“The Great Concern: Preparation for Death,” by the Puritan Edward Pearse

While I was out of commission with COVID, RHB received another new title: “The Great Concern: Preparation for Death,” by the Puritan Edward Pearse, who himself died from tuberculosis at age 40.

Few subjects are more important than death and eternity. Pearse handles these monumental topics so biblically, experientially, and practically in every way in just eleven chapters. His closing chapter on “Death for the Believer” is worth far more than the price of the book alone.

I wish I could make this required reading for everyone, but suffice it to say that this is an extraordinary book on a very personal, critical subject.

The Importance of Family Worship

In this 2-minute video, I explain that the most important thing to do when raising children is family worship. Fathers should talk with their children about the things of God, read Scripture, and pray with their children. Through these times of Bible reading, study, and prayer, families can discuss a multitude of subjects and glimpse what God’s perspective is on each.

“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God” (Deut. 28:1-2).
