never covered before. This deep dive will include a guidebook that will show the top-notch scholarship that underlies the presentation.
While this deep dive is geared towards parents, the guidebook will include a bibliography that they can share with pastors and church leaders who are curious about this topic.
