The author blends spiritual narratives and biblical stories with behavioral theory to explain modern family life and its unique contributions to faith formation. This book offers hope and encouragement for people who have thought that God could not possibly bless them in their peculiar relationships or families. Using archetypes and behavior development frameworks while interpreting and retelling biblical stories, the book features both personal and traditional stories of faith, complemented by the contemporary insights of cognitive scientists, including Gardner, Eisner and others. Chapter Summary 1. Naked and Confused – Bad Parenting 101 Beginning with Adam and Eve, the process of growing realistic relationships. 2. Children in Conflict – We Barely Left the Garden Life among siblings and the challenges to be faithful in the back seat of the family car. 3.
