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.
