What is a family?
One of the many jobs that I have not managed to squeeze in (till now) in the rush to get caught up after the summer holiday and before that a trip to SBL and to visit family in the UK was to visit the blogs of my Tyndale Carey Graduate School
colleague, Mark Keown. On his (almost?) eponymous blog Dr Mark K
has a fine post on a topic that concerns me" What is family
" (for my posts see: " What is a family?
" "Does the Bible present a preferred pattern of family?
" and "Reading the Bible: seeking teaching on family
Mark and I seem (I only write "seem" because although we are now colleagues we work in different institutions and meek but rarely and have not talked about these issues face to face!) to be in profound agreement, but Mark's post presents a positive view that corresponds to and perhaps fills out what I wrote from a more cautious perspective.
