The best gift any parent can give their children is to raise them in the discipline, nurture, and instruction of the Lord. No other inheritance will have eternal value, or will impact the world in which they live. As the author says, "The man who does not make the religious character of his children the supreme end of all his conduct towards them may profess to believe as a Christian, but certainly acts as an atheist".
The Christian Father's Present to His Children is not only a gift from a Christian father to his own children, but is a gift from the author to parents of any generation.

An Address to Christian Parents
John Angell James (1785-1859) was thus an evangelical leader in the important era between the death of John Wesley and the advent of C. H. Spurgeon. He trained at David Bogue’s College at Gosport, Hants, and served his entire ministry at Carrs Lane Congregational Church, Birmingham. His published works were numerous and their circulation was probably not exceeded by any other Nonconformist leader of that day.
