Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! Today I speak with Don Whitney about his book Family Worship (Crossway, 2016).

Here’s the ground we cover in this conversation:

  • Don, we last spoke in September of 2015 about your book Praying the Bible. Give us an update on some of what has been keeping you busy since then. (00:35 – 01:51)
  • Next let’s get into the story behind the book. How did the idea for Family Worship get its start. (01:52 – 04:32)
  • Give us some examples of family worship that are found in the Bible. (04:33 – 10:09)
  • Next talk to us about some of the places we see family worship popping up throughout church history. (10:10 – 16:30)
  • As we’re looking to bring family worship into our homes, what are the key elements of family worship that we should be thinking about? (16:31 – 21:29)
  • If I had the technology to beam you in front of every reader as they finish the last page of Family Worship, what challenge or parting word of encouragement would you want to share with each of them? (21:30 – 24:47)
  • Don, if the listeners want to connect with you and find out more about Family Worship, where should they go on the web? (24:48 – 25:36)

About the Book:  Gathering together for worship is an indispensable part of your family’s spiritual life. It is a means for God to reveal himself to you and your loved ones in a powerful way.

This practical guide by Donald S. Whitney will prove invaluable to families—with or without children in the home—as they practice God-glorifying, Christ-exalting worship through Bible reading, prayer, and singing. Includes a discussion guide in the back for small groups.

About the Author:  Donald S. Whitney is professor of biblical spirituality and associate dean at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He has written several books related to Christian spirituality, including Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life and Praying the Bible. Don blogs regularly at BiblicalSpirituality.org.
