A Practical Theology of Family Worship (Williams)

SKU ‎ 9781601788856


Baxter believed that family worship is God’s will, a conviction that profoundly shaped and motivated his pastoral ministry in Kidderminster. It is said that, at the beginning of his ministry, hardly one family to a street honored God in family worship; by the end of his ministry, there were streets on which every family upheld the practice.


In A Practical Theology of Family Worship, Jonathan Williams examines Baxter’s context, the encouragements he gave for family worship, and his family-equipping ministry among the congregation. This study develops our understanding of this vital spiritual discipline among the Puritans. Yet it also draws out implications for family ministry in churches today.

  • Jonathan Williams is senior pastor at Wilcrest Baptist Church in Houston, Texas. He is also the executive director of Gospel Family Ministries and author of Gospel Family: Cultivating Family Discipleship, Family Worship, and Family Missions.


  • "Any substantive work on the all-important spiritual discipline of family worship is more than welcome in our day when the vast bulk of professing Christians neglect it nearly altogether. Jonathan Williams's book adds an exciting dimension to what has already been written on this critical subject by looking at Richard Baxter's teaching on and promotion of family worship. By combining both a historical study with practical implementation through the eyes of Baxter and then adding contemporary implications for our own day, this book makes for an informative, stirring, and hopefully life-changing read for many families. I pray that thousands of husbands and fathers, together with their wives, may be persuaded to take up daily family worship as a nonnegotiable spiritual discipline in their home. Buy, read, and implement this book, and let it transform the way you do family worship, for then it will also, by the Spirit's grace, transform your family for good." -- Joel R. Beeke, president of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, author of Family Worship, and editor of Family Worship Bible Guide
