Book Summary of The Storm-Tossed Family by Russell Moore


Family brings joy and heartache, beauty and brokenness. Whether we’re single or married, childless or rearing a houseful of children, our families shape and influence us, ultimately pointing us to the cross. 

The gospel shows us the importance of family in the Kingdom of God, and by imitating Christ, we learn how best to relate to our parents, our siblings, our spouses, and our children. “In the cross, we see both the horrific curse of sin, the judgment of God, and the blessing of God in saving the world (Gal. 3:13-14).” (p. 3) 

Often, our families wound us, and we, in turn, inflict pain upon others, causing us to wonder how to weather the storm. When we see our families reflected in the cross, we’ll soon realize that “the only safe harbor for a storm-tossed family is a nail-scarred home” (p. 5).

The Storm-Tossed Family looks at how the cross reshapes our home, our relationships, our attitudes, and our priorities. Entrusting Christ with our families helps us to find lasting peace in the midst of all of life’s difficulties.
