Publisher's Summary

It’s hard to overestimate the importance of the family, and that of fathers in particular. We’ve heard it said, “As the family goes, so goes the nation.” But it can also be said that “as the father goes, so goes the family”. Consequently, Voddie Baucham has set out to teach men how to faithfully shepherd their families.

Derived from Baucham’s monthly meetings with men in his church, Family Shepherds calls men to accountability for their God-given responsibilities in their homes. Baucham’s clear style and practical approach will spur men to protect their marriage, raise kingdom-minded children, value the synergy between church and home, and navigate difficult family dynamics.

Family Shepherds is a book for any husband or father looking to lead well, and it will serve as an excellent resource for churches looking to equip the men in their congregations.

This book is life changing

I had considered myself familiar and well educated with theology, but this book knocked the wind out of me and left me staggering. It brought me to tears at several points and painted a picture of God's design in a way I hadn't yet heard. It was so simple, but I had missed it, and I needed this. I needed to learn about family; God's design for it, his message through it, and my place in it. It wasn't accusatory, but it hit deep. Well done. Good narrator.

Good overall message

While I don’t agree with everything he said in the book I think the overall message is much needed. Fathers should take responsibility. That includes leading their family and discipling them. Discipleship should primarily come from the parents and fathers need to step up in that role. That part is a needed message.

Another exceptional work by Voddie

Families are the institution God uses to conquer the world for Christ. Voddie continues to equip and direct men to do this crucial task and thus continues to be a significant blessing to the church. Every man should read this book.
