Summary: Sacred Mattersexplores the multi-disciplinary literature about the role of religion in family life and provides new research and a new theory about ways various aspects of the sacred are helpful and harmful. The authors hope that their new conceptual framework will stimulate new research and encourage the creation of new intervention programs designed to help families. Sacred Mattersfeatures:

  • An expansion in theory and research about the role of forgiveness, sacrifice, prayer, and sanctification in family life.
  • The integration of studies and issues from psychology, sociology, family studies, anthropology, and religion.

It begins with a review of the previous literature and then expands the research about sanctification to create a new general theory (or model) about ways sacred processes help andhinder families.

It will expand and enrich the reading in graduate ...show less
