Seven Biblical Truths to Transform
and Enrich Your Family Life

Donald N. Bastian


THE FAMILY TODAY – not only in society generally, but also in the church – is facing an unprecedented number of challenges and choices. Where can families turn for help in sorting through all the confusion?

God’s House Rules is a good place to start. In this book Donald N. Bastian reaches back to the matchless story of Adam and Eve and then gives couples and families simple but profound biblical truths from “house rules” written by the Apostle Paul to the early church. The book covers such topics as:

  • How Adam got his wife.
  • Submission is for everyone.
  • What God says to children (and their parents).
  • Recovering fatherhood.
  • The family at work.

Complete with deep biblical insights and compelling illustrations, God’s House Rules is sure to transform and enrich your family life.
