About the Author
J.R. Miller, D.D., was a pastor, author, and editor of the Presbyterian Board of Publication. He served as pastor in churches from Philadelphia to northern Illinois, and under his leadership every church he pastored grew to over 1,000 members in a short period of time. The title of his biography, written after his death in 1912, best sums up this godly man's life and philosophy, which was also one of his favorite phrases: “Jesus and I are friends.” --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The other thing I do NOT like, there is no index or page numbers. This looks like it was produced for electronic usage. However wrote the new version, did a poor job.
Home-Life; Religion in the Home; Home Memories. Each chapter deals with a different person in the home...one excerpt says, "In home-making each member of the family has a part, and the fullest happiness and blessedness of the home can be attained only when each one's part is faithfully fulfilled. If any one member of the family fails in love or duty, the failure mars the whole household life, just as one discordant voice in a company of singers spoils the music, though all the others sing in perfect accord." It's an amazingly awesome book and is written in 19th century poetic style, making it very enjoyable to read! I was extremely impressed, as was my husband. The wisdom within the pages of this book are priceless and what's amazing, is that it is still relevent for today! However, it does raise the bar and will challenge everyone within the family. (It really zones in on how to treat one another) It's not too demanding, but very scriptural, the same standards that are in the Word of God. It will inspire you moms, and will show you the eternal value of raising your children...it's uplifting and made me (as a mom) feel like I'm doing a more worthy job than leading a corporation,
or being the Queen of England! I only wish I had read this book 15 years earlier, when my kids were very little.
