Balswick, Jack . and Judith K. Balswick. The Family: A Christian Perspective on the Contemporary Home. Since 'relationality' is the primary way human beings reflect God's image, it makes sense that the Trinitarian relationship of the Godhead becomes the model of relating as a team. This is absolutely the best book I've read on family and theology.

This is a thorough, well-supported, well-researched, and wel-written textbook that crosses subject boundaries between psychology, sociology, and theology. There are useful chart break-downs of key concept which I plan to enlarge and post on the walls of my Biblical Counseling practice, I have cited this book many times in my coursework and keep it as a reference text. There are several useful summaries of modern and historical family therapy theories presented from the words of their founders and then discussed from a Biblical perspective, detailed discussions on how to deal with mobile and re-joining and blended families, and a separation of marriage and family concepts and priorities, all laid out in clear, topical, essays. I highly recommend this text to any Christian or Biblical counselor, pastor, elder, or lay-elder or family ministry officer.

I studied my 1st master degree in arts therapy a secular University. While the knowledge of the human developmental theories are good, it feels there is something missing, and a incoherent with my faith a lot of the times. This book is required for my 2nd master degree on family and marriage therapy, I was skeptic at first, as I fear it’s another book that just talks about the Bible or with poetic writing that is not easy to understand. But I was wrong. This book is informative, easy to read, and able to fill a lot of gaps that the secular readings lack. I highly recommend it for Christian therapists or therapists wannabe out there!

Excelente libro sobre la base de la familia según el plan de Dios. Tiene un profundo abordaje basado en una investigación seria y contundente sobre todos los aspectos teologicos, sociales, culturales, y sicológicos de las dinámicas familiares y como se construyen las dinámicas de las mismas basadas en el plan divino de redención, perdon, empoderamiento, intimidad y comunidad.
Lo recomiendo a educadores, pastores, padres de familia. Maravilloso

This book is a must read for all who are serious to see solutions in the family and to bring change to the society of today, thereby building bridges for tomorrow.The work can be expanded to reach other cultures and regions of the globe for a wider perspective.
