About the Author

Browning and Gloria G. Rodriguez, eds. Toggle navigation Navigation. Sex, Marriage, Family, and the Religions of the Book This project analyzed of the role that Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have played and can play in forming and reforming theories, laws, and practices of sex, marriage, and family life. It was directed by Don S. Stephen Warner, University of Illinois at Chicago. A timely, important, and engaging book, American Religions and the Family explores the two core and complex social institutions that most influence identity and society.

Contributors consider the responses of these cultural systems to each other and to the challenging forces of modernization. The book breaks new ground by showing how modernization and responses to it influence the most fundamental human social organizations and personal identity. This terrific book will be valuable to anyone who wants to consider how Americans understand change, faith, and family.

His research and teaching interests include Catholic moral theology, Franciscan spirituality, comparative religious ethics, and the moral thought of Theravada Buddhism. Given the growing pluralism in family structures, this chapter highlights the role of religion and spirituality in the formation and maintenance of diverse types of families.

I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories.

We outline commonalities and differences that exist among major world religions about forming and maintaining family relationships. Consistent with the predominant conceptual model called religious familism , most research on faith and family life focuses on traditional families i. We summarize findings on these families that largely assess spirituality indirectly via markers of religious participation e.

We then review in more detail research on spirituality within nontraditional families, focusing on families comprised of cohabitating couples, same-sex couples, and single parenthood because these nontraditional families have received the most, albeit limited, empirical attention.

Given evidence of the interdependence of religion and traditional family forms, research is needed to determine the relevance of spirituality for nontraditional families.
