Concepts of Family Life in Modern Catholic Theology: From Vatican II Through "Christifideles Laici"
Miller's innovative study is a psychological, theological, and ethical discussion of family via Church doctrine, tradition and law. Since no official document of the Roman Church describes what a family is, Dr. Miller seeks definitions to model various forms of familial situations in the U.S and abroad. This study will furnish a new understanding of family and the problems that exist in the modern family and the modern Church. The significance of further development of family relationship through theology and spirituality will be apparent after reading Family. And this study will be useful not only to theological studies, but to those concerned with the role of the family in the Church.
