Family Driven Faith

This is another book which promotes the Family Integrated Church Movement (FICM).  Baucham is a national speaker for this movement.  There are many good things in this book and it would not be alarming if it only spoke of being better parents and families, and churches paying more attention to the family.  But it goes […]

A Weed In The Church

This book is a definition and defense of the Family Integrated Church Movement (FICM) and specifically an impassioned cry to eliminate all programs from the church which divide families for teaching times, including nursery, Junior Church, Sunday School, and especially youth classes.  Brown says, “The proposition of this book is that the philosophy and practice […]


This is an enjoyable and easy to use discussion book for couples.  It covers five topics in eight chapters and includes questions and answers for each section (communication, conflict, forgiveness, sexual intimacy, and money matters).

There is an audio version of this series that is, I understand, the only recording of C.S. Lewis. Lewis calls storge ‘‘affection’’ and defines it as the normal love […]
