A powerful reassertion of the social and spiritual significance of marriage and the family. Many recent social theorists maintain that marriage and the nuclear family are not particularly important to the fabric of our culture. In this powerful refutation, grounded in both Christian teaching and social-science data, Stephen G. Post asserts that the bonds of marriage and family are fundamental to our social and spiritual well-being. Unique in the field for its wide treatment of relevant issues, More Lasting Unions also takes up these important topics: the special needs of children and of aging parents; adoption as an alternative way of family building; the perils of family self-indulgence and consumerism; balancing family commitments and concern for neighbors.
