About-

The widespread use of Marriage and the Family has proved its value as a textbook covering biblical, sociological, and psychological perspectives on the family. Now this revised and updated edition brings a benchmark text into the twenty-first century with new material on family finances, economics, violence and abuse, premarital intimacy, human sexuality, and dating. Statistics and references have been updated, and graphics are designed for easier reading.

With more information than ever, Marriage and the Family examines the following topics from a distinctively evangelical perspective.

-The sociology of the family
-Cross-cultural and intercultural perspectives
-Dating and courtship
-Communication and conflict resolution
-Childbearing and parenting
-Divorce and remarriage
-Aging and death

Case studies, discussion questions, suggested reading, a glossary, and tables and illustrations offer important information in an accessible format for the classroom. The lifestyle approach of Marriage and the Family offers a solid biblical foundation that gives students the tools they need to make wise choices and strengthen the family in these times.
