Of the many wounds that mark modern families the most significant is the anguish of religious loss. Even when it isn't connected with a church or synagogue, the family is always a sacred unit and today finds itself in exile, increasingly out of step with a desacralized, technological world. In such a situation, families need a dependable interpreter of this "secularization" or loss of the sacredoa role Dr. Boulton assigns to the ecumenical Christian Church. Contents: What Is Happening to the Family?; The Cults Send A Warning; A Family That Hurts Children; A Family That Hurts Wives; A Family That Hurts Husbands and Grandparents; A Family That Hurts the World; Family, Kingdom, and Church. The book proposes a new thesis regarding the sources of unease in family life today which distinguishes family more sharply from marriage than is typical in the literature.
