Strengthening Our Families: An In-Depth Look at the Proclamation on the Family (Paperback)
In 1995 the First Presidency and the Council of the Twelve Apostles published The Family: A Proclamation to the World, in which they boldly declared revealed principles and doctrines about the relationship between the sexes, marriage, and family life. Church members have been challenged to learn its doctrines, apply them in their lives, and defend them to the world.
This compilation of essays by more than 80 respected LDS theologians, sociologists, and thinkers across many disciplines explores the Proclamation in depth, illuminating its rich doctrine and key principles. The book also offers hundreds of practical tips for strengthening marriage and family relationships, guiding children, and helping families in challenging circumstances.
To be used as a textbook in the Department of Marriage, Family, and Human Development at Brigham Young University, this readable and helpful guide will also be a rich source of inspiration and understanding to general LDS readers, particularly parents, teachers, and Church leaders.Published: July 2000
