Convinced that the transforming, liberating truths of vocation and calling should have a deep impact on the Christian family, Veith and Moerbe show how these doctrines help to generate healthier and happier families
What does it mean to be called as a husband, a wife, a parent, a child? How does the gospel impact how we fulfill our particular calling? How does God's presence influence the struggles that families face?
Gene Veith joins forces with his daughter Mary Moerbe to explore these kinds of questions as well as the roles of calling and vocation in family life. Though we have little control over who is in our family, God has placed us with specific people for specific reasons. The authors show how our roles are distinct and important to God's plan for our lives, and how a biblical understanding enables us to move away from common dysfunctions and toward forgiveness and healing.
Writing with sensitivity and wisdom, Veith and Moerbe address the common problems facing contemporary families: the crosses, the weaknesses, and the uncertainties. They articulate a compelling paradigm for creating loving and forgiving families who maintain hope in the face of cultural pressure. An important resource for all Christians, including pastors, counselors, and those working in family ministry.
