God intends for each person to play a role in family life, the ultimate goal of which is the transformation of the individual, the home, and the society for the glory of God. In The Family, author J.R. Miller carefully addresses each member of the family, striking the perfect balance between inspiration and exhortation.
Miller says, "The married life is meant to be the happiest, fullest, purest, richest life. It is God's own ideal of completeness]].Every true-hearted husband should seek to be worthy of the wife he has already won. A true wife makes a man's life nobler, stronger, grander, by the omnipotence of her love 'turning all the forces of manhood upward and heavenward.'"
Miller also asks, "Why should not a brother make a confidante of his own sister rather than of any other? Why should not a sister look to her own brother for counsel, for protection, for advice, rather than to any other?"
