Restoring the Father to the Family, C. Russell Yates

This is not the kind of book you can just sail through. The material is entirely understandable, but it makes you stop and think. It will exercise your brain cells.

Wait for Me, Rebecca St. James

Wait for Me touches on the physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences of premarital sex and ways to avoid temptation. Personal stories of those who have and have not waited help to illustrate the importance of God's desire for sex to be within marriage.

The Surrendered Wife, Laura M. Doyle

“A practical guide to finding intimacy, passion, and peace with a man.” The book is not based on the Bible, but it is biblical. You can read through this one pretty quickly.

The Christian Family, Larry Christenson

For over 30 years, America's best selling book on Christian family living. It covers relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, but most of all the relationship each of us is to have with our Maker.

The Ancient Paths, Craig Hill

This little book addresses the way parents fail to bless and affirm their children at certain critical times in life. From the Old Testament, it shows the connection between identity and destiny. Hill says little about biblical roles for husbands and wives.

The Power of Femininity, Michelle M. Hammond

An exposition on the differences between men and women, and how those differences are to be celebrated. The gift of influence is central to The Power of Femininity. The subtitle to the book is “Rediscovering the Art of Being a Woman.” This lady is really sharp.

Let Me Be a Woman, Elisabeth Elliot. Also available in small print.

Author shares her observations and experiences in a number of essays on what it means to be a Christian woman, whether single, married or widowed. The idea of distinct marital roles is central to her teaching.

Different by Design, John MacArthur
