The Most Important Place on Earth

What a Christian Home Looks Like and How to Build One

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


It all starts at home.

Newly revised and updated, The Most Important Place on Earth is Robert Wolgemuth’s inspiring and practical book for those looking for a strong foundation for their home. So what’s so great about a Christian home? There you will find redemption, forgiveness, hope, laughter, and genuine happiness. There you will also find discipline, purpose, and grace. Lots of grace.

Many people did not grow up in a Christian home, and many more do not consider their childhood experience a good model. The Most Important Place on Earth covers eight answers to the question, “What does a Christian home look like?” It is filled with stories and useful ideas that will convince any reader that a Christian home is not an elusive stereotype. It is something that really can be achieved. And it is something worth having. You’ll see.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 30, 2004 – In this book about the essential ingredients of a Christian home, Wolgemuth states that readers should use the guide as "a cafeteria in printed form... there will only be a few things that you'll choose at a time"; however, he seems to view virtually all of his advice as non-negotiable. Most of his ideas, such as treating every member of the family lovingly and finding ways to pray and worship together often, are thoughtfully articulated, good reminders. However, when Wolgemuth makes a troubling and poorly supported argument in favor of spanking (he bases his claim that spanking is effective on an unscientific poll conducted on a conservative Web site), he loses some credibility. Some readers may be uneasy about his use of Ephesians to argue that family relationships are hierarchical God first, then Dad and Mom and finally the children. In a book that mostly encourages gentle parenting, these admonitions are glaring. Finally, readers are likely to struggle with Wolgemuth's persistent idealization of his own family. While he includes a few examples of personal failures, his anecdotes often feel boastful. This, as well as his and his wife's routinely judgmental responses to other families, adds an ungracious element to an otherwise helpful book.
