Description

As of late, society has experienced a shift in the understanding and definitions of family. This study carefully analyzes the themes found in various interactions between God and humans in the book of Genesis, viewing them through the lens of family. The vast majority of the texts that record direct verbal communication between God and humans reveal that God initiates such encounters in order to develop and define healthy families. This research contributes to the scholarly discussion surrounding families from a theological perspective motivated by insights from the behavioral sciences, and also provides practical implications for modern-day families.
