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.

"Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it...And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord," (Eph. 5:25, 6:4).
