Rather, the goal of biblical family teaching is to equip parents to develop a family culture where all, young and old, are shaped by the gospel and grow in the knowledge of Christ and his grace.
Through twelve concise chapters and specially formulated questions for parents, this book challenges us to evaluate our desires and priorities for our children in light of God's desires and priorities for our lives.
This guide will show you how the Gospel shapes every aspect of your family life.

Our lives matter. And our life is made up of essential spheres. The serious Christian will seek to honor God in these areas with special care and rigor. The Gospel-Centered series is a set of guides that will be of tremendous help to individuals and churches seeking to bring the essential areas of their lives under the scrutiny of God and his Word in a balanced as well as practical perspective.
- Nathan Lambert, co-founder and leader at Fireplace Church (Paris) and author of the book God is...
As a pastor, I observe that most of the problems of human beings (including myself) are due to a misunderstanding of authority. Since the fall, authority has always been misused and misunderstood. But the message of the Gospel changes everything. With these three books, Tim Chester makes us meditate (through his reflections, but also through the questions he asks) on the links between authority and the Gospel in marital, family and professional circles. What makes these three books unique is that the author does not use the Bible as a cookbook but as the book of God's great story. And he asks the question, "How does God's big story play into our little personal stories?". Put another way: "How should the Gospel revolutionize our daily lives?
- Jonathan Meyer, disciple of Jesus, pastor of the Église évangélique Action Biblique de la Servette (Geneva)
Are you a parent? This book is a must! Every page is full of practical advice and grace-based encouragement.
