Editorial Reviews

"If your family is not worshipping together in the home, this may be the most important book you read this year."
"What we need is precisely what Pastor Jason Helopoulos has provided: a wise, realistic, gospel-motivated (rather than guilt-driven) guide that all of us can use and put into practice. I am happy to commend it, and I am eager to see how the Lord will use it for his glory and the strengthening of families!"
"Jason Helopoulos' truly helpful book on this crucial subject is short, motivating, realistic, and practical."
"If you are looking for a good, helpful introduction to family worship, one that provides both a biblical basis for family worship as well as guidance on how to practice it in real life, then look no further. It is my hope that Jason Helopoulos' book contributes to the widespread recovery of the "neglected grace" of family worship."
"In A Neglected Grace, Jason lays out a biblical defense of family worship and provides plenty of wise and practical help for how to get started."
"Just what I needed! An encouraging refresher on family worship that reminded me of the "Why?" and gave me lots of new ideas about "How?" Also a powerful motivation and perfect guide for parents just starting this much-blessed practice, with lots of practical and realistic tips."
"Do yourself and your family a big spiritual favor and read, mark, learn and apply the contents of this splendid little book! By God's grace, it could have an impact for generations to come."

    Outstanding Encouragement for Family Worship

    After seeing this book being endorsed by Voddie Baucham and Joel Beeke I was immediately excited and eager to read it. Baucham and Beeke have been very influential in my studies on family worship and both men are truly passionate about worshiping together in the home. So, seeing their names attached to this book brought great anticipation. I must say that I was not disappointed at all.

    Jason Helopoulos is probably not a familiar name to many people, but he is a pastor at University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan, where Kevin DeYoung (who writes the forward for this book) is the head pastor. He also is a guest blogger for The Gospel Coalition and I have read his work on their site before. However, an unfamiliar name does not mean that he does not know what he is talking about. This is a short 126 page book that is loaded with encouragement and hope for all of us who struggle with regularly implementing family worship. Many books on family worship are very systematic and detailed in what should and should not take place in family worship, often leaving the reader feeling unfit to lead and like a failure anytime worship doesn't "go well." This is not one of those books. Helopoulos does have guidelines as to what is beneficial and should make up family worship, but his exhortation and charge for men to implement family worship in their homes is also saturated with grace for if and when we do fail or fall into a rut.

    Helopoulos urges his readers to remember that family worship is "nothing more than our response in the home to God's magnificent and infinite grace. And it is by that grace that we gather together with our family members to delight in His excellent goodness and eternal glory. Family worship is not something we have to do. Our right standing before God is not impacted by whether we lead our families in worship or not. Christ has already accomplished all for our salvation. Rather, family worship, like other spiritual disciplines, becomes something we want to do." Thinking like this transforms family worship into a delight instead of a duty. It should be our joy to pass down to our children what God has done for us and what He has taught us.

    The goal of Christian parents "in raising our children is not to prepare them for going out into the world as fully functioning adults. Our goal, as Christian parents, is to prepare our children for eternity! This has to be the greatest desire of any Christian parent. Everything else in our children's life and world is a distant second in importance." A Neglected Grace is a wonderful tool in the hands of Christian parents for accomplishing this purpose. I was truly blessed by this book and will definitely be reading through it multiple times in the future.

    I received a free copy of this book from Christian Focus Publications in exchange for an honest review.
