Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In its treatment of the theory, practice, and ecology of the new family ideal, this book addresses two questions: What is the situation of U.S. families? And what does Christianity have to say to families today? The authors, whose work is part of the Religion, Culture, and Family Project, funded by the Lily Endowment, embody diversitymale and female; liberal and conservative; Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish; evangelical and mainline. Discussions range from the massive social and cultural trends that have transformed American families through the contributions of Christianity to Western family theory to a critical dialog with feminists, family therapists, Christian pro-family advocates, and economists, ending with a practical theology of families. Because of its far-reaching and encompassing approach, this work will be a valuable addition to all public libraries and to specialized collections focusing on the family.Leroy Hommerding, Citrus Cty.

"It is rare for a just-published book to >> be >> immediately considered a potential classic in Christian theology and >> ethics >> . . >> . From Culture Wars to Common Ground is by far the most comprehensive, >> scholarly, and deep book on the family ever produced within the context of >> mainstream Protestant thought.
