Religion and Family in the 1980s: Discovery and Development

Keywords

Abstract

Journals in the fields of family, religion, sociology, psychology, and therapy are searched for articles examining both religion and family. The interface between religion and family is being addressed by social scientists studying the family who also have an interest in religion, and by some social scientists studying religion who also have an interest in family. Few articles examine the interrelations among multiple dimensions of each institution. This review reveals a pressing need for more serious theoretical and conceptual work that incorporates multi-dimensional approaches and is specifically designed to illuminate the interrelationships between religion and the family.
