Book Review

The Fulfilled Family by John MacArthur

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.
