There are two Americas. One boasts solid families, well-paying jobs, safe homes, and good education. The other has children raised by one parent, poor neighborhoods, crime, and low-paying jobs. What has caused the divide? In this penetrating study, James Q. Wilson argues that the answer lies in the importance of marriage and the devastating effects of divorce and cohabitation. ^ Wilson's meticulous research shows how the erosion of family life has damaged children's futures, leading to school dropouts, teenage pregnancy, and a greater likelihood of emotional problems, drug use, and criminal activity. With precision and persuasiveness, he reveals the sources of today's crisis -- from the glittering ideals of the Enlightenment to the shameful practice of American slavery -- while also offering bold solutions. Incisive, intelligent, and thought-provoking, "The Marriage Problem is a clarion call to rebuild the family, and society, by returning a solid marital structure to its core.

PRODUCT DETAIL

James Wilson

James Wilson has served the Kingdom of God over four decades as educator, pastor, and founder/president of international parachurch ministry PrayNorthState. He envisioned and helped organize Bible Breakthroughs in multiple American states and nations - including Australia - and God gave him vision to organize and lead the first retreat for California legislators. His vision for a California Day of Repentance spanned four states and Canada's British Columbia. It resulted - by God's grace - in cultural shifts with pragmatic impact. He has a special heart for ethnic reconciliation and has delivered plenary addresses to multiple World Christian Gatherings on Indigenous Peoples, but his heart is to engage encouraging relationships with indigenous and immigrant leaders. His blog reaches some four hundred thousand readers. He believes the last Great Awakening is just beginning alongside the End Times Tribulation. He is married to Jillian and is the father of three children.
