The Christ-Centered Home: Turning Your Kids into Christ-Centered Disciples by
A survey by The Barna Group found that “parents typically have no plan for the spiritual development of their children; do not consider it a priority, have little or no training in how to nurture a child’s faith, have no related standards or goals that they are seeking to satisfy, and experience no accountability for their efforts.” The results of this are tragic. Recent reports have discovered that between 75% and 85% of children who grow up in evangelical homes leave the church by their sophomore year of college.
Every day our children are bombarded by the culture and its message, yet they are not daily receiving the truth and message of Christ. Leaving the church to do that a few scant hours a week does little to combat the culture’s sway. Yet, long before God established the nation of Israel to be His chosen people, and long before He established the church to spread His glory, He established the family to be the primary means of making disciples. Is your family fulfilling that mandate?
In this must-read book for every Christian family, you will discover how the ancient Shema (Deuteronomy 6:4-9) is a blessing for all modern families trying to navigate in our present culture.
