Comments The Broken Hearth: Reversing the Moral Collapse of the American Family

  • Grace

    I had planned on reading this book quickly and dropping it off at the nearest thrift store when done but after reading this book I can't do that anymore. There were some remarkable arguments in this book about the basis of marriage and the devastating effects of divorce upon society that I need to be reminded of as marriage seems to be attacked from every side.I loved what he wrote about marriage on the last pages. He quotes Tim Keller in his description of marriage as similar to a gem tumbler. [...]

    I started this book yesterday and am hoping to finish today. William Bennett reviews what is happening with the decline of the family and well as the redefinition of marriage. It's so refreshing to hear people who are against redefining marriage. He says that those who are wanting to keep marriage and family in tact are being bullied and we need to put our foot down. Bennett refutes common ideas about gay marriage and how it won't harm society. He also counters the idea that conservatives don't [...]

    I loved this book! None of the opinions were new to me, I agreed with everything, but it was great to hear the opinions out of the context of my religion and in the context of cold hard facts/statistics and politics. I am not really into politics so I was interested to learn about how legislation has affected the whole decline. There is a whole section on gay marriage that made so much sense and put into words a lot of what I have thought about.It made me appreciate so much the value that we pla [...]

    i'm quite tired of reading that marriage is in crisis and that marriage was more successful in the past. the question of the purpose of marriage and how its changed over the years never crossed his mind. while everyone argues that women should be equal, but due to the change in gender roles and society being more accepting of single parenthood and children outside of wedlock, marriage is now doomed. can it be reversed? should it be reversed? what if the path that we're on is the better path, and [...]

    Broken Hearth gets quickly and effectively to the heart of the matter: the state of marriage being the source of many social ills and instability. The author makes a great case by presenting the problem, addressing its supporters and critics, and proposing realistic solutions. He supplements this with case studies, as well as cultural and historical anecdotes to show the evolution of mores in the past fifty years.


  • Joe

    This book was a gift from a mutual friend of Bennett's and mine, who knew I enjoyed his books. Bennett included a note in my copy: "To Joe Massery - I hope you enjoy this. Stay in the fight. - Bill Bennett." (I liked the note better than the book!)


  • Bob

    This book is an older book but explains how America's broken moral compass came to pass. Dr. Bennett does an excellent job writing.


  • Shannon

    It is nice to know that some of us aren't the only ones with these opinions:)! Good book.


  • Ashley

    Wow. This book rings of truth. What a great boost for those of us who still believe in the family unit. Marriage=man+woman, Family=man+woman+children


  • Kaye

    It was necessary for me to read.
