Christian Living in the Home, by Jay E. Adams
While this book is predominantly a family book, it is strongly advised that every pastor, elder and even deacons read and know this book since their ministry is among and to families. It is must reading for pre-marital counseling as well as for any counseling situation pertinent to marriage and family life.
Building a strong family is a challenge in the best of times. How much more when marriage is being redefined, biblical approaches to discipline are under constant fire, and “family values” is more a campaign slogan than a personal priority of elected officials.
The family is in trouble today. Stable homes have become a quaint anomaly, rather than the norm. To check the erosion of the home and family as the basic unit of society, Jay Adams calls us to a careful understanding and application of scriptural principles.
Christians will find this volume full of practical, biblical advice on Christ-centered family living, communicating with family members, family guidance and discipline, living with an unbelieving spouse, and many other areas. Pastors, counselors, and study groups will value this work for its insight, clarity, and faithfulness to God’s Word. This best-selling title will challenge, encourage, and aid the reader in the development of a truly Christian home.
