Book Description:

Christians are counter-cultural: our primary goal should not be to raise intelligent, successful, competent, and upright citizens, our primary concern ought to be for the good of our children's souls - and so for God's glory.

Teaching our children the Scriptures in a compelling, relevant, and holistic manner during daily family worship is one of the chief means we can achieve this. If you need help to do that - this is the series for you! It's a comprehensive guide for the entire family and particularly children between the ages of 5-12.

Using a unique Review/Read/Reflect/Request format, family worship has never been so fulfilling.

Endorsements:

"Not many who write about family worship do so from the perspective of these writers. Joel Beeke, for example, was raised in a home where family worship was practiced from the time he was born. Then he raised a family of his own "in the discipline and instruction of the Lord" through family worship. Now his grandchildren enjoy the fruit of this influence, as do the men in his church whom he has trained to lead their families in the daily worship of God in their homes. And now you and your family can profit from these decades of experience and insight through this practical and helpful volume."
--Donald S. Whitney, professor of biblical spirituality and associate dean at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY. Author of Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life, Praying the Bible, and Family Worship.

"Wonderfully written, theologically focused, pastorally sure-footed and all within the grasp of 5-12 year olds. A marvelous achievement for which parents will be ever thankful. May this series be instrumental in raising a generation of godly men and women who are biblically informed and eager to learn more of all that Scripture teaches."
--Derek W. H. Thomas, senior minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia SC

"What a brilliant aid for family devotions! Pastors Joel Beeke and Nick Thompson have found the sweet spot in this series. Both parents and children will be delighted, edified, and blessed by these books."
--Rosaria Butterfield, wife of Kent Butterfield, pastor of the First Reformed Presbyterian Church of Durham, North Carolina; and homeschooling mother and grandmother
