Taking a break from the recent MP3 recommendations on Christian biographies, I heartily recommend Voddie Baucham‘s sermon, The Centrality of the Home in the Evangelism and Discipleship of the Next Generation.
The official blurb:
On February 7, 2006, a group of more than 1,000 pastors and church leaders gathered for the Southern Baptists of Texas State Evangelism Conference in the Dallas Metroplex. During the second night of the conference Voddie Baucham, who had preached at the previous year’s conference, was called upon to stand in for Dr. Tim LaHaye who had become ill a few days earlier. No one was ready for what happened next.
Over the last few months, Daniel and I have both listened to this sermon multiple times. It was extremely helpful to our family as we prepared for the arrival of our daughter–and for the incredible responsibility of evangelizing and, Lord willing, discipling her. Voddie Baucham’s sermon skillfully addresses the central issues that are so often neglected as families seek to raise children who walk with God, and it is sure to convict and challenge you to deeper thinking on these issues as he carefully exposits the Scriptures.
Family Driven Faith: Doing What It Takes to Raise Sons and Daughters Who Walk with God by Voddie Baucham. The book reads very much like a compilation of his sermons, but goes much more in depth into the intricacies of what it takes to raise children for Christ.
Here is a list of links to additional sermons by Baucham.
Note: Although we do recommend this sermon, we insert a standard disclaimer that we could not agree with everything that Baucham teaches/practices in his sermon or book.
