  • Revisiting Church teaching on 4 types of marriage
  • Assaults on marriage today and how to avoid them
  • Faith & reason for the fundamental truths of marriage
  • Renew your confidence in the Church and her teachings
  • Masterful and insightful book

This powerhouse of a book masterfully vindicates the Church’s rich teachings on matrimony, the priesthood, and religious life. Drawing on sources ancient and modern, pagan and Christian, Eastern Christian and Western, Dr. Peter Kwasniewski will teach you:

  • The four kinds of marriage (can you guess them?) and four reasons why marriage is noble
  • What the pulsating heart of marriage and family is and what marriage cannot exist without
  • The lessons we can learn from the marriage of Mary and Joseph 
  • The two greatest mercies of God (they will surprise you!)
  • Three ways to explain the meaning of sexuality to your children
  • Sixteen arguments and replies regarding priestly celibacy

Dr. Kwasniewski demonstrates that both the dignity of marriage and family and the evils arrayed against them—pornography, self-gratification, premarital sex, divorce, contraception, and abortion—can and should be seen not only in terms of what they are but also in terms of what they signify spiritually and cosmically.

In the midst of a growing totalitarianism hell-bent on diluting, relativizing, ostracizing, and ultimately obliterating chaste and fruitful love, Dr. Kwasniewki extols the sacramental dignity of the human body, shines the light of faith and reason on fundamental truths about vocation and the gift of self, and renews confidence in the wisdom of Holy Mother Church.
