He lives in Wake Forest, N.C., with his wife and partner in ministry, Judy.

Jerry Pipes and Victor Lee wrote Family to Family: Leaving a Lasting Legacy as a response to the overwhelming susceptibility of Christian families to the status quo. The status quo, according to Pipes and Lee, is adherence to one of the varying levels of dysfunction that American families experience. Their basic premise is that God has designed a purpose for individuals' lives; but that purpose's main proprietor, the family unit, has become woefully inept at directing the faith and subsequent spiritual productivity of its members. Pipes and Lee believe that the family ought to have a shared goal and purpose in life directed by a family mission statement.

The introduction of the text deals with the book's basic premise and controlling methodology: families ought to have a unified purpose and heads of households can direct that purpose through a mission statement. In chapter 1 of Family to Family, the authors go through the process of identifying the "model" healthy family.

Content Summary
Pipes and Lee, in Family to Family: Leaving a Lasting Legacy seeks to provide parents with a framework for passing a lasting Christian legacy to their children. Of course, they do so with a decidedly conservative underpinning one would expect from Southern Baptist ministers and they make no excuses for doing so. Pipes and Lee lay out a plan in six chapters where parents can pass on their faith to their children and reverse the trend of them leaving the church upon turning 18.

A Critique of Family to Family:
Leaving a Lasting Legacy

The family help book, Family to Family: Leaving a Lasting Legacy, written by Dr. Jerry Pipes and Victor Lee, was written in an effort to provide parents with the a necessary foundations of advice and principles that will aid them in passing down to their children a lasting Christian Legacy. Pipes and Lee lay out a foundational outline that is consisted in six chapters where parents can parents can pass their faith on to their children in hopes of providing them with a firm basis in their life to live on. Pipes and Lee also wrote this book in an effort to reverse the trend of children leaving the church when they are 18. Over the course of this book, beginning in Chapter 1, Healthy Families, and ending with Chapter 6, Pipes and Lee provide us with an outline that is filled with helpful tips and ideas on how a family can grow closer together in relationship to each other and reach out to the community and the world for Jesus Christ.
I actually called the Dr. Jerry Pipes Productions and, unexpectedly, spoke with Dr. Jerry Pipes himself. He and I had an awesome conversation together and shared many of the same views and thoughts about the topics he spokes on. Topics found in his books, like Family to Family. Dr. Pipes has been writing books full time for over 26 years. He has over 18 million copies in print and that number is growing. Dr. Piper has a real passion for the Family because he believes that a Christian family is a strong basis for a strong ministry.
