Recently I was given the chance to review a book from Great Waters Press. Great Waters Press, who published the book Raising Real Men by Hal and Melanie Young, have two new books coming out Children in Church and A Cry From Egypt. I received, Children in Church: Nurturing a Heart of Worship. The book is written by Curt and Sandra Lovelace. Now, before we even start this, I will tell you I am a big believer in having your children in church with you. Only my two oldest daughters were ever in a church nursery or Sunday School. We quickly learned that we wanted them with us and that is where they stayed. All six of them have grown up in church.
OK, that having been said, I truly enjoyed this book! They clearly show through Scripture how God intended for all the congregation to meet together. A complete congregation. They do understand that not everyone will agree with children in church, but through experience I can tell you how much this has helped our family. By meeting together we have been able to discuss messages together, pray together, and grow together. So much can be learned by reading this couple's experiences.
They give plenty of examples on how to make the change if you are sure you really want to do this. If you are not fully committed to making this change you will be more apt to quit if you encounter problems. I enjoyed hearing their experiences in different churches that they visited.
I really believe this book will be helpful for parents who want their children in the service with them. Pastors and church leaders should also read this book. This is definitely a book that remain on my bookshelf.
