“And God created man in his image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them (Genesis 1:27). The concept of family had its origin with God at the very beginning when He created man, for God had an important purpose for the family to fulfill. Indeed, He will use the family of God—the church—to defeat His enemy, Satan. And hence, God’s enemy is pouring out his fury to destroy the family.

Thank God, through the redemptive work of Christ, we Christians are to have our families restored to God’s original purpose. This short series of messages, delivered by the author before a gathering of God’s people in Washington DC beginning in September 1974, is therefore being published as a way of helping Christian believers elsewhere to see and carry out God’s purpose for the family. May the Lord bless all who read the pages of this volume.

Reviewer: R. King from Illinois  
This book should be given out in every jewelry store with each engagement and wedding ring that is purchased. It should be given to each set of parents when they find out they are pregnant with their first child and be the number one priority of each teacher in Sunday school that teaches teenagers. There is so much in this book that today's church needs.

5 of 5 God's Purpose for the Family July 24, 2014
Reviewer: Linda Ford from Taylorville, IL United States  
I just finished reading GOD's PURPOSE FOR THE FAMILY. It is the best presentation of biblical revelation for family life that I have read. Beautifully articulated and biblically backed in its presentation of God's heart for the family.  I ordered two for each of my grandsons and one for our church's Family Life Minister. The content brought to my mind Jeremiah 6:16 "This is what the Lord says: Stand by the roadways and look.  Ask about the ancient paths: Which is the way to what is good? Then take it and find rest for yourselves.  But they protest: We won't listen!"

My hope is that the readers of this book will listen.

Thank you for making this book available for American readers.  

I do wish, however, that there had been a different jacket for the book- one that might appeal more to young readers.  The cover looks old fashioned but the truths conveyed within are timeless.  Definitely counter cultural.
