Raising Children God's Way, by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
When the light of the gospel enters the soul it brings with it a supernatural power that radically transforms the whole of life. This change is perhaps no more clearly seen than in the relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children. Our age has witnessed an almost total collapse of the family unit, and in many places the majority of children are now being raised in 'broken homes'. Our society presents Christian parents and children with a unique opportunity of bearing witness to God's love by just being different. Few things are more powerful than a Christian family in which the true relationship between parents and children is clearly seen. This may be one of the ways in which God will bringing many to a knowledge of the truth.

What The Bible Says About Parenting, by John MacArthur
Parents today seek answers from child experts, self-help books, or equally confused friends. But even the experts portray modern-day childrearing as a minefield strewn with psychological dangers and emotional hazards.
This is not a book on child psychology, nor is it proposing a new parenting method. It simply presents the principles of Biblical parenting with as much clarity as possible.
"I'm convinced that if Christian parents understand and apply the simple principles Scripture sets forth, they can rise above the trends of secular society and bring up their children in a way that honours Christ, in any culture and under any circumstances" - John MacArthur
Being A Christian Husband, by Colin Hamer
The Bible shows us that a key role for a man was to be a husband. Here he could find his place in the family and society, have an outlet for his energies and creativity, and bear the responsibility and authority that God had uniquely suited him for. It is a noble and worthy thing to be a Christian husband.
This book is intended to explore this role, which God created when he first brought Eve to Adam. From Adam's Edenic experience, to God's first lessons to him, their outworking in the Old Testament, and then more fully in the teaching of the New Testament, it deals with what it is to be the husband God intended for Eve's blessing, and therefore for the benefit of all married women.

'God's Design For Women' has been written for:
- Christian women who want positive biblical teaching on womanhood, including issues such as singleness, marriage, motherhood and workplace.
- Church leaders who want to encourage biblical women's ministries.
- Students and others who want a biblical perspective on modern feminism and women in ministry.
