Editorial Reviews

"Fr. Paul Turner's Inseparable Love is one of those rare books that is both scholarly and pastoral. For scholars he offers deep background on the reformed rites of marriage, particularly by making available the discussions and debates among the drafters of the reformed rites on various aspects of the theology and practice of Christian marriage. For those with pastoral responsibilities he offers a host of practical suggestions, born of years of experience, for carrying out the rites with fidelity and grace. This is a splendid and indispensable resource."
Deacon Frederick C. Bauerschmidt, Professor of Theology, Loyola University Maryland

"This book is a must-read for those who wish to seriously study and understand The Order of Celebrating Matrimony in all its intricate details. Pastors, deacons, catechists, liturgists, and musicians who prepare the engaged couple for the liturgy of marriage and prepare the liturgy for the worshiping community would benefit from this highly annotated and scholarly work. Fr. Turner leaves no stone unturned; he gives a thorough historical background to each and every paragraph of the OCM while at the same time providing a pastoral examination of present-day realities in the celebration of marriage."
Dolores Martinez, Liturgist and Music Minister, San Antonio, Texas

"Inseparable Love is Paul Turner at his best. Historical study is perfectly integrated into a theological account of the new translation of The Order of Celebrating Matrimony. The commentary on the various texts and rubrics are both pastorally and theologically rich. Even someone who has spent a lifetime studying the theology of the sacrament of marriage will discover something new in this volume. This in-depth commentary should be read by liturgical theologians, graduate students, those involved in marriage formation, and every member of the clergy."
Timothy P. O'Malley, PhD, Associate Professional Specialist, Director, Notre Dame Center for Liturgy, Institute for Church Life

"Paul Turner is a sure and reliable commentator on the newly translated Order of Celebrating Matrimony. This paragraph-by-paragraph commentary is comprehensive, including in its view liturgy, history, translation, and custom. It is readable, pastorally useful, and delightfully interesting. Highly recommended."
Fr. Anthony Ruff, OSB, Associate Professor of Theology, Saint John's University and School of Theology-Seminary

"Inseparable Love is recommended for all pastoral teams and theological libraries."
John Leonard Berg, Catholic Library World
