Family Covenant, The: Love and Forgiveness in the Christian Home
Family Covenant, The: Love and Forgiveness in the Christian Home
This is a reprint of a book first published in 1984. Still much in demand, especially in seminaries and Christian colleges as a text for Marriage and Family Counseling courses, it is being reissued by Hope Publishing House. The theme of the book is when spouses, parents and children agree to live together in love despite their imperfections they form a special bond. Dennis B. Guernsey, Ph.D., calls this a "family covenant." Based on years of research and practice in family ministry, Dr. Guernsey explains how this covenant can affect your family and families in your church. Trade paperback, 115 pp.

"Dennis Guernsey has offered to Christian families a rich resource for their reflection and enrichment. What he has accomplished is both exciting and practical: a blending of the helpful insights of those disciplines which study the family with the wisdom of Scripture. Neither resource has been compromised," says David M. Thomas, director of Regis College Graduate Program in Family Ministry. Adds David  M.

Neither resource has been compromised."

"The ideas flow and challenge readers to review their own conduct in family relationships. There is a casualness in the writing style, but the force of the book is singular, dealing with family attitudes, guided by covenant commitment," says Mark W. Lee, president-emeritus, Simpson College. And Dr. Jay Kesler, president-emeritus, Youth for Christ/USA agrees: "Dennis Guernsey weaves throughout this book the theological basis for behavior. This is done in a respectable, scholarly manner but is illustrated throughout with delightful, vulnerable and real illustrations that bring us to the point." 

Dr. Dennis B. Guernsey had long been a prominent teacher and writer in the field of Christian families. With a Ph.D. in psychology and plus being an ordained minister, he founded the Marriage and Family Counseling Department at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California before going to Seattle Pacific University to develop a new Ph.D. program there in the same field before his untimely death of brain cancer in 1996.
