Item Description...
A powerful reassertion of the social and spiritual significance of marriage and the family. Many recent social theorists maintain that marriage and the nuclear family are not particularly important to the fabric of our culture. In this powerful refutation, grounded in both Christian teaching and social-science data, Stephen G. Post asserts that the bonds of marriage and family are fundamental to our social and spiritual well-being. Unique in the field for its wide treatment of relevant issues, More Lasting Unions also takes up these important topics: the special needs of children and of aging parents; adoption as an alternative way of family building; the perils of family self-indulgence and consumerism; balancing family commitments and concern for neighbors.

Marriage Matters  Jul 16, 2001
This book looks at the institutions of marriage and the family from a combination of perspectives: the social sciences, theology and ethics. The underlining theme of this book is that the retreat away from marriage is a matter of great concern, Both from a religious and a social viewpoint, the trend to make marriage an optional extra is a dangerous and worrying development.

Post looks at the social evidence which supports the importance of marriage and family, especially in relation to the well-being of children. He also looks at marriage and family in history, and examines how religious attitudes towards the family have developed over the centuries. He then looks at how Christian theology pictures marriage and family. And he examines some special issues, like adoption and care-giving, the role of husband and wife, and the place of romance and child-rearing.

This volume is a helpful blend of the social and the theological. It shows how important marriage is both to individuals and societies, and demonstrates how the insights of faith and the social sciences complement each other.
