Lee, Irven.  Good Homes In A Wicked World (published in 1976 by Guardian of Truth Foundation, now C. E. I. Books).  Irven Lee was a gospel preacher.  This book is a series of fourteen lessons on the family dealing with marriage and the home, preparation for marriage, and meeting the responsibilities of the different roles within the home.  I believe that the material was originally presented as a series of sermons, then published as articles in a magazine, and finally compiled into a book.  Over the last fifty years, powerful influences have been eating away at the foundation of Bible principles needed for godly and good homes.  These lessons are intended to be practical and useful to every member of the family.

Chapters include discussions of marriage, the man’s place, the women’s place, the child’s place, parenthood, and divorce, along with related topics.  The Introduction concludes, “If we listen closely to these things and heed the warnings, we can have richer, fuller personal lives and happier homes in this present world and may look for the eternal reward in the afterwhile.”  I obtained my copy of this book and read it many years ago and since then have given copies to every young couple for whom I have performed their wedding ceremony.   Lee has also written Preaching in a Changing World.  His wife, Otha Lee, is the author of Mrs. Lee’s Stories About Jesus, and its companion volume Mrs. Lee’s Stories About God’s First People.
