Just finished

I just finished reading this book by Dr. Voddie Baucham, Jr., called Family Driven Faith. I was convicted, enlightened but also a little disgruntled with the book. I agree with mostly everything he had to say, mostly because he certainly covers the Biblical basis for his arguments.

Some of what he covers in this book includes:
  • Amount of time families pour into sports vs. church and family life
  • Biblical worldview and why it is important
  • Multigenerational faith—passing down Christianity
  • Priority of good marriages
  • Parents being the main teachers of their children
  • Homeschooling
  • Biblical manhood and womanhood
  • Stay-at-home moms—importance of motherhood
  • Failure of modern day youth ministry
  • Emerging Church
  • Family Integrated Churches
  • Qualifications of a man to be in ministry

I would encourage all of you to get your hands on a copy to read. Dads, I especially recommend this for you, and begin to implement some of his ideas.

Let me know if you decide to get it and read it, I would love to start a dialouge about it.

Blessings, Dean
