Item Description...
Overview
The Power of God at Home by Bradley J. Wigger provides both a biblical model and practical suggestions for helping the entire family become aware of God's presence in everyday life. He thoughtfully reveals the powerful formative influence of family life and shows that homes are the places where some of the deepest, most important learning takes place. Wigger-- a husband, father, and professor of Christian education-- uses honest examples from his own family life that open a window to grace and encourage parents to take a second look at their own homes, their own faith, and how home and faith connect in their lives. The Power of God at Home offers a refreshing perspective on family life, revealing families as potential bearers of God's grace and blessing and telling us how we can play this role more intentionally and thoughtfully.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Theological Foundation for Being Family  Nov 14, 2005
There are numerous advice books and "how to" suggestion manuals available to parents these days. These books are bestsellers because many parents are frantically seeking assistance with their important vocation. However the question remains-are these books compatible with a Christian view of parenting and childhood? Even so-called Christian books can adopt a foundation that is theologically-misinformed. Is the bestselling "how to" wisdom built on a solid foundation?

In The Power of God at Home Brad Wigger constructs a solid biblical foundation for family life. Using the patterns of the biblical story - "the rhythms of God" - he demonstrates how the narrative of Scripture can inform the way parents and children "be family." Using what Marcus Borg would call "the macro stories of scripture" Wigger shows how family life is informed by the great tradition of faith. For example, he uses the flood, the Exodus, the exile, the kingdom, and the crucifixion as a plot to illustrate the how homes can be places of grace and forgiveness that defeats displacement.

Saying the book is theological doesn't mean that it is stuffy. Wigger's text is full of personal stories, clear prose, and heart-warming wisdom that will help parents construct a vision for what the family might be. The book isn't a simple manual offering easy, one-size-fits-all solutions - and this is its strength. In practical (but not simplistic) ways Wigger has shown how The Power of God at Home can be a reality for normal families. I read it to understand how to nurture children, but in the process I was nurtured too.
 
Great Resource!  Mar 27, 2003
Dr. Wigger avoids the temptation of academia to produce a book of depth but accessible to all, a book that will be a great inspiration to parents, and to anyone in pastoral leadership seeking to help families. He draws from his extensive reading and research as well as his own experiences as a father of two; his book has both sound 'theory' and very practical ideas for how parents can nurture their children's (and their own) faith. I look forward to using it with our congregation.
