For a father who has been struggling to find ways to lead worship, trying to implement them, and failing to keep up, this book is a great encouragement. The book has some weight behind it as it is written by someone who claims to be in the same boat - struggling yet persevering. The difference between this and other family worship books is that in other books it tells you what to do, and then leaves you feeling guilty when you can't measure up. This book understands the struggle and recognizes that there isn't a cookie-cutter way of family worship and that the father must work to find what works best for the family. With that trial-and-error approach, the author is gracious in reminding us that though family worship is important, its okay to fail as long as you keep trying. He is quick to remind the reader that family worship is a grace to be experienced, not a burden to bear. His helpful chapters on the practicalities of Scripture reading, Scripture memory and singing are...
Helopoulos's book follows in the footsteps of Joel Beeke's Family Worship and Don Whitney's Family Worship. He offers many of the same scriptural foundations and the structure for family worship is the same. What Helopoulos does so wonderfully is constantly bringing the reader back to the reality that family worship is a joyous occasion that is an outflow of gratitude from a vibrant relationship with the triune God of the universe. Also, the Appendix is worth the price of the book where Helopoulos recommends several websites for hymns and psalms to be sung, catechisms and creeds to be memorized, and outlines of what a typical night of family worship may look like.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone interested in worshiping as a family at home. It is clear to me that the author has received a spiritual gift to address this among the Christian people. Even people who are struggling with religious ideas and finding a public sphere to incorporate into one's spiritual life can find comfort in moving the Lord to the front of your family life. It seems so important to me now having read this book.
