Product Description

We all know what families look like when they're broken. But how were they meant to look? A complement to Focus on the Family's 13-week The Family Project curriculum, this book by Stanton and Wirth stands alone and delves more deeply into the subject areas of the study. It provides a solid exploration of God's design for the family and offers down-to-earth helps for living out that design in your own family.

    Clyde was just a few weeks old when Focus On The Family's documentary Irreplaceable came out in theaters, which was a prequel to The Family Project small group curricuum that was released this summer. Needless to say, we didn't make it to the theaters to see it since we had a brand-new baby! I was bummed, because it sounded really good, and I knew I probably wouldn't get a chance to see the full Family Project unless my church decided to do a study on it. However, recently I realized that there is a Family Project book, so I jumped at the chance to review it!

    This book is an overview of the theology of the family - God's purpose and plan for the family, specifically how family and individual members of a family, reflect God's image. I wasn't expecting such a deep theological book when I first requested this - I thought it would be more about the scientific research about the family. But even though it was different than what I was expecting, it was even better than I thought it was going to be!

    I got so much out of this book. I had never even thought about the theology behind God's plan for families, and this book made me appreciate how perfectly God has planned the family to reflect His image in the world. I especially liked the sections on intimacy and children, because these sections brought up things that I had never thought about before. I thought the book was very well thought-out and biblically sound. All of the major themes in this book were spot-on, and there was just one minor point I wasn't sure I totally agreed with.*

    There are many paintings described in the book, which you can also look up on the Family Project's website - warning, there is nudity in some of these pieces! I didn't look up all the paintings, but I really appreciated reading the descriptions of the art in the book, and I felt like it added an extra impact to the points that were being made. If you are an art enthusiast, I would say you would probably appreciate those sections of the book even more than I did!

    I would highly recommend this book to any Christian - I think this is a neglected area of theological study, and I learned so much through reading this book. It still makes me wish my church would do the Family Project small group study! You never know, maybe they will. If they do, I'm signing up!

    Note: I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for this review. This is my honest opinion.

    *The one minor point I didn't necessarily agree with was a comment about surrogacy being outside the ethical bounds of a married union - if we are talking about a type of surrogacy where the surrogate's genetic material is involved (i.e. when Hagar was a "surrogate" for Abraham and Sarah), then I would agree with that - but if we are talking about a gestational carrier carrying the biological baby of a married man and woman when the married woman is not able to carry her own child, I don't see a problem, because the baby is still conceived within the marital union. That's just my personal opinion. The comment in the book was made in passing, and was not a major point, so even if you disagree, I would say don't let it stop you from reading the book. It's definitely worth reading.
