In 1994, Michael and Debi Pearl published To Train Up A Child. The book has sold over 700,000 copies, becoming the “handbook on child training” for many homeschool families. The Pearls received so many child training questions in the mail that they began publishing a free newsletter to answer them—No Greater Joy. As the mailing list grew into the thousands, subscribers kept asking for back issues, thus the publication of No Greater Joy Volume One. We have since published Volume Two, and Volume Three—each book representing about two years of articles from back issues of the newsletter. If you have read To Train Up A Child and you have questions, chances are you will find the answers in the No Greater Joy series.
Our first book on child training, To Train Up A Child, has now been distributed in a quantity approaching 800,000. In answer to the many questions we receive in the mail, Deb and I began the publication of a newsletter, No Greater Joy. It started out as eight pages but soon grew to twenty-four. It is now distributed to over 45,000 homes.
We found that most of the questions we were asked had already been answered in one of our previous newsletter articles. The demand for back newsletters was so great that it became a burden to maintain an inventory. Thus, we compiled our second book on child training, No Greater Joy Volume One.
But the letters continued to come in, and new issues were raised or old ones needed further attention. More newsletter articles were written. So now we give you a further compilation of articles in this: No Greater Joy Volume Two.
It is a provocative experience to read the many letters we receive daily. One letter will tear at our souls as we read of the pain and injury occurring in a family. The next letter will thrill us with wonder at the miracles God has accomplished in a parent’s heart. Debi and I are always discussing, analyzing, praying, and writing. Much has been written that we are not yet ready to make public. In time, as our hearts are settled and our keyboards express our minds, we will address a broader scope of family issues.
We pray that in this volume you will find a little light to direct your steps in the most important job in all of human history—training up a child in the way he should go.
Volume Two of our collection of the best articles from No Greater Joy Magazine.
