Stauffer, L. A. Family Life: A Biblical Perspective (published in 1989 by Guardian of Truth Foundation, P. O. Box 9670, Bowling Green, KY 42101; now C.E.I. Bookstore, 220 S. Marion St., Athens, AL 35611). Another workbook that would make a great component for a homeschool study by young people of the Biblical pattern for home and family living is Family Life: A Biblical Perspective by L. A. Stauffer, a faithful gospel preacher who has been a good friend of ours for many years. It is also part of the Guardian of Truth/C.E.I. Bookstore’s Truth in Life adult workbook series. There are thirteen lessons covering the subjects of love, marriage, headship, submission, child rearing, divorce, adultery, and a concluding lesson on “Ten Rules For Picking a Mate.”
Each lesson has about six pages of text and a page or page and a half of short answer questions. Harry Pickup Jr., another gospel preacher and good friend of ours who has done a lot of work with young people on the high school and college level, says: “I recommend this material; and I do it heartily. It is scriptural, sensible, and sane. It will help the married as well as the unmarried. Brother Stauffer`s comments are made within the biblical perspective. This is the best workbook on this subject.” I used this book as a foundational resource in developing a series of lessons on the home and family several years ago.
