Format: Paperback
Pete Vere and Jacqui Rapp are canon lawyers with more than 15 years of Church tribunal experience between them. Vere is an author and professor living in Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, with his wife and four children. Rapp, an Assessor, Judge, and Defender of the Bond for several U.S. dioceses, lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with her husband and two children.

Their 100 questions book is designed to cut through legal jargon in an effort to increase understanding and ease common concerns about the annulment process. Using the question and answer format, they describe situations in which canon law is applied in regard to marriage and its validity. They introduce 100 questions with a simple explanation of how the church defines marriage, what is required to enter it, and why some marriages may be declared invalid.

The first eight chapters cover such issues as marriage preparation, impediments to marriage, and the requirements for a declaration of invalidity. We learn that although the term "annulment" is used in the Church it is not technically correct since the marriage is not ended, as in a civil annulment, but is declared invalid. In U.S. and Canadian dioceses, the majority of cases investigated fall under canon law 1095, which relates to an individual's lack of judgment and discretion about the rights and obligations of marriage. In addition to common grounds for seeking an annulment, Vere and Rapp present two general chapters on the annulment procedure: Who's Who in an Annulment Case and The Formal Process for a Declaration of Invalidity.

Their final chapter addresses a single question on building strong and happy marriages, a topic not strictly tied to canon law, but one the authors find relevant. They offer eight suggestions: pray, eat, play, and talk together; be kind; work with your differences; hold hands; and practice natural family planning. The accompanying explanations contain examples from the authors' own marriages.

Format: Paperback
The book Annulment - 100 Questions and Answers for Catholics came into my life at the perfect time. As a candidate in the RCIA process I found this an invaluable tool that helped me decipher some of the mystery of the annulment process as well as providing priceless technical information. Best of all, this is presented in an easy to understand question and answer format.

Many Catholics do not understand the details of the annulment process and sometimes it is hard to get straight answers when you are considering or actually undertaking the process. This little book is like having your very own Tribunal on your night stand!

The annulment process is very personal and can be a very difficult emotional journey. It is nice to have some hands on information right at your fingertips. This book would be great for anyone wanting to learn more about the inner workings of the process and a priceless tool for any Adult Ed leader or most especially anyone involved in teaching the RCIA process or marriage groups within the Catholic Church.

Definitely two thumbs up!

Format: Paperback
I've seen numerous books on the topic of annulment, but have to say that this is one I will be recommending to friends and acquaintances who are seeking information on this important process. Pete Vere and Jacqui Rapp have approached the topic in an informative, and yet very accessible fashion. Organized into 100 questions and answers, the book helps the reader feel that you are having a conversation with a friendly, trusted and knowledgeable adviser. I would highly recommend this book to anyone investigating an annulment.
