Family is the basic building block of our society. Unfortunately, the institution of family is crumbling, and, as happens when a building block disintegrates, our society has begun to crumble as well. While one may believe Christian families are less likely to suffer these same problems, the sad truth is that they are not.
According to married authors Lee and Karen Smith, Christian families do not look much different than families who do not know our God. As such, contemporary Christian families do not have the same positive impact on our nation as in the past.
In Restoring America One Family at a Time, the Smiths present a boot camp for Christian families. By following the Family Fortress framework, readers will gain insight into four core family functions: marriage, finances, child rearing, and household management. Based on the life and teaching of Jesus, people will learn what we are supposed to do, how we are supposed to do it, how God wants us to interact with each other, and what God promises us if we live according to his Word.
There is clearly a desire to restore the family as the foundation in our society. Restoring America One Family at a Time provides a guide for doing so.
