Book Review: How Should Men Lead Their Families?

How Should Men Lead Their Families? by Joel Beeke is part of the 12-booklet Cultivating Biblical Godliness series published by Reformation Heritage Books.  This booklet is very short at just 29 pages and looks at how a husband and father is to reflect all three aspects of Christ's office-bearing to his family in his home.

Mr. Beeke gives detailed practical, biblical advice so that Christian men can effectively lead their families as a prophet, priest, and king in their homes.  This information will help Christian families reflect upon the values and roles found in the Word of God rather than the world.  I highly recommend it for all true believers of Christ.  As a mom of three teenage boys, I will encourage my sons to read it, and I plan to incorporate this information into our daily conversations; especially as they move into their young adult years and contemplate marriage.
