Publisher's Summary

Why do our families have so much power over us? In The Storm-Tossed Family, best-selling author Russell Moore (OnwardChristianity Today's 2016 "Book of the Year Award Winner") teaches listeners whether you are married or single, whether you long for a child or shepherding a full house, you are part of a family. 

Family is difficult because family - every family - is an echo of the gospel. Family can be the source of some of the most transcendent human joy, and family can leave us crumpled up on the side of the road. Family can make us who we are, and family can break our hearts. Why would this social arrangement have that much power, for good or for ill, over us?

Difficult to get through

I think this book would be better reading than listening to be there were too many referenced scriptures and the story didn’t flow at all to me. It was constantly getting interrupted by scripture references which you wouldn’t read necessarily if you had the physical book. I couldn’t finish the book this way.

Biblical. Honest. Encouraging.

Such a great book.... Russell Moore does such a great job of speaking the truth of God’s scripture in love as he thoughtfully walks the listener through the real life struggles and realities of family. I would recommend this to anyone who takes their Christian faith seriously and wants to have a better understanding of our experience of family in light of being a part of God’s family.

Insightful

There are many gems in this work about being a spouse and parent. Had I read it 35 years ago my wife would have had a better husband and my children a better father. I used to think that other folks couldn't do a good job giving me books. No more. Thanks to my sister Bonnie for this wonderful Christmas present.

A biblical exploration of the family

This book has been a refreshing read. The author looks at the family from the perspective of the cross reminding us what is really important.
The narrator reads this book with a lot of expression and conviction and the flow of the text is logical and profound.

Cross Centred Family Life at its Best

Such a cross centred approach to all aspects of family life. I would highly recommend this book to all Christians.
