Many Christian families do not function very differently from those in the homes that surround them. Yet, Christians are called to daily reflect and represent the glory of God. Families are essential building blocks for this kingdom work. The family as a unit is not immune to this call. Indeed, families ought to be at the frontlines of kingdom work.
This book, a second edition, explores the biblical view of the family in a systematic way. Scipione studies the Bible in order to study the family. When God’s revealed standards are the framework for the family’s godly development, blessings overflow to individuals, future families, churches, and society.
George Scipione (PhD, Whitefield Theological Seminary) is Adjunct Professor of Biblical Counseling at the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Pittsburgh, PA, as well as Adjunct Professor of Applied Theology at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary.

“The family is the seedbed where we grow the future of the church, the nation, and the world. In this most helpful and stimulating book, Dr. Scipione gives us a concise manual to understand the Creator’s plan for family life and to live out that plan by the Redeemer’s grace.”
– Joel Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
“Scipione lays out the biblical, theological, and cross-cultural foundations for (re-)building the family God’s way, and gives practical strategies. Church leaders and families, take up and read!”
