Abstract: 

Observing trends and patterns in the relationship between work, family, and religion, this collection of essays explore its historical dimensions, analyzes current dynamics, and assesses future possibilities.
Written in the backdrop of a growing interest in family issues such as working parents, child care, parental leave, and general support services for families, the essays are grouped under the broader themes of assessing current trends and exploring new patterns of relationship between work, family, and religion. Some of the trends analyzed are: the relationship between traditional family structure and religious participation; the impact of emphasis on individual choices as they bear on religious participation; the relationship between women’s labor force participation and religious participation; the impact of feminist ideals on work, family, and religion; and, the links between traditional family values and religion.
