Sample text

Viewed this way, family values are not essentially worth promoting; whether or not they should be promoted depends on the characteristics of the particular family values under consideration. However, values can be seen as being of value in their own right. When we hear someone say, for example, “He is a corrupt person without any values,” or, “I respect someone who is more concerned with values than with money and power,” the speaker might grant that there is a sense in which a corrupt person has bad values such as excessive fascination with power.

The interpretations presented here are offered as perspectives that clarify, or at least stimulate further reflection on, theoretical and practical issues referred to in the introductory chapter. Whatever their limitations, these interpretations are useful in showing that the essential meaning and precise practical import of certain widely discussed Scriptural texts on family matters are not as transparent and one-dimensional as some avowed authorities on those texts would have us believe. On reflection, some of the texts may be seen to impart strange family values and thus to call for deeper reflection and more resourceful interpretation and application; and one may discern patterns in various Scriptural texts on family matters that reveal important cultural relations between Biblical religion and the family that have generally been overlooked or underestimated.
