Here's What People Are Saying!
"Another book on marriage and family life? Yes, but this one is different. It is short, but not easy; practical, but also deeply realistic; honest, but also warm... A wonderfully encouraging book."
– Sinclair Furguson, Columbia, SC
"With marriage and the family under present-day pressures, it takes a wise man to think and write well about being a husband and father under God. This book reveals Dr. Witmer as just such a wise man, and makes his wisdom available to us all. Highly recommended."
– J. I. Packer, Vancouver, BC
“The Shepherd Leader at Home is both greatly encouraging and deeply convicting. It's devoid of cliche and filled with practical instruction on how to reveal the servant love of Jesus to our wives and children."
