Book Review: Take Back Your Family by Jefferson Bethke

10 May 2022

In the book Take Back Your Family, author and father Jefferson Bethke invites families to be a ‘team on mission’ for God’s kingdom.

Reviewed by Katie Ryan

When I saw the cover of Take Back Your Family, the cynic in me groaned. I assumed it was another Christian book telling us what the perfect ‘godly’ family should look like – usually unrealistic and loaded with guilt. Yuck!

I was only a few pages in when I realised I was being wonderfully drawn into a conversational-style book, inviting me to go on a journey of discovery.

This book explores what a family saturated in building God’s kingdom here on earth could look like – a multigenerational team that supports, encourages and allows each other to be the best they can be.

Jefferson Bethke, a family man in his 30s, is a gifted author who, with his wife Alyssa, runs FamilyTeams.com, an online initiative equipping families to live as multigenerational teams on mission. I love this. This is what Jefferson really taps into in this book – teams on a mission.

So, no matter what your ‘family’ looks like, I cannot recommend this book enough. I know my family is going to go on the journey of living as a team on mission. May your family join the call.

Take Back Your Family is available online and at Koorong now.
