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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
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 28, 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.
This is a joke!  Mar 20, 2006
This book is outrageous! I would like to know where "Dr." Dobson received his PhD in psychology because they obviously don't have a strong program. Either they forgot to teach him fundamentals of statistics or the basics of APA's ethical standards.

Maybe Dobson doesn't know that a correlation study does not tell you the cause of a variable, no matter what. The only studies that offer evidence that variable A causes variable B are called experiments. This means that even if same-sex partner benefits were offered to gay couples in Scandinavia before traditional families started losing popularity, the fact that both are happening does not mean that one caused the other. My favorite example to demonstrate this point is that more churches in a city are associated with a higher rate of homicide. This does not mean that Christianity causes murder. Nor does it mean that murder causes Christianity. The cause for this relationship is population, which is associated with both higher homicide rates and number of churches. There are no experiments that I've heard of that deal with this topic, therefore it is impossible to say thatthere is evidence of same-sex marriage causing societal problems.

What is more frightening, and more probable, is that Dobson knows what he is doing. I'm not an expert, but I do to remember that lying about research for personal gains is unethical. What is the personal gain he seeks? It could be religious beliefs-which should never be the sole reason for law-or it could be membership in, and donations to, his organization Focus on the Family. If the second is the case, shame on him for fooling Christians into hating a minority group, something Christians were a victim of under Roman rule.

On a side note, it is unfair to call judges "activists" for not holding up your personal beliefs. It is really a benefit that judges are not elected because it removes them from the politics of re-election. They are able to stand up for what is right instead of standing up for what will get them votes.
Interesting but a few flaws in the argument  Aug 12, 2005
a couple of questions...
1. people either loved or hated this book based on where they are coming from. You will find little middle ground. I come from one perspective and with respect to the author's opinion, I personally disagree with him. We have enough problems in today's society that blaming a group of people with an "Agenda" sounds a bit like 1930's Germany. We should be focusing more on making time for our families and less blame and judgment of others... It starts with you.

2. Why are homosexuals blamed for the decline of the institution of marriage if they aren't allowed to participate? Flawed logic. Isn't it a bit absurd to blame (and it is blame) one population for something it has no part in. If homosexuals were participating and causing an increase in the divorce rate, then the argument has validity...

3. As a tax paying citizen you are allowed to get married to another tax paying citizen as long as you are of the age of consent. This has nothing to do with religious beliefs. It is a contract in the eyes of the law. That's why the civil marriage is separated from the church marriage. If the church doesn't sanction the marriage, it has the right to choose not to, but the right is still a right.

4. Finally, The constitution protects people's right to freedom of speech, and freedom of religion - which works both ways. Religious institutions have the right accept or object to certain laws (example: Mormon's don't drink alcohol, yet it's legal under the law). BUT there is a separation of church and state for a reason. Religion does not have the right to dictate its morals and values on the population. Each individual can adhere to those morals if they choose.
review  Apr 19, 2005
How is homosexual marriage an attack on heterosexual marriage? They are not stopping heterosexual people from getting married. Has anyone noticed the divorce rate? It appears as though heterosexual couples are doing a pretty good job of destroying heterosexual marriages on their own.
