Drs. Stinson and Jones have been important in helping in the area of “family-equipping ministry.” This type of ministry means that people realize that all generations are important and that the parents have the primary role for teaching their children about God.
This book is written by seventeen people who show how to get away from ministry by age group to a family approach. Some of the contributors are Albert Mohler, David Prince, and Bryan Haynes.
About the Editors-
Randy Stinson is the president of the Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and the dean of the School of Church Ministries at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville.
Timothy Paul Jones has written several books and is a professor of leadership and church ministry at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
My thoughts- This is a book and practice that needs to be a part of every church and ministry.
I have not been in a church that has any type of good family ministry. I am sure many parents would be happy if there were classes on how to be good Christian parents. It is something I struggle with sometimes and it would be a great help to me if our church had classes that would teach me how to help my children as they grow older. I want to equip them the best I can to help them be warriors for God. My husband and I are the ones who are ultimately responsible for our children, not the schools or the church, we just need some guidance on the best way to do it.
This book is one that I will be show to my husband, because there are some great chapters for parents to read, then I will pass it on to the pastor of my church.
It is more important than ever in today’s society to strengthen our families in God and this book can help. I recommend that everyone reads this book to help strengthen the families in their churches.
