Table of contents

This text captures the important relationship between religion and the family with a review of relevant literature on the subject, synthesizing it within a theoretical framework. The book shows how these two social institutions work - or don't work together. Much of the research is historical in nature. This assists the reader in understanding the links between the two social phenomena. Literature is drawn from folk religion, Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
