This was ok, but again, not a good value. Maybe 3/4 of the book was about why you should have family worship. If I needed to be convinced on that, I wouldn't be into this book. The method was pretty simple, which is encouraging (since a regular family worship time is such a rarity in our culture). I just don't think it had enough helpful info in the how-to or even suggestions or tips for where to get ideas to engage your family in worship. I don't feel lost, but I don't feel as informed as I'd like to having read a book on family worship.

The book succinctly lays out the reasons to have family worship and has encouraged me to start. However, as a book it lacks enough content to make it worth what I paid. If your looking for the biblical reasons to have family worship purchase the book, otherwise "read, pray, and sing" on a daily basis.

This is a great and encouraging book for anyone looking to start a family devotion. Even if you have never done one before and do not know where to begin the author lays out a very simple and understandable plan that any believer, wether new in their faith or deeply rooted, can do. Highly recommend this book for every man trying to get started in leading his family in worship.

This book gave great encouragement to me as I read through its pages. Not only does he root his argument in the Bible, as the foundation, but he builds some extremely sturdy walls with church history. Even if you just became a believer yesterday, this book will show you how you can go about leading Family Worship. If your husband is not a believer, this book will explain what to do. If you do not currently have a time of regular Family Worship, then this book is a must buy.

Great book. Every Christian family should read and follow it. You can take your kids to church, send them to a Christian school, and tell them the Gospel, but until they have a daily time in the Word and prayer with mom and dad, they will not know this is as serious as daily meals and baths (but of far greater consequence). Congratulations to Don Whitney for putting so much conviction and encouragement in so few pages and at an affordable price for everyone. Pastors should give one to every member of their congregation!

I am a local pastor and have been searching for a simple, but biblical guide to give to church members that will encourage them in beginning family worship. The search is over! Dr. Whitney was my professor at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and an elder at my local church in Kansas City. He is a man of great integrity and has a sharp, biblical mind. His ability to distill the biblical and historical evidence for the validity of family worship is fantastic. This booklet is simple to read, yet rich with theological truth and practical exhortations to begin the journey of worshipping God at home. I would highly recommend this to any Christian who wants to see a spiritual reformation at home, as well as to any pastor who wants to see his church members be obedient to Deuteronomy 6. Thanks Dr. Whitney for another profitable work that is bearing fruit in my home and in my ministry! Soli Deo Gloria!

This book is a quick and helpful read on the importance of Family Worship.

What I liked:
1.). Loved the chapter on history- found it helpful, convincing and encouraging.
2.) Appreciated the simple (yet true) explanation of what should be done in Family Worship! Read, Pray, Sing.

What I disliked:
1.). My biggest struggle with the book and what kept it from getting 4 or 5 stars was sadly the section on Family Worship in the Bible. Felt that it was very poor exegetically on numerous Scripture passages. It is the danger we all face when we go to Scripture like no for something. That something in the case of this book was family Worship. This disappointed me because instead of sticking to the verses where family worship is clearly taught the author felt compelled to bring in as many verses as possible with the result being Scripture being told they clearly or obviously treachery something that is not as clear or obvious as the author proclaims it is.

I would recommend this book, especially the chapter in history and how to do Family worship in your home! The more families engaging in Family Worship the better for all!

Sometimes less is more. This book offers a whole lot more than its few, brief pages appear to suggest.

In five short chapters the author moves from introducing to providing a biblical foundation, historical inspiration and practical instruction on how a man can guide his family in worship. This topic is significant and the methods are sweet and simple. Chapter 3, "Read, Pray, and Sing – The Elements of Family Worship,” sums up well how the reader can conduct family worship and strengthen each member in their daily devotion to God.

Throughout the book, the author quotes various Christian leaders and writings spanning two millennia. One example comes from the 19th Century preacher Charles Spurgeon. He wrote, "I agree with Matthew Henry when he says, ‘they that pray in the family do well; they that pray and read the Scriptures do better; but they that pray, and read, and sing do best of all.’ There is a completeness in that kind of family worship which is much to be desired" (Page 48).

This book is a valuable primer for fathers, husbands, or single parents who seek to lead their family in the worship of God.
