Of the making of books about marriage and the family, there is no end. The family is in trouble today―and has been since the sin of our first parents. But the rescue of the family requires more than just good advice, helpful as that can be. It requires more than just a focus on the family. It requires that the family be brought into the church of Jesus Christ. In The Church-Friendly Family, Randy Booth and Rich Lusk set marriage and family in the context of the church, showing how putting the church first enables the family to bear a rich harvest in culture, education, missions, and more.

These series of pastoral essays are a call to see the world through Trinitarian eyes. As the great Dutch theologian, Herman Bavinck, explains:
“…the doctrine of the Trinity is of incalculable importance for the Christian religion. The entire Christian belief system, all of special revelation, stands or falls with the confession of God’s Trinity. It is the core of the Christian faith, the root of all its dogmas, the basic content of the new covenant.
With this in mind, my hope through these essays is to offer a pastoral exhortation to think Trinitarianly about the Church, Family, and Culture. These essays are not meant to be technical discussions of the Trinity, but rather practical applications grounded in the God who is Three and One.
May these essays provide the sort of theological framework for pastors and parishioners to grow into a robust Trinitarian faith.
