A Man as Priest in His Home
5.5 x 8.5"
The family is a husband and father’s principal ministry. What are the responsibilities of the head of the home? Of course, men are called to provide, protect, and lead their families. But how are these overarching obligations to be applied to their family's spiritual well-being? A Man as Priest in His Home is an excellent handbook for answering this question. Sam Waldron walks husbands and fathers through their biblical duties as the spiritual leaders of their families. As with the responsibilities of priests in the Old Covenant, the head of the home is called to pray, lead the family in worship, and teach and apply the Scriptures in all areas of life. Among other things, a priest is called to be a counselor, teacher, intercessor, encourager, and judge.
As the head of my home, I am deeply thankful for this practical book. It is extremely helpful. Waldron has not only provided useful direction and encouragement but has also instilled fresh zeal and motivation to take my role as husband and father more seriously. I eagerly recommend this to every Christian husband and father. May God use it to strengthen homes around the world.
