Dysfunctional Families in the Old Testament

​True or False: the Bible is filled with stories of picture-perfect families, ideal marriages, text-book parenting, and completely obedient children. Answer? Not even close to true! The truth is, dysfunctional families go all the way back to the Old Testament. This week on The Land and the Book, we’ll encounter some of those dysfunctional families. But better than an episode of Dr. Phil, you’ll walk away with wisdom for YOUR family. Don’t miss The Land and the Book.
