Does the family matter?
Our culture not only fails to value the beauty and importance of the family, but in fact often attacks it by attempting to re-define it. In today’s world, many people, including Christians, do not understand the purpose of the traditional family, and as such, fail to grasp the gravity of its decline.
The truth is, the profound blessing of God’s design hasn’t changed. Strong family life lends to emotional and social health and provides the foundation for robust faith, strong morals and humility. Preserving and protecting the family and its integrity must be a core value of our Christian faith. In order to defend it well, we must work to understand it and its divine design.
In his latest book, The Story of the Family: G.K. Chesterton on the Only State that Creates and Loves Its Own Citizens, Dale Ahlquist, President of the Society of Gilbert Keith Chesterton, brilliantly presents the wisdom of writer and theologian G. K. Chesterton—one of the greatest Christian minds of the 20th century—on the family.
At the Colson Center we work hard to provide you with the information and tools necessary to understand the world, the challenges faced by our society, and how to live out your faith and defend it well. We want to expand your understanding of your faith and of the family, and we love sharing wise and thought-provoking writing with you.
This month, we hope to help you further strengthen your Christian Worldview by adding to it the brilliance of G.K. Chesterton. For a gift of any amount, we not only want to provide you with Dale Ahlquist’s The Story of the Family, but also access to an exclusive video series developed by the author for the Colson Center.
Your gift to the Colson Center will enable us to continue providing timely and robust content and worldview training to believers everywhere.
