Marriage : just a piece of paper?( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marriage - Just a Piece of Paper? goes beyond conservative-liberal battles over the state of the American family and addresses head-on the difficult question of marriage itself, weaving together scores of revealing interviews with children, adults, and well-known experts, the book poignantly captures their voices and the complexities of their loves, hopes, disappointments, and heartbreaks." "We hear from children of divorce, young African-American men teaching fatherhood skills, and young couples trying to decide whether to live together or marry. We hear from mothers, fathers, ministers, judges, and therapists. We also hear from prominent politicians and scholars, including Joseph Lieberman (U.S. senator from Connecticut), Sam Brownback (U.S. senator from Kansas), William Julius Wilson (Harvard University), Judith Wallerstein (author of The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce), David Blankenhorn (Institute for American Values), Wade Horn (National Fatherhood Initiative), Linda Waite (coauthor of The Case for Marriage), Frank Keating (governor of Oklahoma), and Judith Martin (better known as "Miss Manners")." "Tied to a nationally broadcast PBS documentary narrated by Cokie Roberts, the book goes far beyond the film by providing more and fuller interviews. For anyone interested in life's most significant relationship, Marriage - Just a Piece of Paper? will prove an invaluable resource."--Jacket

American religions and the family : how faith traditions cope with modernization and democracy( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religions respond to capitalism, democracy, industrialization, feminism, individualism, and the phenomenon of globalization in a variety of ways. Some religions conform to these challenges, if not capitulate to them; some critique or resist them, and some work to transform the modern societies they inhabit.In this unique collection of critical essays, scholars of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Native American thought explore the tension between modernization and the family, sexuality, and marriage traditions of major religions in America. Contributors examine how various belief systems have confronted changing attitudes regarding the meaning and purpose of sex, the definition of marriage, the responsibility of fathers, and the status of children. They also discuss how family law in America is beginning to acknowledge certain religious traditions and how comparative religious ethics can explain and evaluate diverse family customs.Studies concerning the impact of religious thought and behavior on American society have never been more timely or important. Recent global events cannot be fully understood without comprehending how belief systems function and the many ways they can be employed to the benefit and detriment of societies. Responding to this critical need, American Religions and the Family presents a comprehensive portrait of religious cultures in America and offers secular society a pathway for appreciating religious tradition

Children and childhood in world religions : primary sources and texts( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While children figure prominently in religious traditions, few books have directly explored the complex relationships between children and religion. This is the first book to examine the theme of children in major religions of the world. Each of six chapters, edited by world-class scholars, focuses on one religious tradition and includes an introduction and a selection of primary texts ranging from legal to liturgical and from the ancient to the contemporary. Through both the scholarly introductions and the primary sources, this comprehensive volume addresses a range of topics, from the sanctity of birth to a child's relationship to evil, showing that issues regarding children are central to understanding world religions and raising significant questions about our own conceptions of children today"--Publisher description
Does Christianity teach male headship? : the equal-regard marriage and its critics( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question of male headship has remained a vexing and often divisive issue in contemporary Christian thought. This insightful volume brings together both sides of the debate, proponents of the concept of an "equal-regard" marriage as well as dissenting voices who advocate male leadership within the family (and often consequently, within the church). With contributions from Mary Stewart Van Leeuwen, Carolyn Osiek, W. Robert Godfrey, Don Browning, and Mary Gallagher, the essays provide thoughtful commentary and critique, substantively engaging other opinions and contrasting views in a charitable manner
