9780814782507: Marriage After Modernity: Christian Marriage in Postmodern Times

For most Christians, marriage is considered a sacrament, created and uniquely blessed by God. Yet, the theology of marriage rarely matches the actual experience. Marriage is too often a violent, loveless institution-and it is increasingly delayed, avoided, or terminated.

Marriage After Modernity offers new hope for Christian marriage at a time of unprecedented social and theological change. It provides an unreserved commendation of Christian marriage, reaffirming its status as a sacrament and institution of mutual self-giving. At the same time, it breaks new ground. It draws on earlier traditions of betrothal and informal marriage to accept some forms of pre-marital cohabitation and provides a new defense of the link between marriage and procreation by sketching a theology of liberation for children. Chapters shed new light on divorce and legitimate theological grounds for 'the parting of the ways,' contraception, and the question of whether marriage is a heterosexual institution. Particular attention is paid throughout the book to overcoming the androcentric bias of much Christian thought and the distorting effect it has had on marriage.

Marriage After Modernity argues for a vision of marriage which does not abandon its history, and which draws upon its premodern roots to grapple with our current social, cultural, and intellectual upheavals.

About the Author:

Adrian Thatcher is Professor of Applied Theology at the University College of St Mark and St John in Plymouth, England.

Review:

"Hogan makes a convincing case for White Castle's influence."-Jonathan Yardley, "Washington Post"

"A fascinating story . . .Hogan tells a truly American success story--luck and hard work behind one man to create an industry so pervasive that today it's an integral part of American pop culture."-"Publishers Weekly",

"A scholar's lively account of how White Castle, now a largely overlooked but still profitable also-ran in the domestic restaurant trade, made the once-scorned hamburger a U.S. institution and launched the fast-food industry. . . . Informed and engaging perspectives on an often ignored aspect of cultural and commercial Americana."-"Kirkus Reviews",

"Full of fascinating details, not only for devotees of the ubiquitous 'slider, ' but also for pop-culturists interested in American fast food and how it all got started."-"Minneapolis Star Tribune",

"David Hogan's love of fast food goes back at least twenty years: I remember talking to him while he gulped down a McDonald's before the start of class. Few historians I know would be able to translate their penchant for fast food into a wonderful case study of the first chain to sell huge numbers of hamburgers-to-go. "Selling 'em by the Sack", which traces the fortunes and failures of White Castle from the 1920s to the 1990s, deftly blends biography, social history, and corporate history. In doing so, Hogan gives us a fascinating glimpse into American popular culture." -Andrew Achenbaum, Professor of History, University of Michigan
