About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The book opens with the editor, Erica Bachiochi's return to the faith as well as an admission that living as we were intended to live is hard even if it is worth it. She writes: "The teachings of the Church on sex and marriage are not easy to live. Through them the Church asks us to do much that is against our (fallen) nature, much that is against our culture. But by prayerfully living according to Church teachings on sex and marriage, we are not only protected from much emotional, physical, and spiritual harm, but these teachings also have the power to transform us into persons capable of both giving and receiving selfless love for where we were designed".
Who doesn't want to receive selfless love? Everyone, but to do so, we must live to give selfless love and this means living as the Creator intends for us to live.
Other so-called feminists will tell you that women should be free to choose to abort your child, have sex "like a man", strip your feminine identity of all that makes you a woman and you will be happy. Each contributor to this anthology gives economic, sociologic and mental health proof that abortion, divorce, contraception et al are bad for women. If you don't want to look at the theological and scriptural proofs that are offered, then you have to admit to the science. Each writer has included many proven studies and solid intellectual conclusions to refute the crazyfeminists mantra of so called "freedom". Again, if we would just live as we were created to live, we would be safe, happy, successful and society would be in far better shape.Read more ›
