Review: Family Driven Faith

Family Driven Faith
Doing what it takes to raise sons and daughters who walk with God.
By Voddie Baucham Jr.

Family Driven Faith helps to equip Christian parents to raise Godly children in our culture.  It gives parents tools and principles to train our children to be faithful to the Lord all of their lives.  Dr. Baucham uses scripture to explain where we are as a society and how we can change our family if we have the courage and obedience to really disciple our children.

 I love this book.  I was really excited when I received this and I was definitely not disappointed.  Family Driven Faith has encouraged me so much.  I think it is so needed for Christian parents of our time (probably a generation or two back as well).  This is a book that may step on your toes, send your to your Bible, and to your knees before our Lord.  We have implemented some wonderful things in training our children including doing a catechism, which I really knew nothing about before reading Family Driven Faith.  I love how children are celebrated as blessings and not a pain or a "punishment" and the important role of parents explained.  There are even Take Action steps at the end of each chapter to get these ideas implemented in your family.

In short, I agree with Professor Don Whitney from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville: "Every Christian parent ought to read Family Driven Faith.  I've never encountered a book on famil life that compressed so much biblical teaching, provocative thinking, sound theology, and practical help in on volume." 

Family Driven Faith is published by Crossway.

I was provided a free copy of this book for the purposes of review, the opinions expressed are my own.
