Table of Contents
Deeply rooted in the traditions of the
church, Charles Taylor brings both the
resources of faith and the skills of
contemporary psychology to bear in the
crucial arena of premarital guidance. Taylor
also provides helpful guidelines for
churches in establishing congregational
policies for both premarital counseling and
the design of the wedding service itself. An
ideal resource for clergy, premarital
counselors, and congregational wedding
committees, Premarital Guidance
provides the theological and practical
knowledge and skills necessary for guiding
those seeking marriage in the church.
"In Premarital Guidance, Charles Taylor does not rehash well-worn phrases about marriage. He combines systems theory, cognitive therapy, sociological data, and the traditions of the church with pastoral theology and pastoral care from a new and fresh perspective . . . an eminently practical book."
