Spare the Rod
Martin, son of former Ambassador College professor Ernest L. Martin, has long championed an alternative perspective. Those who still find corporal punishment acceptable include not just biblical literalists but, incredibly, Australian Presbyterians. Webb's book has the endorsement of a variety of leading figures within the evangelical fold including I. Howard Marshall (who wrote the foreward) and Darrell Bock. Jim West has posted a brief review online.
Webb challenges parents to "dare to read the Bible differently." All power to him.
