  • Summary:

    Retelling the stories of seven different families in the Bible, the author draws on his experiences as a pastor, educator and family therapist in a variety of cultural contexts to offer insights and stimulate reflection about family life today. The cultural and historical context of these biblical families differs from our own, and patriarchal and pastoral family life of thousands of years ago can hardly be a model for today. Yet rereading thses stories can unfold new perspectives on our own experiences as human beings and our relations with those closest to us.
