“Voddie Baucham has captured the keys to equipping men to be a leader in their homes! This book provides a practical, biblical view to reform a man’s life to reach new heights in leading his home with the future of the kingdom in mind! I highly recommend this book to any man daring enough to step up, press in, and become the shepherd and leader of his home and to help end ‘spiritual fatherlessness’ in this passivity-saturated nation.”
—Joe White, President, Kanakuk Kamps; author, FaithTraining
“Scripture gives us a clear directive to ‘look well to the ways of our household.’ Unfortunately, for far too many Christian households, that mandate and responsibility gets relegated to anyone or anything but the precious institution known as the family itself. In this powerfully important and timely book, Dr. Baucham challenges the church to reinstate the biblical concept of father-headship of households and to establish and implement the principles of family discipleship. As a wife and mother, I celebrate the clarion call this book offers to those who want to see real revival in the nation by understanding it begins at home.”
—Janet Parshall, Host and Executive Producer, In the Market with Janet Parshall
“In seeking to develop gospel-driven family ministry, there’s an
unavoidable question that too few resources have clearly answered:
How do we develop a church culture that equips and mobilizes men? In
Family Shepherds, Voddie Baucham goes beyond surface-level
solutions that identify biblical masculinity with everything from
watching mixed-martial arts to participating in emotionally-charged
stadium events. What Voddie provides instead is a simple and
straightforward biblical vision for equipping men to embrace their
God-ordained roles as servant-leaders. This vision flows from Voddie’s commitment to articulate biblically what it
means for men to shepherd their families well.”
—Timothy Paul Jones, author, Misquoting Truth: A Guide to the Fallacies of Bart Ehrman’s Misquoting Jesus
“Rarely does a church see the husband and father as the key to shepherding his own family. Instead we have developed ministry expertise in the local church that seemingly no longer needs a man to step up and serve as the spiritual leader of his home. There are few mistakes more tragic than this one, and generations have suffered and will suffer if we do not call men to step up and serve as the spiritual leader. Family Shepherds is the primary tool that pastors and church leaders need to bridge that gap and to execute the building of the local church as God intended and has communicated in his Word.”
—Brian Doyle, Founder and President, Iron Sharpens Iron

Timothy Paul Jones addresses the fact that very few of the leadership and "exemplary" Christians in most all churches participate in any regular times of family worship practices. Baucham Jr. presses this issue and provides proven practices from the past which have long since been abandoned.
Men would do well to study this together then purchase The Family Worship Book and begin catechizing their children. The intimidation of not knowing enough will only end when we begin leading and teaching therefore learning more in the process. We cannot continue to avoid leading because we feel inadequate as we are commanded to do so. Voddie Baucham Jr. lays out a clear directive for men to do that which they are created to do, glorify God by imaging Him and leading their families to glorify Him as well.
