  • Pages: 712

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Learn what great preachers from church history have to say about issues in the modern church. A Theology of the Family presents 56 authors such as Jonathan Edwards, Martin Luther, A.W. Pink, R.C. Sproul, and Charles Spurgeon. Each of them give a powerful testimony to remind the twenty-first-century church what it used to teach about family life.

Authors Scott T. Brown and Jeff Pollard have done the research to find gems of wisdom that offer insight into contemporary situations based on timeless biblical truths.

This volume is a spiritual buffet for Christian family life, a delicious smorgasbord of short selections largely drawn from treasured Reformed writers. It dishes up biblical truth, loading the table with meaty explanation, sweet comfort, and well-spiced exhortation for fathers, mothers, children, and young people.

A Weed in the Church

Discover an alternative to age segregation in the church. A Weed in the Church tackles the issue of how a culture of age segregation is harming the next generation, fragmenting the family, and dividing the church. While almost everyone involved in youth ministry agrees there is a problem, not everyone agrees on its severity nor has the same diagnosis.

Author Scott T. Brown encourages readers to recover the Biblical mandate for family discipleship. Brown argues that while Scripture defines and wholeheartedly encourages youth discipleship, the premises of modern youth ministry are at odds with biblical teaching and must be reformed. A Weed in the Church unfolds the history, nature, effect, and root problem of systematic, age-segregated youth ministry and presents helpful solutions built on Scripture.

As I have watched what has happened in most of our churches, I have become convinced that Scott Brown is far more right than wrong on this matter. I, for one, am extraordinarily grateful that he has gone to the trouble to write this book and articulate the position. May God grant that many will listen to it before our families are totally lost and with them the churches also. Our families simply must have some time when they worship and study together.

Paige Patterson, president, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

In many areas of theology, there has been a stirring in the hearts of men to subject their beliefs and practices to the tenant of sola scriptura. However, the question still remains as to whether or not we will subject our view of the church and the family to this same principle. Any hope for a genuine reformation in our time will die in its infancy if we do not allow the Scriptures to permeate and govern every aspect of our lives. A Weed in the Church . . . calls us to examine our present practices in light of the Scriptures and to make the necessary changes to bring the church and the family in conformity to them.

  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 93

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Matthew Henry is known worldwide as the author of his famous commentary on the Scriptures. But far less known in our day is the fact that Henry was an emblem of faithful fatherhood during his lifetime. Henry took his duties as a father seriously—and it showed. One observer noted that the Henry household was like unto the “gates of heaven” where he and his wife governed all family life by the Word of God. Learn from the wisdom of the past with this re-release of a classic work on God and the family. See how the family and the church can benefit from Matthew Henry’s exegetical approach with exhortation on applying the Biblical truths.

Tremendously practical volume. Henry has a knack for dispensing powerful insights in a very concise way. I recommend this work regularly to the men in my church.

—Josh Camacho, church planting resident/elder-in-training, West Hills Community Church

Matthew Henry (1662–1714) was an English commentator on the Bible and Presbyterian minister. He is best known for his Commentary on the Bible.

Family Reformation: The Legacy of Sola Scriptura in Calvin’s Geneva

  • Author: Scott T. Brown
  • Publisher: The National Center for Family Integrated Churches
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 323

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

While the doctrine of salvation was being reformed during the sixteenth century, so was marriage, manhood, womanhood, fertility, and almost every area that touches family life. John Calvin never wrote a book on the family, but he touched off a family reformation. He was the instigator of a massive restructuring of the most fundamental institution of society.

Family Reformation mines Calvin’s works to give the modern reader insights into the reformer’s teachings on family using quotes from his books, sermons, letters, and other writings. Learn how the victories of the sixteenth century in the areas of family and church life can be applied to modern day struggles by understanding this vital perspective on church history.

What a fascinating treasure-trove Family Reformation is, addressing scores of subjects that are as pertinent today as in Calvin’s own day! As always, Calvin is scriptural, practical, thorough, succinct, powerful, and honest. This may well be one of the best and most helpful marriage and family books on the market today.
