Not "just another book" on Christian marriage!
"Informed by the riches of the Christian tradition and shaped...by Gaillardetz's own experience of marital commitment and family life, this insightful exercise in the theology of marriage is shot through with earthy spiritual wisdom."—Dr. Michael Downey, Professor of Systematic Theology and Spirituality, St. John's Seminary, Camarillo, CA
"...one of the best books on Christian marriage I have ever read. It is a wonderful synthesis of theological understanding and practical experience—astute, wise and easy to read."—Sidney Callahan, Ph.D., psychologist and columnist for Commonweal
"The best teachers I've had are the ones who are able to put names and labels to ideas I know but cannot readily express. This is just what Rick Gaillardetz has done in A Daring Promise."—Leif Kehrwald, author of Marriage and the Spirituality of Intimacy

RICHARD R. GAILLARDETZ, Ph.D., is married and the father of four sons. He is the Thomas and Margaret Murray and James J. Bacik Professor of Catholic Studies at the University of Toledo. He is a popular speaker at theological and pastoral conferences and author of several academic and pastoral books and booklets.From AudioFile:
A professor of Catholic studies reads a rich and compassionate essay on how modern marriage can be framed within the laws and blessings of traditional Christianity. The presentation is a journey into the topography of marriage--a partnership in which our spouse is less someone who fulfills desires than one who cajoles and demands that we grow as individuals. The author is a careful teacher who talks about many facets of married life--parenting, sex, emotional intimacy, emotional loss, and salvation. He excels at placing the demands of marriage in a spiritual context and showing how the Church supports our struggle to grow. We marry because we seek growth; this audio convinces us that, with thoughtful effort, we will. T.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
