The Family By Design

All Christians are called to bear witness to Jesus and to live a life worthy of the Lord

Ryan Ward’s new book, The Family By Design, ($25.49, paperback, 9781498462037) is sound teaching in Biblical worldview, yet it’s engaging, easy to read, and practical. It’s not just a book of information – it’s a powerful book of life-transformation. It was written to guide Christians in becoming “doers of the Word” in the sphere of family life. It covers a wide range of topics – from personality to sexuality, from finances to friendship, from raising children to caring for the elderly, from singleness to marriage. This book is perfect for Bible college courses on the family, pre-marital counseling, teen and adult ministries, discipleship ministries seeking to establish new believers in a Biblical worldview, and training courses for future church leaders. It includes worldview surveys with each chapter to help each reader evaluate his or her own family through a Biblical lens. Includes an optional Culmination Project which guides the reader to evaluate the past and plan for a future of honoring God through family.

“All Christians are called to bear witness to Jesus and to live a life worthy of the Lord,” states the author. “But what does that look like in the practical parts of life – in friendship and finances, in marriage and family, at work, when dating, and when conflicts arise? New Christians need solid teaching in order to embrace and live out a Biblical worldview. This book brings God’s Word to bear on our lives that we may be transformed. When the world looks at Christians, they will be compelled by our witness to get to know Jesus. And we’ll stand before our Master to hear the words, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!’”
