In this slender volume Houghton develops the case for surrendering the family planning process to God using clear, compelling examples from scripture. Accurately subtitled A Guide for Christian Couples Seeking God's Truth on Having Children, readers are led through the Bible in search for God's will. The first half of the book focuses exclusively on Old and New Testament scriptures showing God's heart for children, His plan for marriage and the nature of conception. Houghton then goes on to explore historical interpretations of the topic within the church, possible reasons for the rise in contraception, common fears, keeping God's vision and his personal testimony.
I love testimonies, so after reading the foreword by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies, I read Houghton's personal testimony near the end of the book. I wanted to know more about who this man was, and how the Lord had spoken to him about surrendering his family size. It became immediately clear that Houghton has a heart for the Lord and is deeply committed to following the will of God for his life.Read more ›
Bible verses are not twisted to suit the authors point of view. It is a short book. I re-read it every few weeks to keep motivated :)
While, my husband and I had already given our fertility over to the Lord before reading this, it did reaffirm the convictions we feel. It is also the only book on the subject that my husband actually finished reading!
Take a look- it's worth your time.
What an excellent and simple defense of the truth about family formation, for the Church.
Should be standard reading for all adults either married or considering it. I only wish I had read this book prior to getting married, so that my eyes would have been opened and if the Lord would have allowed it: my wife and I would have had children earlier. Sadly, I too was drinking the kool-aid of "reproductive rights" and also claiming belief in a sovereign God to whom "I surrendered all". What a lie!
Like the author, my eyes too were opened and I saw the truth. Highly recommend this book to all men and fathers of the Church. Step up and lead your family courageously for the Lord's sake!
Thanks again, Brother Houghton!
