This book is a great introduction into understanding the biblical concept of the covenants and how they relate to the family. Each chapter is written by a different author, such as R.C. Sproul Jr., his father, Douglas and Nancy Wilson, Elizabeth Elliot, Franklin Sanders, Edna Gerstner, and others. The introduction by R. C. Sproul Jr., The Covenant Family is well worth the price of the book. With simplicity and clarity, he unfolds the significance of biblical covenants, what that means for families, and the duties that follow. Each chapter develops the details laid out in the introduction with short, clear, and very practical exposition. If you are just starting to read concerning families from a reformed and covenantal perspective this book will help you get started. Its message calls us away from the overly individualistic, decision oriented, consumer driven Christianity, to a view of the family that is grounded in the great covenantal redemptive acts of God.
