Editorial Reviews

Review

A timely... well-researched, solidly structured book.

(Michael LeFlem H-Ideas)

The volume is stumulating, readable, and relevant.

(Loren Marks BYU Studies)

Review

American Religions and the Family brings together specialists focusing on families in particular religious traditions who fasten on the most urgent questions. It offers a significant contribution to the field―nowhere else can you get all this in one book.

(Martin E. Marty, University of Chicago)

American religion is more diverse than ever. Its bearing on social and cultural issues, especially on issues of 'the family' is a matter of lively speculation and debate, and there is very little available and accessible literature addressing the topic with respect to the full range of American religion. This book is unique.

(R. Stephen Warner, University of Illinois at Chicago)

A timely, important, and engaging book, American Religions and the Family explores the two core and complex social institutions that most influence identity and society. Contributors consider the responses of these cultural systems to each other and to the challenging forces of modernization. The book breaks new ground by showing how modernization and responses to it influence the most fundamental human social organizations and personal identity. This terrific book will be valuable to anyone who wants to consider how Americans understand change, faith, and family.

(Steven L. Nock, Commonwealth Professor of Sociology, University of Virginia)
