Format: Paperback
As a mathematics teacher and engineer, I appreciated the straightforwardness, the logic and above all the thoroughness of this book. All married couples, couples contemplating marriages, teachers and ministers, that have any belief in God, should read it. Detailed history is presented on the use of contraceptives and why they were feared not only by the religious leaders of all faiths but also the general public. Calvin, Luther and other prominent Protestants as well as Roman Catholics are quoted. The insights of the religious leaders of by gone years are phenomenal in that these people predicted that the use of contraceptives in marriage would lead to the break down of marriage, the abuse of women and wide spread promiscuous behavior. Mr. Kippley also shows the readers, in a very lovely way, many aspects of marriage. These aspects along with a healthy and sacred view of conjugal relations will help all couples over the tough times and lead to a more loving and caring society.

Format: Paperback
John Kippley, both in this book and with his his organization, the Couple to Couples League International, has done a great service for Catholic couples during our age of high dissent. To get an idea of how powerful an argument this book gives, I may mention that this was the book that started Scott Hahn on his path to Catholicism (his review appears on the inside back cover).
Kippley proves his case from every conceivable angle; from scriptural covenant theology, from the Magisterium, and from scripture directly. While he is presenting his case, he does a wonderful job dispelling objections, handling the hard cases, and putting an end to the propoganda that our liberal society pits against what they like to call "Papal roulette", or Natural Family Planning.
I very highly recommend this book for couples, singles, and teachers who are interested in this topic. Whether you are unconvinced but are sincere in following God's will (Catholic or Protestant), or if you are already convinced and would like a more effective tool with which you can share this teaching with others, this book is for you.

Format: Paperback
A book which explains why contraception is wrong, and much more. Exposes the abortifacient nature of most contraceptive devices. Very valuable indeed.

A.M.D.G.

This was an outstanding book. Mr. Kippley puts forth the most clear and insightful teaching on why the Catholic Church teaches as she does in regards to marriage and human sexuality. No Catholic should go past the age of twenty without reading this fine book. We live in a world that has lost its collective mind as a result of contraception. This is the antidote. The teachings of the Church are looked at in great detail and the beauty of God's plan for the marriage act is communicated in seventeen words: "Sexual intercourse is intended by God to be at least implicitly a renewal of the marriage covenant." I wish I could buy a copy of this book for every Catholic I know, but every adult would benefit from it. God wants everyone to know these truths and not just those who profess the Catholic religion. Thank you, Mr. Kippley.

Great book answering a lot of questions that people have about marriage, sex, and Church teaching. You can learn so much from this single book, and the authors are absolutely incredible theologians.
