Philip Lancaster's Family Man, Family Leader is a phenomenal manifesto of the biblical role and responsibility of the Christian husband and father. Sober, systematic, and vigorously biblical, it will prove to be one of the seminal works of the movement for the biblical reformation of the family.

This is a powerful book and addresses one of our "modern" cultures biggest issues ... that of men not playing their "biblical" role in the home!

Though this book is addressed and focused at men, I would also reccomend it to women as it talks about their role in the home as well. The ability for both husband and wife to understand each-others role and "God-given" responsibilities is one of the best ways to "... dwell with them according to knowledge ..." (1Peter 3:7).

Fantastic book on a father's role as a "family man." It's a very clear, and simple read, but a good overview as to what roles and responsibilities a father has as a servant leader to his wife and kids. He purposefully emphasizes on the "leader" part of "servant-leader" and gives some helpful instruction on how authority works.

A great read that explains what a Christian man is supposed to look like and how he is supposed to think and act. I am far less screwed up after reading this book! LOL.

“You and I live at a moment of history that is simultaneously terrible and wonderful. Terrible because of the condition of the society in which we are destined to live out our lives. Wonderful because of the unprecedented opportunities to make a difference in the destiny of a nation and the world.” 7 likes
“Let's commit ourselves to act like men - not like the men of our day who are preoccupied with money, with pleasure, with human power, and with selfish and merely temporal concerns. Let us act like men of God. And let's not attempt to be strong in our own strength. Rather let us remember that, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Phil. 4:13).” 0 likes
