“The power of God’s Word is seen most clearly as that Word is understood and applied to the lives of God’s people. In the Family Worship Bible Guide, we have a unique resource that offers to bring that dynamic power of the Word into our personal and family worship. For each chapter of Scripture, seasoned pastors and teachers offer brief, pointed comments that simultaneously explain the biblical text and apply it to readers’ lives and experiences. With the Spirit’s blessing, the Family Worship Bible Guide promises to be used to infuse biblical life, warmth, discussion, and power into personal and family worship. It certainly has in our family!” — Dr. Stephen Myers, associate professor of church history, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
