In twenty-first century America, at a time when the family structure is crumbling, divorce rates are at an all-time high, and respect for parents is diminishing, The Godly Home serves as a balm for those seeking God's plan for the family.
With an introduction by J. Packer, this book includes topics for those passionate about families or those teaching on the characteristics of a godly family. Richard Baxter covers topics such as marriage, children, and family worship methodically and comprehensively through both hypothetical and real-life questions and concerns that arise in family dynamics. He uses arguments, objections, and frequent Scripture to help husbands, wives, and children to live godly lives. The Churches of God. The Ultimate Commentary On 1 Corinthians.

At Kobo, we try to ensure that published reviews do not contain rude or profane language, spoilers, or any of our reviewer's personal information. In The Godly Home, Baxter follows the traditional Puritan style of writing by engaging marriage, family worship, parenting, and children by stating the biblical position, addressing the various arguments presented for and against that doctrine, followed by the important element of application. It is the application portion of this book that is of great significance for Christian families today.
Many may view the Puritan perspective on things like marriage, parenting, children, or family life in general as outdated, outmoded, and irrelevant to the accepted and promoted methods found in modern society. Such an approach should be rethought as the Puritans share much in their writings that should be applied in our families and in our relationships, thoughts that are soundly rooted in theological rich doctrine and the aforementioned practical application. In particular, despite the material from which The Godly Home is taken from being over years old, the truths shared by Baxter are timeliness since they again are rooted in the pages of Scripture.
I also appreciated the fact that Baxter addresses children, taking the time in this book to relay the importance of things such as obedience, respect, love, authority, contentment, humility, thankfulness, discipline, and godly friendships. These are all extremely important issues for children to understand especially in the current social environment they find themselves operating in on a daily basis.
