In a "post-Christian" society that grows more secular by the day, Christian families find their faith challenged from all sides. Young people are especially vulnerable—researchers find that between 70 and 88% of Christian teens have walked away from the church by their second year in college. Faced with such worrisome statistics, what's a parent to do?
In Family Driven Faith, Dr. Voddie Baucham, a minister and a father himself, examines the present breakdown in the process of passing faith from parents to children. Along with analyzing the pressures of secular society, Baucham offers an insightful critique of how we "do church"—a way that lacks meaningful intergenerational connections, and puts children's spiritual growth in the hands of Sunday school teachers and youth group leaders, leaving children and young adults without the mature Christian role models they need.
Drawing especially on the precepts for multi-generational faithfulness laid out in Deuteronomy 6, Baucham offers biblically-based advice for how parents can reassert their positive influence in children's faith development. He proposes practical solutions, such as family devotional times and Christian education. He also imagines what a truly family-integrated church would look like—a place that would support parents in teaching faith to their children and offer children the guidance and relationships they need to remain true to their own faith in a secular culture.
