The family: A christian perspective on the contemporary home Excelente libro sobre la base de la familia según el plan de Dios. Tiene un profundo abordaje basado en una investigación seria y contundente sobre todos los aspectos teologicos, sociales, culturales, y sicológicos de las dinámicas familiares y como se construyen las dinámicas de las mismas basadas en el plan divino de redención, perdon, empoderamiento, intimidad y comunidad.Lo recomiendo a educadores, pastores, padres de familia. Maravilloso
