As part of the restructuring of my book pages, I have now added a list specific to the topic of “Love, Marriage and Family”. This will be permanently located in the resource back pages, where it will be directly accessible from the menu bar at the top of the page.
For now, it is a simple listing of books that I believe to be worth consideration, either from my own knowledge or indirectly, from other sources that I trust. Later, I will add brief introductory notes for those titles I believe to be particularly important. For now, this is a preview.
