The Family: Threats, Tensions, and Biblical Truths

May 2016    

Many feel that the family is facing pressures and challenges of all kinds today and that its future is under threat. We need to turn to the Bible to gain perspective and direction, to understand God’s blueprint for family life, how human sinfulness has marred it, and how God’s grace can redeem, heal, and bless family relationships. What can the church do to help families experience renewal in the light of external threats and internal tensions?

Come find out at this ETHOS Institute™ Engagement Series public lecture by Bishop Emeritus Dr Robert Solomon on 10 May 2016. Dr Solomon served as Bishop of The Methodist Church in Singapore from 2000-2012. He had served previously as a medical doctor, church pastor, Principal of Trinity Theological College and President of the National Council of Churches of Singapore. He is the author of the ETHOS Engagement Series book, Marriage and Family: A Christian Perspective.

The ETHOS Institute Engagement Series aims to address pertinent issues in church and society from a biblical and Christian perspective. Authored by theologians and scholars in different fields, this series of booklets discusses a variety of topics, including theology, politics, economics, education, science and the arts. It is an important resource not only for pastors and leaders of the church, but also for Christians who wish to reflect more deeply on the most important and pressing issues today.
