Raising Your Grandchildren

Cavin Harper writes for the Legacy Coalition which has been producing books for family and grandparenting for a few years now. This is the second book I’vve read by Harper and they are usually helpful. This one is a small book (100 pages) on encouraging grandparents who end up raising their grandchildren mostly because the […]

Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage in the...

Jay Adams wrote this book in 1980. At the time he was professor of practical theology at Westminster Theological Seminary. For those of us who have read Adams most of our lives, we remember books such as Competent to Counsel, and The Christian Counselor’s Manual, and a host of other books. Adams is a Reformed […]

The Divorce Dilemma

John MacArthur has taken the “Innocent Party View” of divorce and remarriage throughout his writing career. This 2009 book is no different.

It is a good synopsis of his other writings in that it is only about 175 pages and contains shorter chapters written for the layman and parents. The chapters include […]
