This is a great book to give as a gift to someone getting married or starting a family.
MacArthur defines the family roles using scripture, mostly from Ephesians 5 - 6. There are five chapters:
- The Family - mutual submission
- The Wife - submission
- The Husband - love
- The Children - obedience
- The Parent's - nurture and admonition
This is a short book, only 125 pages, and a quick read. MacArthur covers the material in enough detail to emphasize each member's role in the family structure. He also provides footnotes to other resources for further information.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about the biblical role of the family and its members.
