Description: There is a lot of talk these days about how churches need to become more ""missional"" and ""Kingdom-focused""--but what about the families that make up our churches and often reflect the surrounding culture more than the Kingdom of God? Christian families know that God has a better purpose for marriage and family but often don't have the slightest idea how to get there. And while many books on Christian marriage and family are inwardly focused on simply getting along ""better,"" this book addresses the cultural influences that have taken our focus away from God's intended purpose for marriage and family and, through analysis and practical suggestions, recalls marriages and families to the purpose for which God intended them in the first place--namely, to serve God's Kingdom as witnesses to a world desperately seeking deeper purpose and authenticity. Endorsements: ""It would be quite wrong to describe what Trevecca Okholm says in Kingdom Family as new or groundbreaking--it just seems that way. She mines our Scriptures and tradition for wisdom on marriage and the family and presents a compelling picture that is so out of step with our conventional wisdom and patterns of living. While there is a prophetic and challenging message, the author delivers this without a sharp edge or accusation, but as an invitation to a better way of life--the way of the Kingdom."" --James C. Wilhoit Scripture Press Chair of Christian Education, Wheaton College Author of Spiritual Formation as if the Church Mattered (2008) ""As a seasoned minister of children and families for over twenty years, Trevecca Okholm has faithfully cultivated the practice of practical theology leading to a genuine transformation of the family and the church. Drawing on her wide reading and experience, Okholm invites the readers to re-envision--namely, reflect, remember, recommit, and rehearse--the life of God's Kingdom intended for the families of God's people in this world. A splendid and immensely practical work."" --S. Steve Kang Professor of Educational Ministries and Interdisciplinary Studies, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Coauthor of Teaching the Faith, Forming the Faithful (2009) About the Contributor(s): Trevecca Okholm has been a professional Christian educator for nearly twenty-five years and has served as Minister to Children and Families at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach, California.
