Item Description...
Ministering to families in today's fragmented, stressed-out world is no easy task. Garland draws on years of experience in church and as a teacher of social work to offer practical, biblically based advice on promoting strong families and dealing with crises such as divorce and spousal abuse. An indispensable resource for pastors, counselors, and youth ministers!

Publishers Description
Voted a 2000 Book of the Year by the Academy of Parish Clergy In today's fragmented and frenetic world, families face all kinds of pressures. Accordingly, those ministering with families need a multifaceted, well-informed sense of both the Christian purpose of family and the complex world our families inhabit. Writing out of years of experience in the church and academy, Diana Garland here offers just such a broad and comprehensive introduction to this crucially important subject. Family Ministry begins with several chapters placing the family in its modern context, then considers the history of families and their interaction with the church. Having thoroughly contextualized the family and its concerns as they are now understood, Garland dedicates three chapters to biblical understandings of the family. The remaining ten chapters of her book are devoted to the practice of family ministry, including guidance on promoting strong families and dealing with crises such as divorce and spousal abuse. All this, based on careful research and seasoned reflection, makesFamily Ministry not only a key text for students of family ministry but also an indispensable guide and resource for pastors and those in the helping professions.

The Changing Family Structure  Mar 29, 2001
Garland writes an incredible book. She takes notice of the way that the term "family" has changed in the past 30 years and write with authority on the matter. I'm using this book in grad school and it is pheonominal. Any minister should buy this book to better serve the community of faith.
Family Ministry: A Comprehensive Guide  Mar 31, 2000
Diana Garland's newest book is a truly authoritative study of family ministry that will no doubt become required reading in seminary classes throughout the country. Dr. Garland is an intellectually stimulating writer who still manages to pepper this work with personal stories that give life to the scholarship. She lays a thorough groundwork for understaning families today as well as a foundation for understanding families from a Biblical perspective. She explains the history of the family ministry movement and tells why it must do more than simply "church-ify" the language and practices of mental health professionals. Most importantly for practitioners, she dedicates 10 chapters to the practice of family ministry. These chapters are full of creative and practical ideas to minister to families and to help families minister to others. In fact, families ministering together is a theme played throughout the book and is one that runs counter to much of our age-graded programming in churches. Dr. Garland is director of graduate social work education at Baylor and editor of a professional journal on family ministry. Her newest book will be an invaluable resource for all of us who work in this area.
