The author blends spiritual narratives and biblical stories with behavioral theory to explain
modern family life and its unique contributions to faith formation. This book offers hope and
encouragement for people who have thought that God could not possibly bless them in their
peculiar relationships or families.

Using archetypes and behavior development frameworks while interpreting and retelling biblical
stories, the book features both personal and traditional stories of faith, complemented by the
contemporary insights of cognitive scientists, including Gardner, Eisner and others.
