Many Christian families have never experienced the joys and benefits of family worship. But as Donald S. Whitney makes clear, the daily worship of God by families at home is a practice rooted in the Bible and common throughout Christian history. How can people unfamiliar with family worship lead it in their own homes? How do busy households in today's culture recover faithfulness in family worship? This practical book shows you how simple and easy it can be.
I was hoping for more information. This book went into why we should do it but I was hoping it would be more inspiration with ideas and examples. It went into read, pray, sing but the sing part seemed to say go look on the internet for song ideas. I just really didn't learn anything new. Feels like a wasted read.
- A little bit of how & a lot of why
This was ok, but again, not a good value. Maybe 3/4 of the book was about why you should have family worship. If I needed to be convinced on that, I wouldn't be into this book. The method was pretty simple, which is encouraging (since a regular family worship time is such a rarity in our culture). I just don't think it had enough helpful info in the how-to or even suggestions or tips for where to get ideas to engage your family in worship. I don't feel lost, but I don't feel as informed as I'd like to having read a book on family worship.
This book contains lots of inspiration for family worship and some helpful guidance for unique family situations. I really enjoyed the historical examples of family worship. Well worth the investment.

- Excellent read!
This is a great book to help encourage you to get started leading your family in family worship. It would also make a great gift for newlyweds or new parents.
