Best-selling author William Bennett calls Americans to make
defending and preserving the traditional nuclear family their
highest priority. The nuclear family-both within and outside of the
Christian community-is under siege as never before. With the
dramatic increase in divorce, illegitimacy and single parenthood,
our society is witnessing the voluntary breakup of the traditional
family unit on a massive scale.
"The traditional family," says Bennett, "is vital to [our]
civilization's success. If it fails, almost everything else does as
well. Yet there can be no doubt that...it is indeed failing." In
this strong and vigorous, sophisticated and informed, and
spiritually relevant defense of the nuclear family, Bennett
presents an urgent call to reestablish the idea of marriage as an
arrangement between a man and a woman, monogamous and freely
chosen. Marriage, Bennett explains, should be the institution
through which children are conceived and born, nurtured and raised.
Not a gloom-and-doom scenario, Bennett's book is, in fact, a
positive affirmation of family life-and a compelling argument for
why a traditional understanding of the family leads to greater
human flourishing and happiness.
