Definitions of gender, marriage, and family are evolving almost daily. Surveys of younger generations show much greater acceptance of unbiblical norms. Part of the problem is that relatively few people know and understand what the Bible says, from cover to cover, about these foundational aspects of society. Read what the Bible has to say about the family from this biblical counseling expert.
Dr. George Scipione holds a doctorate in biblical counseling and has been involved with counseling for half a century. As the director of the Institute for Biblical Counseling and Discipleship (IBCD) in San Diego, he developed the program that IBCD uses to train pastors and laymen and has taught those classes on five continents.
Scipione has forty-four years of pastoral experience in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. For the last decade, he has directed the Biblical Counseling Institute of the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Eileen, have been married since 1972 and have five children and two grandchildren.
What makes this book unique is its covenantal perspective as it deals comprehensively with what God's Word says about the family.
-James Newheiser, Director of Counseling, 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!
-Samuel Ling, President, China Horizon, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology, International Theological Seminary
Scipione fills his book with personal anecdotes; reading the book is almost as good as hearing him teach.
