Hardcover- 244 pages
Marriage and family life lived according to God's plan can change lives and change the world! Scripture and the Mystery of Marriage and Family Life explores the Scriptural basis for the Catholic understanding of marriage. Join Scott and Kimberly Hahn, Mike Aquilina, and ten other well-known Catholic authors, who along with their spouses, present solid Biblical testimony to the joys, struggles, and sanctity found in the sacrament of Marriage. Essays include "The World as Wedding," "Lessons Learned at Nazareth," and "Reflections on Pope Benedict XVI's First Encyclical." From the Foreword by Bishop R. Daniel Conlon of the Diocese of Steubenville, Ohio: The nursery rhyme concludes that Humpty Dumpty couldn't be put together again. Some people today think that marriage faces the same situation. Fortunately, many people are willing to keep up the good fight and believe it is winnable, indeed, must be won. Among them are the contributors to Scripture and the Mystery of Marriage and Family Life. The volume is replete with solid Catholic theology and idealism. . . . While reaffirming the natural law, the authors also sketch out the unique qualities of Christian, sacramental marriage. They cite frequently the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and recent popes, especially John Paul II. . . . Scripture and the Mystery of Marriage and Family Life is not all theology, however. In fact, it is filled with the concrete experiences of married couples who strive to live out their vocation day by day with God's help. Many of their examples of marriage and family life are touching and very real.
