Marriage, Health, and the Professions: If Marriage Is Good for You, What Does This Mean for Law, Medicine, Ministry, Therapy, and Business?

Overview

Recent studies show that married men and women on average have better health, enjoy more satisfying sex, and accumulate more wealth than single adults do. If this data is true, then what is an ethically responsible way for the professions of law, medicine, therapy, business, and ministry to handle this information?

Overview

Recent studies show that married men and women on average have better health, enjoy more satisfying sex, and accumulate more wealth than single adults do. If this data is true, then what is an ethically responsible way for the professions of law, medicine, therapy, business, and ministry to handle this information? Experts from theology here team up with leading practitioners of these professions to bring theological balance to the new secular health view of marriage. Together they pursue a number of relevant and engaging problems relating to married life, including how the Christian faith should deal with arguments that justify marriage on the grounds of improved health and wealth and the issue of divorce and its effects on children.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Regarded as one of the most significant developers of contemporary Christian pastoral theology, Don Browning (emeritus, Univ. of Chicago Divinity Sch.) and his colleague-editors have assembled 14 essays through which they have constructed a very important study of the way marriage can make people and their communities more healthy. The volume's essays provide a traditional and contemporary understanding of marriage as a good, productive means to human happiness and health; a consideration of how marriage is a good not simply as a private relationship but as a social institution; and an examination of the deeper ethical, religious, and theological premises upon which marriage as a health-promoting institution ought to rest. The book is addressed specifically to students and practitioners of five professions law, medicine, ministry, therapy, and business but it may also be read profitably by anyone with a lively interest in marriage and how its religious nature may serve to benefit human community. Recommended for seminary and academic libraries as well as larger public libraries. David I. Fulton, Coll. of Saint Elizabeth, Morristown, NJ Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
