To achieve healthy families we must turn to the Great Physician, a "family doctor" who still makes house calls. Family Practice reveals that a strong dose of the biblical concept of covenant is as salutary for the family as for the family of God. The editor and twelve contributors explore the implications of covenant for fathers, mothers and children.
R. C. Sproul sheds light on fatherhood by describing "our strong Father," on motherhood by depicting "holy mother church," and childhood by pointing to the importance of offspring to Abraham. Elisabeth Elliot urges female readers to become Women of Titus Two. The editor, R. C. Sproul Jr., introduces the idea of covenant families, and the other contributors flesh out this biblical concept.
