The Fifth Book in the Family Series
Federal thinking is foreign to the modern mind. Federal has come to mean nothing more than centralized or big. Because our federal government has become so uncovenantal, it is not surprising that the original meaning of the word is lost. But federal thinking is the backbone of historic Protestant theology, and the Church needs to recover the covenantal understanding of federal headship. Husbands are to lead their families, taking responsibility for them as covenant heads—as federal husbands.
This book is a part of Douglas Wilson's series of books on the family, which has helped many people trying to deal with the on the everyday messes that come with sinners trying to live under the same roof. This book on covenantal headship contains much practical and biblical wisdom that is never more timely than now, but which we will always need to be reminded of again and again.
What People Are Saying:
"Challenging but great book that I have read several times already. I saw it the other day in my car and I thought I need to read it again. My wife knows already when I am reading it because of the change that exerts upon me!" -Andre
"Eye opening in many respects. I find myself more reflective and aware of my covenantal responsibility as a husband and a father." -Gary
"I have read a lot of marriage books, but this one is unique. I finally have a grasp of what my role as a husband is in relation to both God and my wife." -a reader
"As a husband of 27 years and a father of six children, as well as, a serious student of the Bible, this book changed my life and my behavior towards my wife... Essentially, I learned - unforgettably from this book - that I am responsible for the condition of both my marriage and my family. If anyone is to receive blame, it is to be me." -R.
