Do we really need families anymore? Can't "significant others" play the same role in our lives? Isn't it time to give up on the old-fashioned idea of what a family used to be and accept change in these modern times as inevitable? Won't our lives be just as good now and in the future without trying to recreate some kind of "family" unit from the past?
Well, if any of these questions have ever crossed your mind, or some of your friends are wondering the same kinds of things, perhaps the film Irreplaceable might help you think things through and come to your own conclusions. Here are a few people's thoughts about the importance of seeing this film:
"Very powerful! Should be mandatory viewing for America . . . (and) the world!" Wess Stafford, former CEO of Compassion International
“Irreplaceable is a very thought provoking film that looks at some of the core issues affecting our families today." Tony Dungy, bestselling author and Super Bowl winning coach
". . . a powerful film . . . about the family and the need for committed fathering. Irreplaceable has the power to change our culture for the better." Carey Casey, CEO of The National Center for Fathering
"I'm honored to be part of this film. Family is simply one of the most important concepts in human history and it is currently dangerously misunderstood and undervalued." Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author
For many of us, when we think about our families, some pretty strong emotions are stirred up. Hopefully there are several of our most treasured memories. But all too often pain and disconnection and scars come to mind. Sometimes we feel like we "can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em." But deep down inside, we have a sense that families are the foundation of our society and our lives.
Yet, instead of celebrating the power and beauty of our families, our society today is pushing for dramatic changes within the family unit, and has been doing so since the last episode of Leave it to Beaver aired on TV.
How important are families in today's world and looking ahead into the future?
