Leaving Home (Family Living In Pastoral Perspective Series)

Herbert AndersonKenneth R Mitchell

$47.99

Paperback
This series examines major changes that occur in the life cycle of a family: leaving home, becoming married, raising children, recommitting to a relationship -- or committing to a new one -- and living alone. Books address the major task of the family; rituals that enable effective transitions as those tasks change; beliefs and values from the Christian tradition that shape and are shaped by those family tasks; and pastoral opportunities in response to family life-cycle agendas.

- Publisher The authors demonstrate that leaving home is a significant part of forming an individual identity and a natural aspect of maturing. It is also a lifelong process, but one that is desirable and appropriate for both the one who leaves and the ones left behind. However, understanding the process requires care, and this book helps clarify what is at stake in the complex ordinary process of leaving home.
