Overview

The Family Metaphor in Jesus’ Teaching examines the family metaphors for God (Father) and believers (children, brothers) that Jesus chose to use. Jesus not only held up a child as an example of receptivity, but he defended actual children, warning against despising “one of these little ones.” Using current discussions of the equal-regard family and the importance of human fathering, Stephen Finlan explores how the Gospel entails a changed model of parenting and marriage and a new approach to spiritual growth.

Praise for the Print Edition

In this careful and beautifully written book, Stephen Finlan demonstrates not only the importance of the family metaphor or the message of Jesus, but also that the equal-regard family is not just a construction of abstract theology, but rather has a true basis in the Christian Scriptures.

—Don Browning, author of Equality and the Family
