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.

Our Christian Education committee has chosen "The Power of God at Home" to give to parents when their children are baptized. It is a wonderful book about nurturing children in the love and faithfulness of God and the important role that family has in children's spiritual development. Presenting the book after a child's baptism is the perfect opportunity to recognize what a special day this is to the child's family,as well as in the child's church family.

I look forward to using it with our congregation.

The Power of God at Home: Nurturing Our Children in Love and Grace. By J. Bradley Wigger. His book is meant "for those who hope homes can be places where children will see God's love and know it deeply. Mommy, why do we pray only when the pastor comes over for dinner?" a little girl asked when I joined her family for a Sunday meal. Wigger teaches religious education at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary and directs the seminary's Center for Congregations and Family Ministries. Linda Lee Nelson is a Lutheran pastor and theologian. She lives in Naperville, Illinois.

His wonderful book documents his quest to understand how these imaginary friends fit into the larger worlds of invisible beings.
