What this book does is give you vision to keep God and his Gospel a focal point of the life of your family. The book is very insightful, practical and faith building.
The book is appropriately named because family worship has been neglected in our day and it is a grace from God to benefit us and our families.
I encourage all parents to read this book, but I encourage dads specifically to read this and ask The Lord how He wants them to lead through this in their homes.
I found this book convicting and recommend it.

The author includes some good testimonies and stories from families who have made family worship a regular practice. I also appreciated the very pastoral approach to encouraging families who are trying to begin this practice in their home. Helopoulos advises starting slow, small and keeping it simple and short. And when the inevitable days come where it gets missed, rather than feeling like a failure, he encourages families to just pick it right back up instead of beating themselves up. It is first and foremost grace after all, which means it is primarily a gift God gives to families, not a duty he demands of them. Yes, family worship is both commanded and exampled in Scripture, but so is Baptism, Communion, corporate worship, and loving your spouse and children, and the commands for these other things are only properly obeyed when they themselves are seen as gracious gifts from the hands of a loving Father, and when we do them out of love and joy, delighting in them, not chafing under them.
I highly recommend this book to all families and to pastors looking to recover this once common Christian practice.
I am happy to recommend this book to the countless fathers and mothers who either have not started family worship or have become disappointed in their attempts. This book is a great reminder and encouragement for me as I repeatedly fail to incorporate family worship on a consistent basis in our home. I appreciate how Helopoulos reiterates several times that family worship is a means of grace and not a burden on our backs. No one would doubt that family worship is vital to the spiritual life of the family and especially to the next generation. However, we often fail may it be due to lack of time, resources, or determination. Nevertheless, Helopoulos encourages parents, especially fathers, to not give up on family worship as a precious means of grace to experience a deeper spiritual life together as a family unit.
