Family Driven Faith by Voddie Baucham
Jason and I had the privilege of hearing Voddie Baucham speak in person at the Teach Them Diligently homeschool convention. I had heard of Voddie Baucham and had heard a few snippets of his messages recorded, but it was my first time to hear him in person. He is a powerful speaker with a convicting message about the condition of today's youth and families.
In Family Driven Faith, Voddie Baucham shares his convictions about the priority that family should be, what it takes to pass on a Biblical worldview, and the journey his family has taken to get there.
As homeschoolers, we are already moving against the cultural tide with our priority of family and the way we have chosen to educate our children. So there were quite a few things in the book that we are already doing. There were many things that we already know, already "got." But there were a few chapters that made me pause also: chapters about idols in our lives and the life of our family, chapters about family worship and making it a priority. And I especially appreciate Voccie Baucham's vision of a family-integrated church. It isn't where we are right now. But, I can definitely see where he is coming from. And it is very thought-provoking.
This one is a great read for Christian parents. It is well-written and easy to read. But, it is also convicting and thought-provoking. I plan on keeping it around as a reference and one to lend to friends asking for advice.
I give this one a five star rating and a G for good reading for anyone.
