Family-Style Devotions

Family-Style Devotions is a family devotional that centers on the life of Christ, touching most everything written about Him in the four Gospels. Each daily devotional includes questions for parents to provoke discussion with their children.

As a home-schooling dad, David Servant surveyed Christian resources that were available for family devotions and found that most seemed to focus solely on teaching ethics or life lessons, whereas he wanted to teach his children about Jesus and Scripture (which certainly includes a lot of ethics and life lessons, but also a whole lot more).

So he set myself to the task of writing a daily devotional for families that centered on the life of Christ, touching most everything written about Him in the four Gospels. It ended up being a 147-day devotional, which your family can now use each day as well. Each day there is an application and questions to provoke discussion with children. The devotional starts with a helpful introduction that contains some practical ideas on how to hold daily family devotions.

The Great Gospel Deception

He questions the modern gospel that has become so popular, but which often lacks essential truths contained in the gospel of the apostles.

About the Author

CJ grew up admiring books. His family owned a small bookstore throughout his early childhood, and he would spend weekends flipping through book after book, always sure to read the ones that looked the most interesting. Not much has changed since then, except now some of those interesting books he picks off the shelf were designed by his company!
