Using illustrations and analogies from the world of sports, The Home Team by Clint Archer presents the Christian family as a team. He highlights the one-flesh union of husband and wife as the fundamental team for God’s design of society, the family, and marriage. Facing challenges together this cohesive team must not allow division to weaken their union. As children are added, Mom and Dad play their unique and essential roles to strengthen the expanding team. The family must close ranks on opponents to God’s design, tackle obstacles, and fortify the bonds in their huddle. In the unity and synergy of teamwork each player is uniquely positioned to advance the team’s objective. The goal is to give God glory, and enjoy the blessings and joy that come with obedience.
Using sports analogies as a way to guide the players in each family toward Gods will this author drives home some wonderful biblical tools we can use to gear your toward success. Satan has an uncanny ability to be able to take the smallest crack that is left unattended in any relationship and rip it wide open till it feels unrepairable. Luckily nothing is beyond repair when you rely on God's divine plan for the family and place your trust in Him to fix what is broken. We must always have a defense system in place to deal with the attacks that will come onto your family the closer you draw to God.
Archer walks us each through preparing our defenses to protect ourselves and families, knowing our friends and enemies, the power of sexual temptation for both men and women, how to deal with singleness, and working both inside and outside the home with an emphasis on how the curse we live under impacts each of these areas. With a chapter devoted to fathers, mothers and children Archer covers topics that are important and relevant to each individual that are necessary for God-centered fulfillment in our lives.
