A larger vision of 'family'
Many commentators, both religious and secular, assume that a narrow definition of family is readily mandated by the biblical texts. They're wrong.
The careful and thoughtful argument about why magnanimity is at the heart of an alternative vision of family - paying careful attention to sources, contexts and interpretative behaviour - is set out by Deirdre J. Good in her important new book, Jesus' Family Values. It's available (via the link) from our online bookshop.
Today we are pleased to be able to offer an excerpt on Ekklesia: Wrestling biblically with the changing shape of family.
