About the Book

Some unique contributions of Family By the Bible™ are:
1. Instead of the traditional, hit-and-miss success of self-help Christian and secular books on managing families, this book offers a more-sure, proven approaches to creating and sustaining successful and strong families, because it draws on the infinite wisdom of God through His Scripture –the Bible.
2. Practical and proven tools and methods of the Bible are presented here to help make American families grow strong again. This is true for families all around the world as well. Strong families create strong communities, and strong communities create strong countries. And strong countries make happy and joyful societies in the world.
3. Joyful societies (as those pre-1950s) create more wholesome families, with better civility, and decency among the citizens, more peaceful pursuits for the common good, more harmony, less social costs, better emotional and relational health, and ultimately, to lesser existential threats to the 8 billion of us and our wonderful earth.
4. Elon Musk, the genius founder of Tesla Electric Car Company, and Space X company, is hoping that by relocating us to other planets like Mars, we will create more ideal societies. I humbly disagree with his notion. If anything, we, the corrupt humans, will carry forth our self-destructive thinking from the earth to the other planets, and replicate our same bad behaviors there as well! A more practical solution is to teach and train our families to learn the pre-1950s values and enjoy our lives here first! This book presents such tools.
5. If every family practices at least some of this book’s principles, we’ll have regained more pre-1950s values, and we can slash budgets for welfare, social costs, disease control, mental health, and illogical thinking which have been destroying all our fundamental institutions: religious, educational, legal, economical, and humanitarian.
