Overview

In the midst of our trials it is not unusual for us to feel as if our burden is the heaviest and to wonder if anyone else understands how we feel. The biblical record shows us that people have gone through what we go through. Families today as well as those in the distant yesterday have always dealt with dysfunctions such as hatred, jealousy, envy, abuse, adultery, incest, alcoholism, deception, murder, parental neglect, favoritism, homosexuality, financial difficulties, health and any other kinds of dysfunctions.

"Biblical Patriarchs And Their Legacy of Family Dysfunctions," is a probe into the families of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Lot, Isaac and Jacob to see how they dealt with some of those dysfunctions.

It also highlights the fact that unless some measure of deliberate or coincidental intervention occurs, family dysfunctions can continue in generational cycles.
