Book review: Family Driven Faith
Labels: Christian Living, Church, Family, Question for Discussion · Posted by Walking Worthy at 08:49
To those who haven’t heard the statistics the shock level is pretty much equivalent with being woken up in the morning by a bucket of ice cold water poured over you. It forces us to ask questions. Why? What is going on? Is this what God wants? What is going wrong?
In ‘Family Driven Faith’ Voddie Baucham Jr. reveals his own study of these questions. As a father and church pastor himself he is naturally concerned by the trends. He was driven to the scriptures to try and work out if the way in which children are commonly brought up within the church today is biblical. The revelations are telling.
Voddie Baucham investigates youth ministry, family structures, the importance and centrality of worship and the duty of Christian parents in education. The conclusion is a radical challenge to depart from the norm. Why read? Well, because we all need the answer to figure out how to stop the scary trend. Because most of us are, or will be, parents. Because all of us, to some degree, have interaction with young people in the church or are ourselves young people in the church. And our beliefs and practises must be thoroughly biblical.
While this book brings together a good amount of statistics it is an easy read and won’t take long to get through. You will, however, be forced to think and question your stand on family in terms of the Bible.
“The evidence is sobering. The answer is simple. The time is now. We will either win the culture one family at a time or will continue to lose the culture one family at a time. Either way the family is the key.”
