Title
Response to Oosterhuis: Discipline Versus Punishment
Abstract

The authors critique Oosterhuis's article "Abolishing the Rod," Journal of Psychology and Theology, 21, 127-133. Central to the critique is the distinction between discipline and punishment, which is unclear in Oosterhuis's discussion. Response also contends that punishment is not obsolete merely because it is ancient; the "radical change" between Old and New Testaments is challenged; and the source of authority is ascribed to Scripture rather than trends of modern educational psychology.
