Excerpt from The Home God Meant
S the title indicates, the goal of these pages is the picturing of such a home as God would have men and women enjoy. However far short of the goal the reader, on reaching the last page, may feel that the writer has fallen, it is hoped that at least there will have been sug gested a vision of The Home God Meant, with some measure of quickening to strive toward its attainment.
The viewpoint of the book is that of the Master as he faced the home situation of his day. There were good homes then. He had been reared in one of them. It is not hard to see in his sayings many a reminiscence of the gracious home life that had sheltered his childhood and youth. But it was not so in all of the homes. Even religious leaders were sanctioning many a false standard of home relations.
Jesus met such misguided teachings by saying that it was not so in the beginning. He would show us that the way up to better homes is the way back to the beginning, back to what was in the mind of God when he made man in his own image, male and female.
