After retiring from teaching sociology in 2002, I was concerned about how quickly social and moral values and public legislation were changing from support for stable family relationships to sexual license and family dissolution. I spent the next year pulling together information for my book "Wrestling With Angels - The Sexual Revolution Confronts the Church".
"Wrestling With Angels", published in April of 2003, examines the last 60 years to document: 1) the influences that encouraged or resisted these changes; 2) the consequences for individuals and society; and 3) how these changes affected Judeo/Christian policies and practices.
Organizations and individuals that encouraged or resisted changes are identified and discussed. Chapters include discussions on radical feminism, sex education in the schools, childhood sexual abuse, abortion, homosexuality, pornography, divorce, sexual misconduct in the church, reproductive technologies, and changing influences within seminaries.
While each chapter is discussed sociologically, identifying different perspectives and how denominations are responding in various ways, I conclude as a concerned Christian mother in regard to the consequences of changing behaviors for individuals, families and religious practices.
