Covering every issue that affects family life--marriage, parenting, sexuality, communication, social dynamics, and family life in modern society--The Family is a proven comprehensive resource for studying this most established of human institutions. The authors encourage readers to dig deep into Scripture, ever mindful of context, in order to develop a theological basis for family relationships. In considering the meaning of human relationships and family life, the Balswicks integrate a Christian perspective with insights from psychological and sociological studies to provide a standard textbook for use in college and seminary classes.
