Gospel-Centred Family

This booklet looks like another promising resource from The Good Book Company (the third of four in a series: Gospel-Centred Leadership is slated for a Spring release). Co-written by Tim Chester (co-author with Steve Timmis of Total Church), it’s chock full of gospel-centred application. Here are the table of contents:

Part One: A Gospel-Centred Family
1. Gospel-centered families
Your family can show how great it is to live under God’s reign of love.
2. Gospel-centered hopes
Knowing God is far more important than getting on in life.

Part Two: A Grace-Centred Family
3. Disciplining a parent’s heart
The biggest obstacle to good discipline is our own selfish hearts.
4. Grace for a parent’s heart
Trying to be a good parent will crush you if you don’t embrace grace.
5. Disciplining a child’s heart
Changing hearts matters more than controlling behavior.
6. Grace for a child’s heart
Don’t train your child to be a legalist.
7. Children as a gift
Make sure you enjoy your children!

Part Three: A Word-Centred Family
8. Living the word
Teach your children about God in the context of everyday life.
9. The word and other voices
Shape what younger children watch and how older children watch.
10. Praying the word
Teach children to pray by praying with them.

Part Four: A Mission-Centred Family
11. A bigger family
We belong to two families.
12. A Serving Family
Children are not the center of the world.
