My good friend Keith Ferrin (@KeithFerrin) just released a new book entitled “10 Tips For Liking the Bible”. He sent me an early release and as I read through it I found it to be a powerful tool in my family ministry arsenal. Being a family pastor I look at every resource, curriculum and book with the mindset of how can this inspire, equip and/or support parents as the impress faith on their children. Keith’s recent book, and his overall heart, is all about helping parents (or any person reading this book) fall in love with God’s Word.
You see, as I work with children and youth, the more I discover the deep need for their parent(s) to support and encourage their faith at home. However, the biggest wall…in my experience…has been the parent’s lack of passion and/or knowledge when it comes to God’s Word. When parent(s) model to their children their deep appreciation for the Word…something happens. I firmly believe the Bible can completely transform a person (and family); especially for a person reading His Word to strengthen their faith in Him. Reading God’s Word is not a knowledge thing…it’s a passion thing.
With that said, Keith’s new book would be a wonderful jumping off point for spurring parents to embrace the desire to fall in love with God’s Word. With a title like “10 Tip for Liking the Bible” they will surely take the book and open it up; but once they begin reading through it they will discover simple meaningful suggestions which will invigorate a parent(s) passion for God’s Word.
