The Family Worship Book
A Resource Book for Family Devotions
Do you have difficulty arranging meaningful, God-honoring times of family worship? If you have nagging thoughts that you should do something about it, this manual is likely to help. The Family Worship Book is a collection of resources, with outlines, suggestions, songs, creeds, and numerous other helps.
When asked by men, “What can I do to bring vision to my family and win the hearts of my children?”, my first response is to urge fathers to begin the daily practice of family worship. I try to explain that no other single act will do more to reinstate fathers as the patriarchal leaders of their families, to bring peace and hope to wives, to disciple children, or to foster family unity than the regular practice of worshiping Christ as a family.
The next comment is, “I want to have family devotions, but I don’t know what to do.” This book answers the five questions I hear from mothers and fathers desperate to begin the journey:
Five Key Questions:
- What is family worship?
- Why should I do it?
- What practical tools do other families use in their family worship?
- How can I start?
- How do I make it a daily practice?
My family has enjoyed family devotions together since our marriage began, but I still benefit from The Family Worship Book because it provides, under one cover, everything I need (except my Bible) for a rich time of teaching, training, and worship.
