-Publisher

Recent studies show that married men and women on average have better health, enjoy more satisfying sex, and accumulate more wealth than single adults do. If this data is true, then what is an ethically responsible way for the professions of law, medicine, therapy, business, and ministry to handle this information?Experts from theology here team up with leading practitioners of the professions covered to bring theological balance to the new secular health view of marriage. Each chapter pursues one of a number of relevant and engaging problems relating to married life. How should the Christian faith deal with arguments that justify marriage on the grounds of improved health and wealth? Can theology appreciate the health claims about marriage but still retain its traditional covenantal and sacramental views? The issue of divorce and its effects on children is a part of the debate as well as deeper considerations of the relation of religion and health.
