Bound for Glory: God's Promise for Your Family
Bound for Glory: God's Promise for Your Family by R.C. Sproul, Jr.
“There is a battle, a critical front on the broader culture war, over the nature of the family.” (From Chapter 1)
And this battle is tearing American families apart. Divorce is all too common, and even homes that stay together are often nothing more than a collection of individuals sharing the same roof. What’s worse is that even in the church the family is being torn apart as age- and gender-specific programs break up time together. R. C. Sproul, Jr., decries the alarming state of the family in our time; he calls Christians to look to the Word of God to see how we can be bound together as families and as the church through a biblical understanding of the covenant.
Bound for Glory begins with a conversation between father and son, R. C. Sproul, Senior and Junior, about the importance of leading families in a covenantal relationship with God. R. C. Sproul, Jr., then discusses the implications of this covenantal relationship for husbands, wives, children, and the church family. He speaks especially to men as the leaders in their households, encouraging them to make God’s Word known in their families, to help their wives and children grow in godliness, and to take responsibility for the testimony of their family to others. The book ends with another conversation between father and son about the benefits of homeschooling and the role that parents should play in their child’s education. Bound for Glory will help you and your family be bound together as a covenantal family for the glory of God.
