Chris uses the analogy of Horizons to point out that each of us has ideas of what is possible and where we are going. The scope of our horizon gives a measure of where we might be able to go. The broader the horizon the greater the potential.
Families can function at three levels of vision - or horizon.
Natural horizons describe the concepts of family that are popular in our society. Most families do not progress beyond this point of vision.
Divine horizons describe the concepts of family that God gives us in the Bible. Chris provides a comprehensive exploration of the Divine Horizons, giving insight into God’s view of family.
The Divine Horizons explores four key truths:
God Chose Family
God Takes Family Seriously
God Works with Families ..... and
God Put You in Your Family.
These chapters investigate such issues as the seriousness of our family connections, the impact of family blessings and curses and the impact of your domestic life in forming who you are.
In the final section of his book, Chris turns our attention to what he calls Faith Horizons. He reveals that even for Christians there is great scope for wonderful family blessings, if we will only step out in faith.
Spiritual Parenting is also discussed, showing that many people, other than our biological parents have a “parenting” role in our lives.
His explanation of Standing in the Gap provides practical wisdom that will help rescue families, including his excellent “Steps to Release” which have been the mainstay of his personal ministry for nearly 30 years.
Keeping Family In Balance is the final chapter, to ensure that people don’t over-emphasize family. While family needs to be rediscovered it should not be idolized or given a priority that God does not give it. Chris wisely prompts us to keep family in balance, especially while we are trying to explore it in a new way of Destiny'.
