    1. As a husband and father, it is my responsibility to lead my family in worship. I am to shepherd and teach them as one who will have to give an account. This is a duty I do not want to take lightly!Unfortunately, I haven't done a great job of this so far. The biggest reason? I didn't know how; or at least I thought I didn't know how. The reality, though, is that I just hadn't tried. The first step is the hardest.That's why I'm so grateful for this book. While there is a short section at the begin [...]


    2. If you’ve only got time to read one book on family worship, I really recommend A Neglected Grace over The Family Worship Book: A Resource Book for Family Devotions.That said, if you’re interested in the topic of how to set up family worship (or Bible time, or family devotions, or whatever you want to call it), The Family Worship Book may have some helpful ideas for you. Personally, I found the tone a little less encouraging, and the suggestions seemed more black and white and less flexible. [...]


    3. How could I have forgotten to add this book? Before attending Christ Church of Morgantown I had no clue as to how to do family worship, God just impressed upon me to do it. I got frustrated, and at times did nothing. This book gave me a great starting point. This book helped me focus and keep things simple. I try to make things complicated but Terry Johnson does a great job in explaining the how's and why's. If you are struggling on how, why, when or what to include with family worship I recomme [...]


    4. I was already convinced of the merits of family worship when I bought this book, but this book helped me learn more about it, and gave me helpful tips on how to structure the endeavor. My wife and I each have a copy, and use it almost every day. It has some beautiful hymns, psalms, creeds, confessions, catechisms and a wonderful section of Scripture to read as a call to worship. It also has a great section on prayer from the works of Isaac Watts that I found beneficial as well.


    5. I recommend this book for every Christian family. It's a how-to manual for family worship. It explains what family worship is and why it's important. It has a sample outline for family worship, sample prayers, Creeds, The Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes, and benedictions. It also includes the Children's Catechism and the Shorter Catechism, 50 Bible memory verses, 60 Psalms, and 60 hymns, plus a bunch of other great resources.


    6. A great resource for family worship. It lays out what it is and discusses the various aspects. Includes a 10 year plan of rotating between psalm and hymn, one a month. This I find rich as the author states that a family in ten years could put to memory 60 psalms and 60 hymns. I highly recommend this to all heads of house. I intend on using this tool often.


    7. Great book to get you started leading family worship. Note that you don't have to do too much at first, and the author walks you through what is essential. I'm not Presbyterian myself, so I don't agree 100% with everything in the book, but it is a solid resource for a Christian family of any denomination. Hey, get the book even if you're single and use it for your own devotionals.


    8. A solid and very help resource in understanding the why and how we should conduct family worship in the home. I really enjoyed it, especially being newer to the family worship idea. I definitely recommend it to first timers like myself. I promise you won't be disappointed.



    9. Really helpful. More of a reference than a sit-down-and-read-cover-to-cover. It has been very useful in our household


    10. My family and I have been blessed by this book. Great for anyone who's always wanted to start doing family worship at home, but didn't know how to get started.
