Book Review: “Family Worship” by Donald Whitney

I had the great pleasure of reviewing Donald Whitney’s excellent little book “Family Worship” recently for Modern Reformation. In about 70 pages, Whitney addresses the topic of family worship by first showing its presence in both the Bible and church history. Then he lays out expectations for household worship while addressing common excuses for not engaging in it. He concludes the book with a few stories about how God can take our broken times of faithful family worship and make significant and lasting impacts on the lives of our children.

Here’s an excerpt:

Family worship is not only vital because it works to re-form what the world forms in us from week to week, but because, “God deserves to be worshiped daily in our homes by our families” (14). Much can be said about the formative influence of the world around us, and how Christian practices should serve to reconfigure our hearts and minds to the Kingdom agenda, but Whitney’s chief aim for readers of this book is God’s glory in our homes and our lives.
