Don Whitney has written a book we truly need. Christian parents must take the lead in recovering family worship and biblical instruction in the home. His approach is richly biblical, intensely practical; and filled with anecdotes and illustrations from both Scripture and church history. Don Whitney is a faithful teacher and a man greatly used by God to help Christians rediscover biblical Christian disciplines. 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
Solid, substantial, gospel-centered, God-glorifying resources to recommend to families to help them either begin or to strengthen their family worship.
—Dr. Ligon Duncan, Pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS
Family Worship by Don Whitney 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?
Plus, application is made to single men and women.
A Discussion Guide for each of the five chapters concludes the booklet.
Family Worship is designed for individual reading or for group study. Some churches are giving a copy of this booklet to every family in their church.
