Item Description...
"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh" (KJV). With those twenty-two words, God announced the ordination of the family, long before He established the two other great human institutions, the church and the government. It has been the bedrock of culture in Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, South America, Australia, and even Antarctica. Given this unbroken continuity, one might begin to suspect that something mystical within human nature must be drawing the sexes together-not just for purposes of reproduction as with animals, but to satisfy an irrepressible longing for companionship, intimacy, and spiritual bonding. Indeed, how can it be doubted? Passion finds its fulfillment in the institution of marriage. In his latest book, Dr. James Dobson defends the sanctity of heterosexual marriage, presenting clearly defined reasons for it in the legal, financial, social, and emotional arenas. There are serious issues to be dealt with in culture and society, Dobson says, and Christians everywhere must rally to become a solid force now more than ever.

What happened to Dobson?  Sep 3, 2008
25 years ago, when I was raising young children, I sometimes heard parenting advice from Mr Dobson that seemed sensible, loving, and appropriate. He seemed like a good person with some helpful insights. Over the years, however, his opinions became more and more extreme and instead of offering parenting advice, he began spouting his views on Christianity (extreme right views) and morality. I quickly lost interest in what he had to say, as most of it was offensive to me. But with this book, Dobson has moved into an area that is more alarming than offensive. I cannot fathom anyone putting their name as author on a book filled with delusion and sensationalism. The content is bigoted, hateful, and deranged. Paranoia seeps between the paragraphs; I don't know what is wrong with Mr Dobson, but it is scary. I question the integrity of a publishing company that would choose to print and promote this book. Every author has the right to offer a manuscript of his choosing, but the published copies of this book are a waste of paper.

Dobson professes to be a Christian but is unaware of the love he is supposed to feel for all his fellow human beings. Why this obsession with homosexuality and why does he feel so threatened by ordinary people who want what he has? A loving and committed relationship and a sense of family. That's what people who are gay are asking for. That's it. There is no "agenda." They want to be recognized as being of equal value to everyone else. A basic human right. What is so hard about this?
well said  Aug 28, 2008
It is a must read for everyone, to better understand what is at stake with Prop #8.We must protect Marriage or our country is doomed to sink lower and lower.
Recent CA Supreme Court decision demonstrates the timeliness of this book  May 19, 2008
The recent California Supreme Court decision overturning a CA state law approved by 61% of CA voters (prop 22 - defined marriage as the legal union between one man and one woman) demonstrates the timeliness of Dr. Dobson's reitterations of basic moral principles and the need to defend them from people who want any and every behavior to be applauded by society.

Another review states that all this information can be found elsewhere on the Web. I doubt many people would bother to search it out on the web. Here's a book that puts it all in one place to be read and pondered; a book that I can give to relatives and friends to encourage critical thinking and discussion on this important issue.
This Book is Awful  Jul 6, 2007
First off, I must admit that I have not read this entire book. Honestly, I put it down in disgust after two chapters. Also, I must also say that I am biased in the sense that I am 100% in favor of gay rights. I am offended by anything that endorses discrimination based upon sexual orientation. However, that is not why I find this book to be, frankly, a joke.

I saw this book in a bookstore and decided to take a look at it. I of course had my own opinions, but I wanted to get a clearer view of why people are against homosexuality. I really hope that this book does not speak for that community at large. If this book is read without a critical eye, it is EXTREMELY deceptive. For example, it is written as a quasi-scholarly work, as if Dobson is trying to use his credentials as a Child Psychologist to make researched arguments against homosexuality that anyone can understand. However, the footnotes in this book are more like decorations than utilities. They are strangely absent in places where, in a real piece of scholarly work, they would be required. Thus, in many places, one must simply guess as to where he is getting his info and why he felt it was necessary to include.

Secondly, the book fails to adequately expound upon many of its large claims. For instance, early on, Dobson suggests that if homosexuality becomes permissible that laws regarding pedophilia would eventually be weakened. Following this, he quickly moves to another topic. The obvious question is, why? What does pedophilia have to do with homosexuality? Why will changes in laws regarding actions between two consenting adults affect laws regarding an adult and a child, who by the law can't consent to sexual acts?

Finally, there are spots in this book where it is just plain wrong. For example, Dobson states that the agenda of the homosexual community is to completely eliminate the "traditional" family. That is ludicrous. Without the "traditional" family, including, of course, heterosexual couples, implying, of course, heterosexual sex, the human population would die off. Advocating the elimination of the "traditional" family is basically then advocating extinction. Also, Dobson states that the two genders naturally fit together. Okay, this I can agree with biologically, as our anatomies clearly showcase this. However, Dobson also argues that this does not end at the biological level, but extends to the emotional and even spiritual levels. In and of itself, this is not a poor claim, but again, he must answer the question of why. He does this by saying that it is clear that this is not due to cultural or societal practices or norms, but because we were made that way by our creator. This is possibly the worst offense yet. As a trained psychologist, he must know that when one studies human thought and behavior, one can NEVER completely segregate nature and nurture. Any psych class in the world will tell you this on day one. It is an elementary part of the social sciences. Yet, he claims he knows that this is not the case in this instance, simply because one can plainly see that it isn't. This is wildly irresponsible for a person working in his field.

All in all, if I could give this book no stars, I would. It stands as a huge blemish upon the socially conservative community.
There is NO "Gay Agenda"  Mar 27, 2007
There is no such thing as the "gay agenda" that the right-wing likes to complain about so much. All gay people want to do is be able to get married, adopt kids, and live their lives without constantly being told how "evil" they are. And by the way, anyone who actually takes Dobson seriously should do a little research into the number of social-scientists and researchers who have said Dobson has misrepresented their work.
