Building a Godly Home Vol. 2

William Gouge
In Stock

  • For years, William Gouge’s Domestical Duties has stood as the foremost Puritan treatment of Christian family life.
    Yet due to its size and antiquated expression, it has become almost unknown among current generations of believers. To help revive the usefulness of this classic book, Scott Brown and Joel R. Beeke divided Gouges work into three manageable volumes, updated the language to modern standards, and have given it the title Building a Godly Home.
    In the second volume, A Holy Vision for a Happy Marriage, we find detailed counsel about the most important relationship in the family husband and wife. Gouge carefully addresses what a fit marriage is and the proper way to enter into one. He then discusses the mutual duties married couples share in order for marriage to survive and thrive, as well as the duties specific to men and women respectively. Not only does he give detailed treatment of how these responsibilities are best expressed and too often hindered, but he also provides ample biblical motivation to set us on the right course. Christian husbands and wives will find much encouragement in this book.
