Elizabeth Marquardt on the Impact of Divorce on Children and Faith

Elizabeth MarquardtFrom the 2010 Word & World Lecture Series at Luther Seminary, in this presentation Elizabeth Marquardt addresses The Inner Lives of Children of Divorce.  This whole lecture is worth the time to listen to, but make sure you don’t miss the last half which is a Q&A session with the audience.  Ms. Marquardt is an important voice, I would argue the most important voice, today on the topic of the impact of divorce on children’s faith.
