Water Is Thicker than Blood

An Augustinian Theology of Marriage and Singlehood

Jana Marguerite Bennett

Much theology overemphasizes marriage to the detriment of ecclesiology. Using Augustine as conversation partner, this book considers the relationship of the Church to marriage and singleness. This examination of salvation history and worship illuminates a different vision of households, governed more by the waters of baptism than familial ties.
