Because our parents are so important to us during our formative years, we especially crave their blessing and are hurt if we don't feel we have it. But this lack can also be felt between brothers and sisters or husbands and wives, or even within a church. To help address these needs, Gary Smalley and John Trent have written this important study of an easily overlooked but powerfully effective concept for families and professional counselors. - Jacket flap.
