Home. It is an elegant word, at once both simple and far-reaching. Home is a place to live in and feel comfortable, but it is much more than that.
Home is where we are nurtured, where we live, and where we love. The language of home is universal. It is where we find the eternal in the everyday.
But the home has been neglected. To millions of women today, there is nothing worse than being a “homemaker.” If only they knew the supreme value and reward of giving loved ones a place to call home! Theology of Home is a simple guide to help reorient all of us toward our true home, allowing us to think purposefully about how to make our own homes on earth better equipped to get all those living in them to the Father’s house.
Featuring more than 100 beautiful and inspiring photographs from homes around the country, profound words from the saints and other literary figures, and in-depth commentary on the theological and spiritual underpinnings of our love for home, the Theology of Home series offers readers a tour of both the home and the human heart.
Whether you are single, married, a working mother, or stay-at-home mother, this series will be your greatest help in discovering how to bring beauty, order, and vibrancy to the people and place you love most.
The Theology of Home series includes four volumes that range from the everyday, to the sea, and finally to the garden. Expressing the beauty of the physical place, Theology of Home helps to cultivate and prepare us for our eternal home.
