From the same author who brought you Family Worship for the Christmas Season (which I promoted here) comes another great resource for family worship which deals with the characters and themes of the Reformation in 35 daily devotions and activities for the entire family. Ray Rhodes new book should be available for purchasing by mid-September from Solid Ground Christian Books and is an excellent tool for teaching one’s family about the Reformation during the days leading up to and following Reformation Day (October 31).
I highly recommend this work and its author’s ministry to you. But don’t just take my word for it. Consider also what others are saying:
“Imagine, leading your family in daily worship in the home, reading the Scriptures, singing and praying, but simultaneously introducing them to the history, leading figures and theology of the great sixteenth-century Reformation – all this in a fresh and interesting way, in just about a quarter of an hour each day. ‘That would be great,’ you say, ‘but it would take me hours and days to put that together. I could never do it.’ Well, Ray Rhodes has done it for you in Family Worship for the Reformation Season. Use this book with joy. It will inspire, inform and instruct you and your family. The studies are simple but meaty. The Scriptures passages are helpfully chosen. And most of the lessons can be completed in fifteen minutes. Employ and be edified!” – Dr. Ligon Duncan
“Many today have called our increasingly secular age the beginning of ‘a new dark ages’. Others see our climate as a time similar to that which birthed the Reformation – a time when the light of God’s Word broke through the abiding spiritual darkness – becoming one characterized by the production and proliferation of the Scriptures. Thus, the latter was a movement from a visual-based society to a word-based society. Toward this end, Ray Rhodes provides us with a much-needed tool for our families to return to God’s Word, understand our heritage, and be equipped to perpetuate this faith to the generations to come. You have all you need in this book to teach your family how to celebrate the Reformation season!” – Pastor Jerry Marcellino
“Once common, the practice of family worship has all but disappeared among the people of God today. Recent years, however, have seen a revival of interest in and commitment to this biblical responsibility and privilege. Ray Rhodes has contributed to the recovery of this resurgence with practical books like this one. Informative and useful at any time of year, this book would be particularly timely in the weeks leading up to Reformation Day.” – Dr. Donald Whitney
“This book combines two divine blessings that are being rediscovered by a growing number of Christians in our day–our Reformation heritage and family worship. Ray Rhodes has performed a great service to families by organizing useful information about the former in ways that can be easily used in the latter. I pray that this book will be used to teach the rising generation important biblical truths through the stories of faithful men and women on whose shoulders we stand.” – Dr. Tom Ascol
“From the pen of author, pastor, conference speaker and book dealer Ray Rhodes comes yet another gem: a month of studies for the Reformation season geared for family worship. If you long to know more about this pivotal time in church history, yet you have felt intimidated by the subject matter, then get this book. You will learn, your family will learn–and you just might have a lot of fun as well.” – Dr. David W. Bailey
