Reviews - What do customers think about Family Practice: God's Prescription for a Healthy Home?
Excellent Book! Feb 11, 2008
When I began this book I was a little sceptical as to how I would like it considering there are several authors contributing. However I was pleasanly surprised at the qualtiy of it. The chapters are short enough that a busy wife and mother can still read one through in one sitting and come away enriched by it. I was encouraged, convicted and challenged by each chapter and highly recommend it.
Building Covenant Family Churches May 27, 2005
This book is a great introduction into understanding the biblical concept of the covenants and how they relate to the family. Each chapter is written by a different author, such as R.C. Sproul Jr., his father, Douglas and Nancy Wilson, Elizabeth Elliot, Franklin Sanders, Edna Gerstner, and others. The introduction by R. C. Sproul Jr., The Covenant Family is well worth the price of the book. With simplicity and clearity, he unfolds the significants of biblical covenants, what that means for families, and the duties that follow. Each chapter develops the details laid out in the introduction with short, clear, and very practical exposition. If you are just starting to read concerning families from a reformed and covenantal perspective this book will help you get started. Its message calls us away from the overly individualistic, decision oriented, consumer driven Christianity, to a view of the family that is grounded in the great covenantal redemptive acts of God. Enjoy! If you like this book then check out Eric Wallace's book Uniting Church and Home.
