“The Family Project” by Glenn T Stanton and Leon C. Wirth is an encouraging book for families. It encourages us to remember that we were made in God’s image and that He loves us so very much. It encourages husbands and wives to stay together, and think of the family as a whole, and not just their own feelings.
The authors also encourage mothers and fathers to be role-models for their children, teaching them that no matter if we are male or female, each has his/her important gifts and uniqueness that the other does not have. God made both sexes for a special purpose (other than procreation) and that both are fundamentally important for each other and society.
Interesting, too, the authors discuss the financial benefits of marriage, not only to the family, but to the nation, and how the decreasing number of children being born can spell economic challenges if not a disaster.
This is a great book for a small group study or other discussion. I also enjoyed the links for classic art that the authors included. I must admit that for some reason, I had a hard time getting into the book, but it was certainly time well spent. Also, if you are looking for politically correctness, go somewhere else. If you are seeking Biblical correctness, this is a worthwhile read.
