Thanks to Justin Taylor at Between Two Worlds for the heads up on a new book called Family Worship: In the Bible, in History, and in Your Home. Below is some information provided by Whitney’s website:
Don Whitney has written a book we truly need. . . . This book belongs in every Christian home and in the hands of every Christian parent.—R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Family Worship by Don Whitney is a priceless little volume. Whitney makes a compelling case from the Bible for the practice and illustrates it richly with historical examples. He even answers the frequently asked questions and responds to common objections. This book is persuasive, practical, and most of all, doable.—Dr. Tedd Tripp, Pastor and author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart
Family Worship surveys the biblical teaching on family worship, demonstrates how our heroes throughout church history have practiced it, and then gives fathers/husbands the simple, specific, practical how-to’s of family worship. There’s also a section dealing with common questions such as,
- What if the father is not a Christian?
- What if there is no father at home?
- What if the children are very young?
- What if there are a wide range of ages among the children?
A Discussion Guide for each of the five chapters concludes the booklet.
This 32-page booklet retails for $5.95. However, generous discounts are available for bulk purchases. At present, this just-released resource is available only through The Center for Biblical Spirituality.
Family Worship is designed for individual reading or for group study. Some churches are giving a copy of this booklet to each man in their church.
