Helping Them to Choose
With the divorce in the church statistically indistinguishable from the unbelieving world, it would not be considered hyperbole to say that today's marriages in the church are a moral disaster. However, in 1859 a pastor wrote a book on home life that included instructions to Christian parents on how to help their children marry. The Reverend Samuel Philips brings his counsel to us from 1859 as a timely reminder of the wisdom of God for all family life. --from publisher description.
