Rick Shrader‘s Review:

I read this new but short book (2017, just 41 pages) while researching material on grandparenting.  I have watched Alistair Begg’s career from afar, being distantly knowledgable of Charlotte Baptist Chapel in Edinburgh where Begg once served as associate pastor.  This book was probably a printed sermon Begg preached from Ephesians on the family.  It is good and solid teaching about husbands and wives.  These sources sometimes supply good information for all generations of the family.  Begg includes a number of quotes from other authors as well.  This description by E.F. Brown was taken from Wm. Barclay on Titus chapter 2: “The greatest need was godly grandmothers ‘who have lived out the principles of the book, who have reared their families, who have known a measure of success, having faced the challenges and the disappointments and the failures, and who then are able to provide the instruction necessary for young women living in a confused culture and looking for clarity from the Bible.’”  Begg also adds, “Paul is speaking, obviously, of older women and their special ministry.  These women have the advantage of their years of experience.  They have the opportunity to offer the value of their accumulated years to the younger mothers, who are establishing their homes for the first time.” This is what I was looking for.
