A Review of Family Ministry Field Guide by Timothy Paul Jones

(Wesleyan Publishing House, 2011, 222 pages, $17.99, http://www.wesleyan.org/wph)

Of all the books on family ministry available right now, Family Ministry Field Guide is a must-have resource. Dr. Timothy Paul Jones skillfully synchronizes a biblical view of the natural family, the faith family, and a passion for bringing generations together to see the gospel of Jesus Christ passed on to children yet to be born.

Dr. Jones puts to right many of the statistical nightmares we hear about so frequently and helps us reframe our perspectives of family ministry by asking insightful questions. He properly directs our gaze toward the gospel in terms of our motivations, goals, and our views of children, youth, and their families.

Not only is this book like having a heart-to-heart with the author, but it is interlaced with excellent questions, team discussion guides, and appendices to assist in developing a family ministry that fits your church. Use this as a field-tested guide to lead you and others into a family ministry that will pass faith on for generations to come.
