This new series of Bible studies for the family is written for the parent in the pew. Each volume serves as an aid to fathers and mothers as they seek to lead their families in daily worship together. The lessons review the main point of the passage under consideration, offer suggested discussion points for children of a variety of ages, suggest songs to broaden the family's song repertoire, and identify items of prayer.
Geoff Gleason has been Pastor at Cliffwood Presbyterian Church, Augusta, Georgia since 2011. He and his wife, Lisa, have been blessed with eleven wonderful children.
This guide offers the head of a household a concise analysis of the day's reading from Luke that he can review in two minutes, helpful guidelines for age-appropriate discussions, a suggested psalm or hymn to sing, and a starting point for family prayer. What a help and what a blessing!

The realities of practicing family worship often make the benefits seem distant or even inaccessible. We aren't sure what to say about a passage, how to apply the text in an age-appropriate way, or even what to pray. Geoff Gleason gently and helpfully takes the reader by the hand and simplifies the practice of family worship.
Associate Pastor, University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan
The older Protestant authors frequently urge the practice of what they called "family religion," seeing it as a vital plank in God's program for the revival of vital Christianity. May we see a renewal in our day of this much neglected spiritual discipline, as Gleason guides the "little churches" that meet in homes through the Gospel of Luke.
