Beeke, Joel R.
An enriching companion to Terry L. Johnson’s popular Family Worship Book
The practice of family worship has been a foundation stone of faith for many families across many generations. In his book The Family Worship Book, Terry L. Johnson aided families to have meaningful times of devotion together. In this supplement to The Family Worship Book Terry L. Johnson seeks to strengthen, clarify and enrich those devotions.
He begins by looking at the godly home, which provides the vital context in which family worship occurs. Then the biblical and theological arguments for daily family worship in are examined drawing from the Old and New Testaments as well as the classic authors.
Once the case for family worship has been made, Johnson then moves on to develop the elements or practices of which family worship consists, as well as helpful tips for establishing the discipline practice of family worship. Finally, he discusses catechizing. Together, this monogram provides a feast of classic Reformed insight.
Terry Johnson is the senior minister of the Independent Presbyterian Church in Savannah, Georgia, which he has served since 1987.
