Item Description...
Overview
A socio-economic study of the Christian family, gender relations, and sexuality.

Publishers Description
Competing answers to dilemmas involving love, sex, marriage, and family scream to us from nearly everywhere. "The Redemption of Love "reveals what the Bible has to say about these issues by applying the growing economic study of religion.
Using Genesis, Jesus, Paul, and the Song of Songs, Carrie Miles outlines a consistent description of biblical love throughout Scripture, asserting that it is the only effective solution in today's battle to save marriage and family. This book is a valuable tool for clergy and laypeople.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A thoughtful and delightful book.  Aug 24, 2006
This is probably one of the best books I've read in quite a while. The author, Carrie Miles (an Organizational Psychologist) provides insight into familiar New Testament passages by providing the reader with a new understanding of the gospel, Jesus, marriage, women, and relationships through the lens of gender economics and the impact of the "world of thorns." Every paragraph is thought provoking and just makes you want to sit and think about what you just read.

This is what is written on the back of the book and I think sums the book up well (by S. Scott Bartchy, UCLA - she uses some of his material and research:)

"I regard this....as a must read. Dr. Miles has brilliantly connected an astute analysis of the relation of the pre-industiral economics of scarcity to traditional sexual divisions of labor and gender norms in the 'fallen world of thorns' with her insightful and persuasive readings of Genesis, Song of Songs and Ephesians. Many readers will find truly eye-opening her detailed investigation of the intimate relation between human survival and the focus of marriage changing from production to consumption. And her emphasis on the here-and-now consequences of redemption in Christ for marriage and sexual relationships is both theologically sound and wonderfully practical. This book can change your life and your marriage for the better."

And she is an excellent writer and that fact alone is as much a pleasure as anything.
 
Christian equality, marriage, sexuality and economics  Apr 12, 2006
This must be one of the best books I have ever read. It has been quite some paradigm shift to me. There are lots of wonderful books on biblical equality, but none to my knowledge has had this kinds of insights into how economic forces of scarcity have affected the role of women and men ever since the Fall. This book gives a lot of hope for the future too. This is easy to read, exciting. It is economics. It is social psychology. It is bible study. It is development. It is history.
