Publisher's Description

2008 Catholic Press Association Award Winner!

Couples who marry today enter into a relationship that is in many ways more challenging than it was a generation or two ago. The social institution of marriage has experienced almost cataclysmic change. The very foundations of marriage are often questioned. Yet Christian marriage, David Thomas insists, retains a power to transform and sanctify lives. Thomas presents in this second edition of Christian Marriage the same view as he did in his first book: a positive view of Christian marriage grounded in sacramental living. Yet this edition is entirely new as Thomas reflects on how current theological, cultural, and economic perspectives influence and inform Christian marriage. Thus A Journey Together (the subtitle of the earlier edition) becomes The New Challenge. And readers enter with Thomas into a discussion of contemporary concerns such as intimacy and sexuality, gender equality and relational spirituality, and parenting with hope in a world of unknowns.

Facing these challenges of marriage, Christian couples will discover ways to meet the one great challenge: to love each other as Christ Jesus has and continues to love us.

. . . a delightful and insightful short theology/spirituality of marriage.
Catholic Studies


Christian Marriage is a wonderful theological reflection on the challenges and rewards experienced by men and women bound together in holy matrimony. . . . Christian Marriage is recommended for parish libraries.

I know a young couple contemplating marriage who will get a copy of this book immediately. And it just might be included in every wedding gift I offer in the future.
