In an age of broken homes and disintegrating family structures, John Huffman investigates the real issues at stake in the family and helps you to live in the best family that you are able to have. John takes us through the issues associated with work, spirituality, emotions, children, parenting, the extended family, divorce, sex and marriage. With chapters entitled "What Jesus can do for your family" and "Why work should be your fourth priority" the book is an enjoyable and easy read, with a much-needed message. John's advice is practical and comes with solid biblical foundations; it is precisely what is needed for the Families of the 21st Century.
