Christian Tory MP Nadine Dorries wants the web company to stop selling To Train Up a Child because she believes it advocates beating children.
A Christian Tory MP is calling for a ban on a controversial Christian parenting book that tells parents how to train their child to obey.
Nadine Dorries wants Amazon to stop selling To Train Up a Child by US Evangelicals Michael and Debi Pearl.
She tells Premier's Des Busteed why she thinks the book needs to go.
However, one of the book's authors, Michael Pearl, is denying the MP's allegations telling Premier's Des Busteed the guide's details have been taken out of context.
Premier has contacted Amazon and is still awaiting a response.
