Product Description

Recognizing the inadequacy of current family values rhetoric, ethicist Max L. Stackhouse proposes a covenantal ethic of the family that accounts for the changing landscape of our homes and our workplaces. His brilliant analysis of how religious images of the family impact culture, the Protestant notion of covenated marriage in relation to economic structures, and the role of state welfare policies on the development of children constitutes a crucial turning point in the debate over the American family.

Publisher's Description

Ethicist Max Stackhouse challenges libertarian and liberationist arguments that distort the nature and character of love, sexuality, and commitment. He seeks to recover a covenantal ethic, which would recapture the value of strong family relationships.

The Family, Culture, and Religion series offers informed and responsible analyses of the state of the American family from a religious perspective and provides practical assistance for the family's revitalization.
