The Catholic understanding of marriage comes from the heart of Scripture. In Scripture and the Mystery of Marriage and Family Life, authors Scott and Kimberly Hahn, Mike and Terri Aquilina, and other apologists and their spouses as testify to the joys, struggle, and sanctity found in marriage. Essays include “The World as Wedding,” “Lessons Learned at Nazareth,” and others. Scripture and the Mystery of Marriage and Family Life also provides prayers for the Dedication of the Home and Family Sacred Heart Enthronement.
Bishop R. Daniel Conlon of the Diocese of Steubenville, Ohio, writes in his Foreword: “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.”
Contributors include Scott and Kimberly Hahn, Curtis and Stacy Mitch, Regis and Libbie Flaherty, Mike and Gwen Sullivan, Leon and Maureen Suprenant, Stephen and Rachel Pimentel, Edward and Elizabeth Sri, Mei-Ling and Richard White, Curtis and Michaelann Martin, Terri and Mike Aquilina, and Jeff and Emily Cavins.
About the Series
This benchmark series brings together the expert knowledge and personal insight of today’s top Catholic apologists on topics at the heart of the Catholic faith. Whether you’re a non-Catholic who wants to learn about the Church’s teaching, or a Catholic who wants to become a more articulate defender of the faith, the Catholic for a Reason series is for you.
“Too many Catholics have suffered amnesia about the urgency of sharing their faith for the salvation of the world. To be better evangelizers, Catholics must first be better rememberers. The core memories of the Christian faith include not only sacred Scripture, but also the lived experience and learned wisdom of the believing community—which we call Tradition. We will do a much better job of preaching Jesus Christ to the world when we wake up as believers and remember who we are, why and what we believe, how we got here, and from Whom our Catholic faith comes. This book, as you will discover, is an ideal place to start.”
