about

Of the many wounds that mark modern families the most significant is the anguish of religious loss. Even when it isn't connected with a church or synagogue, the family is always a sacred unit and today finds itself in exile, increasingly out of step with a desacralized, technological world. In such a situation, families need a dependable interpreter of this "secularization" or loss of the sacredóa role Dr. Boulton assigns to the ecumenical Christian Church. Contents: What Is Happening to the Family?; The Cults Send A Warning; A Family That Hurts Children; A Family That Hurts Wives; A Family That Hurts Husbands and Grandparents; A Family That Hurts the World; Family, Kingdom, and Church. The book proposes a new thesis regarding the sources of unease in family life today which distinguishes family more sharply from marriage than is typical in the literature.
Wayne G. Boulton is Professor and Chair of the Religion Department at Hope College.
