The health and vitality of the family as God's most basic institution is critical to the life, strength, and influence of the church. The importance of this simply cannot be overstated, as what shapes and defines any society is the character and faith of the family within that society. This is well understood by those who would oppose the Christian faith and explains why the biblical view of family is under such pressure. To discredit the biblical view of family is the surest way to weaken the culture-shaping influence of the Christian faith.

We believe that Christians can and should affirm that which is central to a Christian future of righteousness, and that liberty through godly transformation is the development and the empowerment of the Christian family. As Christians unite around and defend one of scripture's most basic institutions, God's kingdom is advanced, non-believing strongholds are dismantled, and multi-generational blessings, which are covenantally promised in the fifth commandment, are reclaimed.

Topics covered in this two-disc set include: an understanding of the family in the context of God's sovereignty and social design; the family's calling under the great commission; the family's history in Canada; bioethical issues, such as genetic engineering; the Law of God and civil law; and the role of the state according to the Bible.
